Sidekick Air Filter Swap

OK, folks. All this talk about K & N air filters has me wondering. I've got a 1995 4-door Sidekick. The Mass Air Sensor is mounted right at the outlet of the air-filter box. She ain't gonna run without the mass air sensor. Does anybody have any experience, or suggestions, for moving the Mass Air Sensor closer to the Intake Manifold, so I can put in a K & N in front of it, and get rid of that big ole filter box? If I could move the MAS, it would be easy to install an e-Ram filtercharger, as well. Help!

Bob

Re: Sidekick Air Filter Swap

Just looking at the airbox setup it looks like it would be a major pain to modify. I'd get a K&N that fits inside the airbox before I went to all that trouble. I'd be much more concerned about the open element ram air filters sucking in water when it gets deep anyway. The airbox is my friend. It would be nice if it was a little more compact though.

I removed my airbox completely and stuck a KN filter directly to the intake side of the mass air flow sensor. No problems to date with exchange.

Re: Sidekick Air Filter Swap

How did you separate the Mass Air Sensor from the Air Box? Do they just come apart, or what? I thought the MAS was pretty much "one piece" with the airbox.

Thanks

I left the mass air flow sensor in it's housing. The airbox is a slip fit over the inlet side of the mass air flow sensor housing. Only problem is the airbox supports the mass air flow housing. I made a bracket from the inner fender will to the sensor housing. email me at [email protected] and I will send you a picture of my setup.
