How do I know if I have "SAS" on my car or not?

The easiest way to know is to look for the SAS valve and the hose from the air pump to the air box. Only cars with SAS have these parts. They are labeled with blue arrows in this picture, look for the big, 1 inch thick hose that goes from the "Intake to air pump" arrow at the air box and runs around the battery to up near the radiator where it takes a dive downward:

If your car is without SAS, there will not be a big hose on the front corner of the air box. It will look like this (but the battery and the MAF have been removed here):
