yeah I don't know about you guys but I managed to work something but it's very custom and not working just right yet. I took a 91 Honda Civic intake cut in into two pieces. Put an aluminum sheet-metal tube that I had to make myself to go from the first part of the tube over the belt drive between the fan blade and alternator and stuff. then took the MAF and inserted it into the sheet-metal tube then proceeded to shove the other end of the intake pipe into the MAF sensor piece. It tends to fall out and doesn't really want to stay put yet. Right now it's secured in the compartment with THHN which is 14-12 AWG that's stranded copper wire for those of you who don't know. I had to enlarge the size of the intake manifold with a LOT of foil metal tape the kind that you use on duct work in HVAC systems. Oh and by the way I still haven't found a way to make the air colder, but I figure that I should first get it inspected then finish messing with it. This is just my personal venture into making your own air intake kit but I will warn you if the pipe connecting your MAF to your throttle-body comes off your truck will not run. I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT, TRUST ME. Unless you drive on ONLY flat smooth roads it will come off then your stuck. So I digress needless to say it can be done but unless you like using more gas or you want to do some heavy duty hauling just leave it the way it is.
