uh, jason, the plastic isn't the problem (and to be fair, its a composite), it'* the egr stovepipe. read the sticky at the top of the forum. the upper intake design didn't change at all (until very recently) from 95 to 04. which is why its the same part number - and if you tore a 96, 99, and 04 apart (non series III of course), you'd be looking at the same piece of plastic.
