Iv never heard of someone so desperate to keep there car stock. Just buy an intake from Americanmuscle.com and call it day.

I wouldnt go filterless because it has the ability to destroy your car in seconds. The stock intake is way to restrictive and without alot of time and effort your better off replacing it.

ooo i see what your saying,
he wants to put the cone type filter in the place of the square air box?
I have seen it done to some cars go to the part store and look at the universal filters they usually have removeable spacers to fit what you need.

Since when did our cars have square air boxes?

I'm so confused with this thread.

But really, just get a CAI and toss it on there, how often are his parents looking under the hood? My bets are on if it's not already done then they wouldn't even know the difference...

I was talking about this K&N Mustang Drop-In Replacement Air Filter (94-04 V6 & 94-95 5.0L) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!. You just slap it in where the stock filter would go and call it good. It is however $50, put $25 more together and you could get a real CAI.

For the price of that freaking filter you could buy a CAI and paint it black, his parents wont ever know the difference unless his dad is car savvy. Tell him to go to americanmuscle.com order the CAI paint it black with a freaking 5 dollar can of spray paint and call it a day. Forget the whole filter thing youre wasting your time.

Excuse me you are well on your way to having a CAI for that price of that filter, Filter 50 bucks, CAI 75 bucks, unless you get one off ebay where they are the same thing for like 40 bucks and thats with a cone filter and everything you need to put it on.............
