The 01 Escape I used to own had a Semi-Custom CAI. Basically I used parts that were avail. And mounted them differently.
I had a Weapon-R Intake Tube that is avail for the Escape 3.0. Installed a Heat Shield around the filter. Used the Ram Air Kit and mounted the "Funnel" behind the Fog Lamp instead of inside the grill. This was made entirely of Weapon-R components. And I cheated on the MAF. I used a GMS from an 01 Ranger 4.0 SOHC. Mounted right in. And was wired the same as the Escape. The only difference was the Ranger 4.0 had a slightly larger bore.
Not sure if there will be any CAIs avail since the Malibu has a history of being a family car.
