    I don't know, a buddy of mine had one on a supra (might not have been AEM though) and that sucking sound was annoying as hell.

    one thing i found is this http://www.mustangworld.com/ourpics/fcar/coldair.htm . thought it would be a pretty fun project. I am sure the premade ones are alot better and i will most likley get one of them eventually. I am pretty sure that one from the link above would not hurt to try.

    let me know what you think.

    btw to any stang owners out there , there are several really good DIY projects on that site.

    As far as the vacuum cleaner thing... if it was in a supra (probably the turbo?) it was probably the turbo you were hearing. They (they being turbos) tend to make a great deal more noise with an open intake. If not... it shouldn't make that much of a difference in noise, I had one on my NA Subaru Legacy GT and it it didn't change the tone at all, just made it seem faster on the butt dyno.

    Racer , If I go ahead and build the one from the link I posted above would something like that destroy the mass air meter? I would rather build the one above, as to me it is more of a I made it myself thing .

    As long as you have A totally airtight seal from the throttle body to the mass air you are fine. Just be very careful, unmetered air coming into the engine will cause problems. You should be just fine.
