Hi, I have a 98 Accent GS and was just goign to add a cone filter to the end of the pipe after the maf sensor, will that make a difference and what is the piece that hooks into the stock airbox and do i need it? And my last question is to get cold air I was thinking of using dryer hose and putting it from under the bumper into the engine bay to cool off some, do you think that would help with the heat or would **** off the road come thru it? thanx!!!

check out the pic I posted you can build a cheap intake like this one from PVC pipe like I did!
Placeing the filter on the end of the massair will help some but you are still sucking hot air from under the engine comp!
Installing the dryer hose will help while you are driveing but not on initial takeoff!

Don't worry about crap from the road there shouldn't be enough force to really suck anything into it accept small particles! If you are worried about stuff just put some screen over the end to keep out large particles!!
Hope this helps you!
And yes you do need the air temp sensor install it in the same way it is removed or it won't read correctly!

dont really worry about the air sensor, i did the filter right after the maf and my air sensor is just hanging right next to the filter, i have a hood scoop the will be in working progressive after i pay off some tranny debts.

you really need to build or buy some form of a CAI the set up you have will not benifit you as much as a filter mounted low in the engine comp or better yet in the fender well!!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

damn me for not having a digital camera. the setup i'm using in my girlfriend's 2k 1.5 is the stock airbox with a [email protected] pannel filter and i just cut all the restriction i could from the stock air intake setup. Get rid of all the resonators and replace them with straight pipe i'm using 2.5 inch from one of my old intakes. from the box use intake pipe or something to get some cold air from behind the bumper. With this setup you won't have to worry about hot air because of the plastic air box. The only bad thing about this setup is it is still restrictive. I have gone the clamp on filter route and all you get is sound, the setup i'm telling you about actually works until you get the money to make/buy a true cold air intake. So based on you wallet you can go either way but if you have an automatic to work with like i do it will be much harder because you have less room to work with. I will use this setup till i can find a perfect way to do a full cold air and it fit nicely. In the mean time if you have a manual try kores cold air, rudy has it if you want to ask questions and check hyundaituner.com because they actually have an article on it.
