  • Time Goals

    I have purchased the maf adapter, a cone filter, and an exaust cam. All to be installed soon. Also plan to advance the timing. Once done, I am going to remove, spare/jack and my passenger side seat and go to the track on around half/ a quarter of a tank. Plan is to weigh in at 2300 with me in it and try to hit high 15s in the quarter mile. I have a 1995

      since you have a 1.8 you don't need a MAF adaptor.

        Well, its the part you need to attach the actual filter.( i guess thats not the adapter thing? idk,lol)

          nope, the adaptor is need on the 1.6 cars to go from a square inlet to the round opening of the air filter. The 1.8 MAF is round and a decent cone filter will fit right on it.

                I know a 99 that ran a 16.2 stock, so i figure with around the same hp and being lighter, i should be able to hit high 15s

                  I've heard from a bunch of tuners that just slapping a filter onto an air meter is a bad idea. You get really turbulent air directly from the filter. Having some tubing between the filter and the air meter helps to smooth out the airflow.

                    I think thats true. The intake designs that seem to generate the most benefit move the filter away from the MAF

                        Sounds like that would make sense with the spacing between the AFM/MAF, then again, meters are lame. Get rid of it.

                          It depends on the type of MAF. The one in the 1.8 cars have a honeycomb built inside that straightens the air flow over the sensor.

                            I'm assuming your doing the exhintake cam mod? If so, would you be willing to dyno it before and after? I'm curious as to what kind of power gains are received.

                              i'm gonna dyno after I do mine, but i'm thinking my result will be somewhat exaggerated from the itb's.
