I don't think there are any noticable gains by just going to the '02 intake tube by itself. People that have upgraded to the '00 to '02 MAF have used the '02 intake tube to make it a cleaner install. Our intake tubes won't accept the larger MAF without some sort of adapter. In order to take full advantage of the new MAF, you will need to have a custom chip burned with the transfer function of your new MAF. The chip coupled with the new MAF is where any hp gains would be seen. I'm not sure about how much gain would be seen on an otherwise mostly stock car though. I hope this helps and makes some sense.

Does anyone have a picture of the '02 intake tube we are talking about?

Does it bolt right on? I have a 95', which to my knowledge doesn't have an intake tube other then stock that will fit due to its location... So if it will fit, i'm all for it!?

ccornett: just about the only tube that you can use is a civic intake tube from your favorite auto supplier or a richardm tube. I believe he is making them again so pm him for the facts.

here's my shafty setup instead of using the gt tube (I do plan on switching over to a gt intake tube when the funds are available b/c it looks crappy and i dont trust its integrity)

i got a GT tube for about 25$. I got it because it was easier to mate the LMAF to the tube. Its about a 3.5inch diameter, i used silicone hose before i got the GT tube to mate it to the OE tube. Also, i like the fact that it already has the intake temp sensor tapped into the tube already. After putting it in, i noticed that the car revved a little easier and breathed a little better. If you can find one for the right price, why not get it, its more of a straight shot to the throttle body and looks OE so the smog nazis in the Socialist Republic of California might not notice it.

It's the 96-97 V8 guys (or those with PI head+intake) who use it... It's practically a direct swap, just abit of rewiring.

I have my 02 GT MAF, airbox, and intake tube sitting in my living room and it appears to me that it has the built in IAT sensor. It has the 6 pin connector into the housing and it also does not have a provision for the sensor on the tube or the box. I double checked the part number and it is the 02 part number. Any ideas?

maybe it was made late in the 01 year when they changed it over and they stamped it 02. The bad part is that you still need the 03 connector b/c the 97 connector doesnt have the IAT wires incorporated into it. It's under $20 and just requires some soldering.

why do you need to use the IAT on the MAF when you have an IAT ready to plug the hole in the Tube?

supposedly if you get the same year mustang air tube, and im talking about the one w/ the maf incorporating the iat, the airtube doesnt have a hole for the iat.

So if you have an airtube w/ a hole for the iat and a maf that has both the maf and the iat sensor you dont have them from the same year car
