what i did here seein as i own an older RENIX 4.0L (no one makes **** for these engines so ya gotta do it your self)

any way i took a piece of 3" stainless exhaust pipe in a 12" length cut the needed holes for the hses from the airbox i brazzed on the needed fittings and went out and got the biggest K&N filter they had(6X9K&N w/3" mouth) slapped it all together and tossed that crappy old restrictive airbox and havent had a regret

Price: $30.00
Pros: Beter acceleration and higher torque
Cons: Lower water fording capabilities
Recommended? No

Comments: I cut out openings in the stock intake box below the filter housing line. Then installed sheet aluminum with rivets to cover the holes. No worries about water because the stock housing already had holes for drainage. I just made them larger.

Price: $120.00
Pros: Gave me an extra 5mpg
Cons: Cheap, universal system. Made from plastic parts that have to be replaced after a while
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought a universal kit from Advance Auto Parts. All together everything cost me about $120. Its made out of plastic so you want to be careful not to put it too close to the exaust manifold. Could be prone to leaks but i have not had any yet

Pros: Better than stock box
Cons: nothing major
Recommended? No

Comments: Its actually an AirForce one. I dont know if they are even in business anymore. Its a decent kit for the price but isnt as well thought out as things a little more expensive. Honestly just stop being cheap like i was and pay $40 more for a better product.

Pros: high flow
Cons: uses original boot into intake which is restricting
Recommended? Yes

Comments: def pick up in throttle response. matched with magniflow exhaust you can see a couple extra horses, but it does make an irritating whistle, more so than other higher end filters I've had

Price: $0.01
Pros: Fast; easy; made a world of difference.
Cons: Must replace filter sooner.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Not really a product, but a mod. I took my airbox out, and the tube running from the airbox to the front of the car. I took the tube, and clipped all the pieces allowing air restriction off. I cut it so it would take air directly from the fan. When I started the car after I did all this, it ran incredibly smoother, with less vibration and less noise. Also, the throttle is a lot more responsive. I will be adding a cold air intake to the car soon, but for a temporary fix, this is awesome.
