I went to my local autozone and purchased all of the parts that I was told I would need to assemble an intake. However, when I went to put it on the car, it seems that the MAF sensor does not fit into the part that I bought for the car. Has anyone had this problem, or can anyone provide any suggestions to solve this?

I had to dremel a horizontal slot on the intake. You also have to make sure that your MAF is facing the right way.

reference this man

I was hoping that by buying the MAF sensor adapter that spectre makes, I would be able to get around the dremeling

I take it there's no local store that would carry them then?
I wouldn't doubt they have them, just find a person who can make clean welds and your set.

And that is why I spent the money and got a K&N Typhoon intake. Fits right, right out of the box.

On AutoZone.com you can order part #9405. It has the correct adapter and is a perfect 74mm on the inside of the tube so your Cobalt will not throw a code. Check my garage for the pics. I also used the P3 filter #9132.
Hope this isn't to late to help.

I left the stock box...and apparently my car runs pretty good from the times I have seen here. It was stock at the time too...most new cars don't like having the MAF disrupted from its factory location...I used a reducer from the stock box to a piece of leftover intercooler piping my buddy had from his DSM build...and ran a 90* Silicone coupler to the TB. Then I yanked out the bottom of the air box and hacked the car out of it pretty much exposing the entire bottom side of the K&N Drop-In I have. Probably does just a good of a job as the $300 intakes do for ~$50. Pic of it is in here...
