I received the vehicle with the air intake already on(real shotty work to if i had a picture youd laugh) but the car runs, throws codes, but runs. My question to yall are, are these two hoses supposed to be just stuck in them? do i plug them? theres one skinny hose from the intake manifold to the air intake and another fatter hose from the bottom of the intake manifold to the intake as well. they just made holes in the piping and put them in there and electrical taped it to try and keep air out i guess. Im trying to figure out cause im gonna make a new intake with aluminum pipe and ima just drill a hole and fabricate a fitting on it

The small one is usually just capped off. It runs a vacuum actuator on the stock air box. The larger one is your pcv hose. An intake made for the vehicle would have had a port manufactured into the tube for it.

From that setup I am almost willing to bet you have a minimum of 3 codes. bank 1 and bank 2 lean and a maf sensor code.

If you have oil bypassing the pcv valve, a filter or a catch can will prevent oil from entering your intake and burning it.

yes it is an eyesore. someones very poor way of going cheap for no benefit. they would have been better off spending their $30 on a better stock style air filter.

i was goin build a air intake kinda like a short ram with a filter and tubing from pep boys and and a maf housing i got off some site,
Handwriting Rectangle Font Material property Parallel

it was gonna look something like this sorry for my bad writing but i know your gonna say its sucking up hot air but my question to you honestly is is the maf sensor to close to the filter? should i put a pipe between the fliter and maf or should i put the maf on the other side of the pipe next to the throttle bodyand also the tubing is gonna be 3 inch aluminum

The maf needs a straight run of pipe before and after it for 3 inches minimum. If you want to have it at the filter, you'll need a different style of maf with a honeycomb across the whole tube. And 3" piping will require a tune for your car to not run lean, as the sensor won't have as much air passing it directly.
