'95 sport, 90gt
ok.. i have a 95 sport and i was looking at the stock air box (the one with the cone filter) and thinking about replaceing it. but... i dont realy want to pay 100 dollars for a filter kit. i can buy a filter like that for 20 dollars down at kraigen or elsewhere. so i was wondering if anyone knows how to remove the boot in wich the MAS and filter sit in and a way to attatch the filter to the MAS without buyin the $100 kit. and advice?

There are a couple of things you can do that dont cost too much.
Start out with a K & N filter. Than either enlarge the hole that the air enters the box or pinch down the retaining ring on the MAS/filter holder put the filter on and remove the air box.
I chose to enlarge the air opening cause I wanted cooler air than you get from it just being open under the hood.

I dont know how much difference this has made but its supposed to be good.
Hope this helps some......
