You shouldn't have a problem getting it to fit.

A lot of people use the rice pipe mod, which is much cheaper. Others have gone with a FWI setup, and a handful have used a Thrasher setup, like the one I have. The SLP was made with W-bodies in mind.

The SLP and thrasher need to be accomidated to fit the H body, and aren't good ideas. They require about the same work as what i came up with, and are then half-assed, and don't work as well IMO.

Save the money and do a fenderwell intake. The SLP only has a 7inch cone and even though I made it fit in my 2k it was never right. The air holes in the engine bay are different from a w-body.

No, no! It was designed for the F-Bodies!
