Don't forget about HP Tuners. They are popular with the GP'*.

The hose we use is much stronger than you think. If you can close two ends together (without destroying it) I'll give you those hose for free

The JMB intake (the only one) ever installed on this Forum caused KR. The owner of the intake went back to the stock airbox, and the KR went away. He sold the JMB on eBay, and ended up buying an INTENSE FWI.

If I were you chr0mius I'd go to CGP and do a little more research on this intake. A lot more people have used them there than over here. A lot of them say it takes a little work to get them installed, but they seem to work nice.

As a GP owner and user of both the Intense and DHP PCM'*, I can tell you that I had a much nicer gain in power with the DHP.

its actually 108, but anyway, you need to get a reprogrammed PCM. for you the only option is to get a DHP, since your a 96

ill vouch for the Intense tubing as well, its very strong, you have to get couplers to fit over the tubing, because you cant expand the tubing to go over the couplers or vice versa, it seriously is very strong, thick, and tear resistant. Its also smooth on the inside despite what it looks like on the outside. Ive been very happy with it.

heres a pic of mine in action on my W-body:

I have a better pic where you can see my whole setup, but its choosing not to work at the moment.

That would prolly be easier for you chromius. The JMB is sweet, and the best looking intake ever (i know you don't care about the looks), but it would prolly require a lot more work getting it installed.

You won't be able to.

This stuff they use is durable beyond belief, yet you can move it around almost anyway you like to make a custom intake. Hence how I made my own FWI on the 98.

Rogue...I'm still waiting on my royalties from that design cause it looks identical to what I made years ago.
LOL!
