JC sport isn’t around anymore at least not under that name. Rallispec is opening back up soon and you may be in luck there since they made a good MAF intake IIRC. You could modify a Cobb intake if you want I can email you the instructions if you want antother member Danz borin did a really good job making it each file is about 1 meg. Another option is the weapon R intake lose some low end but gain a lot of top end I got a similar model of ebay for $40 did some cutting and had a good filter on there and called it a day. It serves it purpose for right now until I come up with something better. Larry Ganz is another option Here

i, as a fellow MY98 owner, had the same problem... and i picked up a used JCS j-tube from another 98 owner who had recently wrecked his in bad weather... so i contacted larry ganz.. and he pretty much spelled everything out for me as to what i needed and how much it would cost... here is the list...

(1) a PRM filter www.SubaruPlanet.com/product2.htm#prmfilter for $139.95 + $10.95 S&H to have drop shipped to you from my supplier (also in the note specify silicone color)
(2) order the kartboy MAF adapter
www.SubaruPlanet.com/product2.htm#mafadapter which ships from me $35.95 + $6.95 S&H
(3) order a stage II upgrade for the MY00 intake
www.SubaruPlanet.com/products.htm#stageII for $49.95 shipped - having seen you order a PRM filter and MAF adapter I will know to substitute a 45 degree bend instead of the 90, plus add a 3x3 connector to cover the bend where it enters the fender and include an extra piece of 14" long hose (to split down one side and pinch onto the edges of the hole in the inner fender to keep it tight qand not rattle.)

larry is great to work with, and very helpful...

all in all... it took me a day to install everything... and it sounds awesome... the car really growled from the front end at WOT... of course with the header back exhaust system now... the ENTIRE car sounds good... :biggest:

i'll post a link to the pics i took during the install once ImageStation stops being a beotch...

What about an SAFC. I thought that the 99's needed them so that they didnt lean out (especially with the Weapon R unit).

Anyone?

I went the Cobb Tuning route.

squared away, do you have pictures of your setup? I would be interested in seeing how similar/different our approaches were. I modified a used Cobb Intake from somebody on the I-Club for use with my 97GT!! Just like you, I love the sound, actually noticed a very nice increase in power above 4500rpm (where the stock box would just crap out).
