Welcome. Check out the 126 specific section as that is the chassis number of your car. You'll have to expand more on your question about the air intake... but knowing that your engine's and mine have almost identical intakes, I can tell you there's not much room for improvement. Some do switch it out for a dual snorkel design, but from what I hear it provides zero improvement since your engine can only aspirate a certain amount of air anyways. There are mixed reviews on oil impregnated cotton filters. If you're looking for performance the best place to start is probably headers and exhaust, especially if your car is North American spec. Fill out your profile to let us know where you're located as it will make a difference for certain things.
