    Nice build/write up. Brings back memories of doing my TPI swap back in 02'/03'. Some changes since then and haven't really touched it in the last 4-5 years. Here are some underhood pics of my setup:

    Years of tinkering to get some things setup/run how I wanted.

    The car was setup for MAF and still runs the MAF primarily but one winter I was bored and found someone online who made an adapter harness and added the parts to flip back and forth between MAF and SD, so the car can go either way. I copied it with SD parts and re-pinning donor harnesses. MAF is dyno tuned, the SD is a street tune.

    Sure, it's literally just items from Home Depot or Menards/Lowe's type places, white PVC pipe (forget exact diameter, whatever matches with the MAF) and painted black, then a plumbing connector to a 90 degree elbow in PVC, through the headlight opening in the core support to the K&N filter. I used a piece of chloroplast for the piping to go through and act as a barrier of sorts between the engine bay and headlight area.
