Damn brian, nice pics, now that console is what i would love to have, junkyard here i come, i see what ya mean about the top console, looks tight, i'll be looking into something like that, thanks for the pics:d


Yea lol little stuff like that makes a huge difference to me....
And my 1st post, I didnt mean it in like an "ass" kinda way haha, reading it now it kinda sounds like it, I just said you must have a big budget cus the way you made it sound, I thought you were doing ALL that like within a month LOL.

Just some example pics of what the engine intake will look like, talked with cybergasm last night before he went back on the road and told me that most auto parts stores carry these filter kits instead of paying a grip for the whole unit.

Where'd you get the MAF/Filter adapter from? Pep boys? If so, can you get me the info on it? Thanks

Yes sir, pep boys, for my 2000, it was a spectre performance filter part #8138 works with 3",3 1/2", and 4" systems,,,,,,what's cool about it it has 3 rubber adapters in the filter for the adapter. The adapter is a spectre 3" sensor adapter part #81413 also from pep boys, also had to buy the proper screws and washers and nuts for the proper fit, hope that helped out:)

Thanks, well, much faster off the line, and faster passing up people while driving,lollllllllllll, also have'nt really checked on saving fuel miliage but will test tomarro, also noticed at idle much smoother than before=but i can only speak for my ride cause i know it needs a tune up very soon, but i did notice a smoother difference at idle:D, oh btw it sounds much deeper and just has this killer sound to it, if that makes any sence,lol, and i have'nt even installed the flowmaster yet, wooooohooooo:D
 






Helped out immensely, thank you. Now I dont have to order a MAF adapter from KKM :)
