Default Intake Question

Ok, I have a 87' N/A and I was thinking of getting an intake just like the one in this video
YouTube - MKIII SUPRA 7M-GE Engine
In the comments the guy said he used a short ram civic intake, but never mentioned what year. So I was wondering if anyone here has done this? Will this intake work?:
eBay Motors: SHORT RAM INTAKE for 92-94 95 HONDA CIVIC 93-97 DEL SOL (item 380015208803 end time Apr-11-08 20:36:42 PDT)

And, I believe I will need this MAF Adapter right?
eBay Motors: 86-92 Toyota Supra N/A Air Intake Mass Air Flow Adapter (item 180231658776 end time Apr-15-08 18:26:53 PDT)

Srry for all the question I just dont feel like spending $40 on a civic intake I dont need.

Im not sure about that intake but that is the right adapter I went to pep boys and got the spectre universal intake I think it was 40 bucks you might want to just do that. Its the same thing pretty much here is a blurrd pic of mine. And here is a link to one on jegs expencive site lol Spectre 8208 - JEGS

Do yourself a favor, if you do want to go with a setup like that, either build a box around the air filter or run longer pipe and put the air filter behind the fog light. It makes a huge difference in air temps.

Just trust me on this, make sure to get the filter air from outside of the engine bay.

I used a complete Civic CAI for my old setup:

For my new one (no MAF) I had to add some more piping.

What about water from the road though when it rains? Would it get into the intake? Someone told me they had that problem on their honda.

I haven't met anyone who's had it happen, but yeah, if you live in a very rainy environment or a swamp, you may want to think twice... in those cases build a fiberglass box around the filter and have that pull air in from where the stock filter did.

My filter isn't directly behind the fog light though... it sits right above it, more behind the bumper than anything.

Thats the main reason why I dont want to put my intake down by the fog light. I dont fell like hydrolocking my engine like my brother did, but he drove his neon into a mini lake . So im just gonna put it where the stock one is and maybe build a box around it.
I just bought the intake and adapter in the link above so I hope it fits good when I get it. If not ill just have to ghetto rig it
