Don't some of the newer zetecs have the IAT and the MAF built together? You may not need to make a hole for the IAT sensor.

I did a quick search and it says that the IAT may be built into the MAF. If you have 6 wires going into the MAF then the IAt is built in but if it has 4 wires going to it then it is seperate. I'm going to check that in the morning, cause I don't think there is a wire connected to the accordian tubing, thats was what was confusing me.

I went out and looked and it is seperate from the MAF. I finally understand everything now. Thanks everyone for all your help! This place is the best. Now to go and buy all the parts to put it together...

Whats the difference in performance ratings between this and a cold air intake? Or is it the same? Yes i am a noobie at this.

Well I hooked everything up started the car and what surprise do I get....a check engine light! What could possibly went wrong I mean I didn't touch anything that wasn't supposed to be touched. Could it be that the IAT sensor got messed up with me taking it out and putting it in?

Well I then put the stock intake back on and the CEL is still on, so I'm clueless of to what happened. I followed the How-to step by step.

Is there any place that checks the codes for cheap?

autozone and advanced both check them for free. get it scanned and post the code(s). my guess is that you left something unplugged.

The velocity stacks help to funnel air more effeciently. They are not really a necessity on the intake, so you can skip them.
