    Hi everyone,new to this site so hopefully will get sum good hints and tips on my new purchase.Bought a 98' 323i se last weekend and can honestly say after never having driven a bmw before im hooked!!Great car to drive,very comfy and the 2.5 litre engine just pulls and pulls!!
    Im after sum advice about an upgraded filter,just got hold of one and im a bit lost?!Ive got the filter on but theres a couple of things i need to check.
    The first is that i got a rubber hose with the kit that i have no idea where or what its for?
    The second is that on the crome pipe i got theres a hole in it that ive been told is for the maf sensor?I cant see that working?does that mean i unplug it and throw the tube it comes with away and plug the whole thing into the hole on the crome pipe?!I was also told that its for the sensor in the air box to plug into?I dont have a sensor in the standard air box?
    Any advice would be appreciated as im a bit baffled by it?

    Hi and welcome...

    I think its the ambient temp sensor your talking about if it was originally plugged into the original airbox,

    if you can plug it into the airfilter piping its fine as in most cases people just cable tie it to the inlet manifold or something close to the old airbox position...

    No...air temp sensor, not ambient air temp. That particular sensor is found in the brake air duct within the front bumper

    So do i really need to stick it into the crome pipe or can it just be left where it is?Just means i have a hole to plug up on the induction pipe.
