I did some reading thru the threads about the ait-intakes and such, but nothing on the 4 banger was found. SO....Here are a couple of pics of it and a couple questions. I would like to kill the box and put in a cone. Question is what do I do with the sensor on the top of the box? It's the only wiring hooked up to the air-intake that I can see, and when you dis-connect it, it runs like crap and drowns it's self when you throttle up. A little coaching would be appreciated .

Why do you want a cone filter? there really is not much of a gain from them(usually trhere ius a loss due to you are now sucking in Hot engine bay heat) Usually just intake noise....
if you REALLY want one you can get an adapter on ebay....
