March 6, 2008 - The stock intake needed to be modified to fit my car.
The biggest problem was the big loop in the #1 runner in the header. The stock setup basically drove directly into that. Not good. So, a little bit of trimming and a chunk of pipe later, and voila! The tube is made of hard rubber, so it fit around the pipe really nicely. A clamp ensures nothing comes free.
On the left side of the picture, you can see how my air temperature sensor fits in the bung originally used for the idle speed control valve intake on this 1994 part. On my 1999 throttle body, that intake is inside the throttle body so the fitting is unused. The air temperature sensor screwed right in there tightly as if it was meant to be installed in this location.
