I'm no expert in this area so i'm sure someone will chime in soon. My recommendation is that you try contacting the seller or try and sell it yourself. The newer models that use MAF sensors are totally different and more sensitive than the earlier models using the IAT sensor. Don't think you'll be able to use what you have except for the filter itself.

Again i'm not an expert in this so may be wrong! Out of curiosity how much did you get the intake for?

I've seen someone try to adapt the older intake to the newer motor, not very successful. I'd take it off your hands, but I just blew my mod budget for the next few months.

Cool that fits my 2003! If you could please send me a shipping quote on pm to saudi Arabia , Dammam city zip 31411 through USPS. If the quote is reasonable I'll take it bud!

2002 have the IAT sensor and don't cause much problems. I currently have a custom intake that I put together and no problems whatsoever. There's an article on how to make a DIY intake, easy to do and as cheap as $20 :eek:
