Exclamation 1999-2004 Stock Air Intake for Saleen S281 SC

Hi Everyone!

Just picked up a 2004 Saleen Mustang Coupe S281 Supercharged and of course it's missing some of the stock parts. It currently has a no named cold air intake on it but really would like to get it back to stock for right now.

What parts should I buy? Should I buy the stock Mustang airbox? Not sure about the MAF and inlet tube connecting pieces. Do I need to get it tuned after?

Picture below is from a stock Saleen Mustang I'm using for reference. I need the parts with the red arrows.



Hope I can get some help!

Stock intakes on eBay...

Saleen Mustang, that should have a Saleen intake, which is not stock (Ford) anyway...

That picture, the MAF is the larger bore for more performance, and looks to me there is
a sensor in it.

Saleen would also be tuned for the Saleen intake. IF the car runs, leave it alone.

You're probably pushing 270+ Hp now. You may hit 295 with a 93 Octane tune....

Luis04R, please create a new thread in the right area for your car.

Anyone else able to help out with which parts I should get to get my Saleen air intake back to stock? Does some one have a stock intake for sale?

DO you want a STOCK intake, Saleen Intake for that Saleen Car, or what?
You keep asking for a STOCK intake, and they're all over eBay....
IF you go to FORD stock, you will hurt performance on the car, and it won't fit.

You just have an aftermarket hose from the throttle body to the MAF tube... That
has to be shorter due to the Supercharger. A STOCK intake, the tube from the TB
to the MAF will be too long, and you can't cut those down to size. The filter housing
is basically the same, from stock, to Cobra, to Saleen. There is nothing wrong with
what you currently have.

All you need is the Saleen for SuperCharger hose from the TB to the MAF tube, nothing
else needs replaced unless you want to reduce horsepower.

Would anyone know the size of the Saleen MAF would it be 90MM?? I missing just the fender wall connection but I was looking into the 03 cobra ones.
