I hate this stupid "frisbee" under my hood, i was wondering if there is anyone who makes a smaller or some type of mod to get rid of this ugly intake top.

i have seen someone, somewhere on here with some custom looking one but i cant find it now, and i have searched but its hard to find info on something that you dont quite know what you are looking for.

Here in holland there's a company that's called Pipercross, they have also a kind of mushroom shaped filter for this type. I had it on my previous Swift to, sounded great.
Here a pic, but it's very small, so you really have to look very well (sorry :p)

you could get a turbo pressure hat from BadGS750@aol.com The pressure hat is $35, that includes shipping.

I think i saw it on car domain but some guy with tbi went "holley carb style" and just had the huge air filter in the bay. Not sure if that would work, take some modifications for sure.

these pressure hats actually restrict airflow big time for an NA motor. when i had my metro megasquirted and had the turbo off it, i continued to try and use that pressure hat... watching the manifold pressure though on the ms, the engine would build vaccum big time... ie. not enough air flow=less power.

in terms of your sensors... the yellow one (air temp) it doesnt matter where you place it... you can take it out and just let it hang in the engine bay... wont make any difference. the fuel pressure reg. obviously must stay there but does fit under those pressure hats... but as ive said, i wouldnt recommend it.

If you connect a K&N (or whatever) cone filter that way, is it still gonna help performance even though it's suckin hot air? and if you do, do you remove the stock filter element and leave the housing clamped down? I dont see why you'd need both, but I wonder if it's structure is still needed...

I just wanna know. I just removed the restricter in the fender and noticed the difference it made, and now I'm interested in putting a decent filter setup on it. If I take out the restrictions in the intake, will it improve gas mileage? or will the increased airflow cause it to eat more gas too?

... questions, questions, questions...! as you can imagine I annoyed the HECK out of my gradeschool teachers! :lol:

I just got a K&N filter for my '95 1.3.

I completely removed all the tubing and screwed down the filter, with nothing covering it.

I wasn't aware of the sound/performance difference something so small asa K&N filter would do to this car, but omagawd. The intake has a really agressive purr now, and I noticed a bit more power in the low/mid range.

If I ever get around to taking a pic I'll edit it in.

remove that top screw and add the top round hat
tape the hole in the filter with a rubber and glue,

that tbi bridge is going to make air restrictions

When I remove the bridge, what exactly will hold down the air filter, and what's the purpose of mounting brackets where the base of the bridge used to be?

well you must use the brackets to hold the under part of the filter hose
and then must use the top part to hold the filter
like my pic
it works fine and the filter cae has some rubber that protects the dust to enter the tbi, cos it presses the filter down
it´´s more safe than the one you have

if necesary brake the divisory lane that divides the case in two parts on the round top of the filter, it allows air to enter in much more quantity :twisted: :twisted:
you will undestand once you remove it and look into it :wink:

yes this is the same air filter that EDELBROCK makes for the carburated cars i was thinking that also. should fit nicely, i wonder what modifications that took if there was any that needed to be made.? :)

I bought a similar one from advance auto a few weeks ago and it said that it will fit most 2/4 barrel carbs with 5 1/8" openings.

THIS WILL NOT FIT (or at leas in my case 93 1.0) :evil:
turns out i needed about a 4 1/8" opening. so now im onto another intake as well. :twisted: but if you are handy and make a mount "gasket" it will work. hope that helps. :D

The filter isnt doing anything better than a new paper filter. the reason your getting a sucking wheezing noise (or 'aggressive purr') from the engine is because you removed the fender silencer and lid. Its an air filter, not a miracle worker.
