I am sure at least one of you out there can help with this one.

I just got a universal cone filter. I tried installing it but I find that there is no place to put my air temp sensor, also, its sucking in real hot air. Anyone know how to make a heat shield for my 94 corolla?

Thanks

You'll need to drill a hole in the piping for the sensor. You can even reuse the grommet on the stock airbox.

As for the heatshield, you'll have to get creative.

Not like you'd likely want to do this since you already have a cone filter, but you can find them with heatshields. I know Ractive makes them.

You could go back to the stock intake, and regain that low-end torque you lost:D

Or get a hood scoop.

Heat shield... hmmm... I know someone on here used a street sign:D I think someone on the boro crew.

Heat shields don't seem like they would do a lot. I mean, hot air is still going to be floating around under the hood.

Just find some thin metal and bend it.

You can buy a heat shield for a short ram intake on ebay, search for "Heat Shield Corolla"... It's not going to help that much. You could make your own or you could make a custom CAI.... Hehe, try using a pipe from a dryer, as in a washer and dryer. Form a box of some type of metal around the filter and run the pipe from the box to somewhere that it will take in colder air than the engine. It's ghetto, but it works if you do it right. :cool:

Heat shield won't do anything. The hot air will move around the shield. Use K&N filter with stock airbox or go CAI.
BTW, stock airbox IS a CAI ;)

lowes sells a/c ducts. you can cut a hole through your hood and stick the ducts out through the hood. it will look like a snorkle....... It would be different

And ricey!!!!!!!


Somthing I think would be cool is get Z3 vents in the front 1/4 panels, and then hook your air box directly to that wall. It would work well to take in cold air, and it would still be a shorter passage then the full intake. So it would also give you that deeper sound. And the vent on the other side woulde help to cool the engine bay.

Take a look at my Corolla at Yahoo Photos for more idea.
You'll see what I did to the filter.
Link is below.

That's hillarious that you called a snorkle ricey and suggested Z3 fenders in the same breath.:lol:

Z3 fenders = played out generic rice

A lot of ricers have done Z3 vents, but it doesn't mean that they can't look nice on the right car. I don't think they are too over played. At least not in quality built cars :)

A snorkle, well that is just crazy. Unless you are building your car to go off road.:lol:
