    Thats great! I am planning on making these to sell. We could use some aftermarket parts for the Mirage!

    I'm also going to need some help testing the MAF housing out since I don't currently own a Mirage. If anyone else is interested, please PM me.
    Custom Mirage products: Cruise control kit, Glove box light, MAF sensor housing, Rear sway bar, Upper grill block

    Current project: DIY Nitrous oxide setup for ~$100

    That is awesome. Its great to see other owners making parts for their cars!

    I agree, I was thinking of what else it would take to put together a full intake kit too. Its not too much more once you have the MAF housing. My hang up is I don't have a Mirage to test anything on, so I need to get assistance with that part of the development.

    I thought you had one for some reason? I just test parts on my car. Like my custom upper front strut brace, my intake, etc. I hope you find a willing tester.

    PM sent, what a great idea... Glad to see my thoughts on a 3d printer panned out!

    You should have made the diameter of the tube where the MAF housing falls into larger, this will work, but it will be too restrictive for any real HP gains to make it's way to the throttle body no?
