the only part of that piping i messed with was on the air filter side. that's also where the MAF is, right? i don't know what it looks like. i'll try to get that clamp down. i drove the car all over town last night and it felt great. the engine should be cold right now so i'll try starting it in a minute to see what happens.

questions: the intake pipe is rock solid. shouldn't i be able to bend it however i want? is it because the rubber/whatever is so old? if i were to get a new filter, what would i do about making my own route for the piping?

Are you talking about the metal part that goes from the Throttle body and then down next to the A/C area? That isn't going to move period, you could replace it but I don't think its going to flow much more anyways with a stock throttle body on there. If you're talking about that plastic slinky like hose that comes off the metal that should be maneuverable but I just let my shit hang with a cone filter where the stock box used to be, that should not be brittle.

for the plastic part that hooks to the airbox (SEs have that right?), ya it should move some but being so old many have gotten hard and/or brittle.  best bet is alum piping to replace it.  Dont remember if its autozone or CSK that has the "Spectre" DIY custom intake kit.  One of em does.  Its a cheap kit but it works for what most of us need.  Other members have used it.  Comes with a filter and a small assortment of piping and couplers.  Check it out

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch
