ABD makes a replacement tube if you are looking to do that. for full intake productivity, a heatshield works great to protect hot air from being sucked in the cone filter. Eurosport makes a nice setup that comes with a heat shield, cone filter, and i believe a breather filter. If you are good working with metals it is really easy to make your own heat shields as well.

actually the filter i have on there is jus from autozone. I took box and everything out just put a cone filter on it i still have the MAF sensor on there i drilled a hole in the MAF and put my vacuum tube from the box on there and it works pretty well im jus looking on how much your tubing was from ABD or whatever it was you said and where you gfot it from!

I used to have my intake like that too. I didn't drill the MAF casing and place the vacuum hose like you did though, because MAF sensors are really sensitive.

A few months ago a friend of mine sold me a pipe for $5. It's the one they sell at autozone for hondas. I took it, then went to home depot and got 90 deg. bent pipe for air plumbing. I placed it on the autozone pipe and replaced the stock black hose. It even has a place for the vacuum hose. I disconnected the breather sensor and put a breather filter in place of it.

Not only does it work good, but the CEL isn't even on. IMO it's win win.

I have a pic of it on my computer, I just wish I knew how to post it.

Just use the rubber connectors that they sell at autozone. I think they're like $4. you might need about three of them for the TB connection, The MAF connection and the pipe to pipe connection.

Buy yourself a new MAF, save and buy the big bore and a k&n filter. Will work much better then your current setup. The vaccume lines and simply be plugged on the intake manifold with vaccume plugs.

Autozone 30.00 Integra intake tube with a real K&N dont use that Autozone filter it dont filter shit get a real K&N or youll find dust all over your MAF in a month ..and plan on spending 180-280 for a new one if you drive an MKIII..
