Airboxes changed, 96-98 with MAF unit seperate and 99-2004 with MAF units attached on the box. It can be swapped, but it is not a direct bolt on. I think all you have to do is rewire the MAF sensor and everything else is pretty much the same. I am doing just the opposite on mine. I have modified a 98 airbox with a Supra MAF and Deckplate Mod and putting it on my 04. This way I could always install my stock box should I ever have to take it in for service.deathwishbkr said:I intrested into swaping a '01 stock 3.4 airbox on my '96 3.4. Has any one done this before?
No not the sensor itself. The sensor unit is hardmounted on the newer boxes, while in the older units it is connected onto the unit with screws. However if you are getting a newer unit, the newe MAF should be in it because it is hard mounted(which by the way is suppose to be less restrictive than older units). The connector is the same, you just have to rewire the 3 middle wires, I think. When you get the unit, you will see what I mean.deathwishbkr said:So, will my 96 MAF sensor fit in the the newer intake?
I can't speak for him on this, but I read somewhere that 99-04 MAF sensors are less restrictive than 96-98, but to change the MAF you have to change the airbox. However they also changed around the wires. He may have a different reason for changing it, but this added air flow would be a bonus to his swap.SurfingDrunk said:why do you want to swap the airbox anyways?
let me go check my stock one.deathwishbkr said:Surfing, i want to swap because my 96' box is cracked. I found one on ebay, it sounds like a upgrade as well.
DCabTaco, the two (99-04) air boxes on ebay dont have the MAF sensors, they were removed. So i dont see how they could be hard mounted, right?
