So, I'm throwing a new MAF in today, figure while I'm in there I may as well put a different intake on my T'bird. I already have read enough to know not to buy the K&N kit, so I'm looking at a conical air filter by itself just attached to the MAF. My first question (don't worry, there will be more) is what do I do with the little plug sensor that goes into the side of the air box? Should I attach some hosing to the end of the MAF and cut hole big enough for that sensor?
Second, I want to eliminate the air silencer, what is the most effective way to do this? I keep reading about the 'Civic tube'. Does it have all the right openings for the lines that attach to the stock silencer. And...what exactly is the CIvic tube (I know, a tube for a Civic). Is it a stock part or an aftermarket one? Looking at pic's it looks great and I ccould probably paint it to match the metallic flake green of the rest of the car but want to make sure I get the right part.
I checked in the tech articles, but the links iunder intake kept taking me to full engine mods, which I don't want.
Thanks for helping,
