Hello everyone, so I just got a wild deal on a 1996 Tercel SD 4 speed. It has 83,000 KM's on the original engine. Anyways, I'm looking for a aftermarket air intake Ive shopped around online and haven't found a single site with an intake that fits a Tercel. So does anyone have an idea of what brand of intake I can find to fit my car. Thanks!

If you're situated in the GTA, I know of some places to get cone air filters. It's not exactly a brand name, but it does the job and fits perfectly. My Tercel sounds a lot more aggressive because of it.


As you can see, the only problem is the (Oxygen Sensor?) that I taped onto the entrance of the cone. If it doesn't measure enough oxygen, then the engine light will go on, but it runs perfectly fine. After a while, the light will be off.

There's a Flea Market at Warden and Eglinton, the store that sells it is called TooFast Motors.
Another branch of theirs is at Warden and O'Connor, same store name, but more parts.

Perfect, thank you for your reply. I've actually got a short ram air intake I bought off Ebay that I could modify, it would look just like yours. I was hoping K&N or Weapon-R had a kit specially made for Tercel's but It doesnt look that way.

I rigged up a short ram with some stuff I found at crappy tire. I used a street 90 abs pipe, and a coupler to join the filter to the existing intake hose. I drilled into the pipe to put in the MAF. I then siliconed a fitting into the side for the crankcase vent (i think that's what it is :confused:) then silliconed 'er all together.. cost me about 40$ CAN total to do it. I left the existing part of the airbox intact to help draw in cooler air.. I might actually make a heatshield. I think I'm actually getting some better fuel economy out of it.. I'll let you know if i am, once I need to fill up!
