Does this cold air intake connect to the MAF? If it does, you wont lose your ASC. IF however this goes all the way to the throttle body and you have to remove your intake boot, then yes you will lose you ASC. I know you can replace the ASC intake boot with a 95 M3 one. This will remove the ASC throttle body and improve the airflow thus giving you maybe alittle more power.

Is that a 3.5" intake pipe? The last "silicone" coupler looks as tho it is a reducer. I wouldn't recomend using that intake unless it is used as a cold air intake rather than a short ram. Without a heat shield on a short ram, your stock intake box with a K&N panel filter would be more efficient.

If that is supposed to delete traction you would want to get that hole facing downwards to plug your icv hose into, and I don't see how it would fit that rather large diameter without some sort of adapter plate.

You could try to leave the stock intake boot and maf, then connecting your new blue pipe from there down through the hole near the wheel well. You may need to remove or relocate your horns but you'll have to see. I suggest blocking that hole off on the pipe.

This intake sux. It connects to the MAF I believe. Will I still lose ASC if i get an intake with an elbow that replaces the intake boot and connects to the ICV hose? What is an ICV hose and is it responsible for ASC? If not how does the intake boot control ASC on its own. Replacing the rubber with metal should not affect it right?

Do you want to lose the ASC? I wouldn't get rid of it if you dont have a bunch of supporting mods. If you get a silicone intake elbow you can choose to get ones that maintain the ASC.

The ICV is idle control valve, its just a hose that sticks into the intake elbow and it is not something you want to remove, no It is not responsible for asc.

Replacing the rubber will not affect the ASC, there is two metal housings bolted together on the intake plenum, the one directly attatched to the manifold is the throttle body, and the other which is attatched to the thorttle body and has slight bend is the traction control unit, it narrows down and restricts the intake path slightly.
