Default Intake setup with tcs?

I have a 93 Legend 6 speed coupe and am looking for a cheap way (less than $80) to do an intake with the tcs system intact. If any of you guys with custom setups have pics or ideas it would be a great help!

Is that a MAF in the metal circled area? I see two...looks like vaccumm hoses connected to the plastic piping. Is there a cheaper piping that we can buy and add our own filters to? A pipe is a pipe to me.

I've only seen weapon R intakes for sale. Is there a CAI ebay clone or custom bent piping...size/diameter that anyones knows of?


I had a 2002 Acura CL-S that I bought an ebay CAI piping that fit kinda sketchy....got it to work and bought my own AEM Dry Flow Filter for $40-$45 and it worked better then any full CAI I Would have bought for $175-$250 namebrand. Was satisfied to have bought the VERY last headers for the CL-S from OBX or XS-headers for $125 and bought my own bolts/gaskets. That was the best money ever spent IMO. Single most HP gain in that car...even @ $700 just for a comptech header. Paid $130...well really $150-165 all said and done for 30whp....yea sounds rediculous right....Acura CL headers especially on the CL Type S where all diverted from every cilinder into one tube. Each cylinder had its own tube for $125............................

You get the drift....any alternatives to Weapon R or ????

On a side note...whats the best HP and or TQ gain on the Legend 5/6spd?

^Thanks for clarifying, you know exactly what I'm talking about. If I could find a pipe to fit after the MAF sensor that would be great, just don't know WHICH pipe would fit lol

keep getting some weird code can't remeber off the top of my head what it was. BUT once i took it off the code went away and all my power was back.

still a good price $32 shipped for a short ram intake. but i didn't use the filter that came with it looked to cheap when i got it.
no to mention the pipe was aluminum. not some cheap chrome painted crap. like spectrum.

If you don't want/need the OEM breather tube (TCS to air box) and air box lid after your mod, let me know as I'd be interested in buying it.
