2000-2004 we're all the same style. So more than likely it'll fit with no problems.

We drive Scions, it's not like we'll be breaking any speed records any time soon. We are slow as hell, but dammit if we can't look good doing it.

I apologize if this was taken care of earlier but after 10 pages I can't dig anymore ;)
Most of the links im seeing posted either dont work or two the sites are down. The few that work are for early models. Ive only found one cai for an 07 zx3 and its only 70 bucks so it doesn't sound high quality. Anyone know where I could get one for a newer model?

this is the only one ive found from Spyder auto

AEM's CAI has a bypass that will prevent your engine from getting hyrdolocked. They sell it for $45 or so. That way if your filter gets submerged, it will open and breathe through the bypass valve.

Honestly, I don't get how the AEM bypass filter can do anything unless you just happen to drive into a 2 foot deep hole full of water. I don't see how the bypass filter will open up and take in air from the engine bay if you have a few days of heavy rain: The main filter will probably suck in water with the air it's breathing but by the time the filter is soaked/saturated, the engine already has water in it.

CAIs made for the zetec should be fine with the stock MAF
Appreciator of one of the lamest cars ever made. Zetec Crew #238

Needs more valve body.
