The only car to run it so far on this Forum had poor results (worse than a gutted airbox) and removed and sold it.

Fwi is the way that I want to go but I hate the look of the rubber hose that Intense uses.... was wondering it is possible to peice one together will regular ( stainless/chrome) that will run the same way. wonder what that would cost.....
I didn't take pictures but the end of the K&N filter that is given in the kit is touching the curve of the bumper. It is near the fog light. It goes down further than I thought.

So this set-up is NOT recommeneded? Why would it have poor results? I really like the way that it looks.. does anyone know of a site that offers something similar with the colors, but that is designed better?

Try a search. I recall (vaguely, remember there are nearly a thousand new posts a day here), that the one and only member that tried it had KR and reduced performance. Not sure if we ever figured out why, but I recall the problem went away when the JMB intake was removed.

So after reading that post I am even more confused. Is it that the JMB extended further then normall that cuased this or was it due to the fact that it was a solid pipe instead of the flexible housing? If it is the vibrations of the solid piping then wouldn't simply padding around the areas where the pipe may come into contact with other objects prevent/solve this from happening?

Explr1 claims it wasn't rattling.

Bear in mind that'* the one and only JMB intake ever made for us, and the development took place right on this Forum. Search in the Vendor'* Forum.

I don't think he was ever able to sell it either.

Get an INTENSE FWI for a 2000 or newer Bonneville. They are perhaps the best option for you.

87-99 typically go with the FWI (not preferred depending on climate) or make their own CAI.

This may be a stupid question and I can tell you are already tired of putting up with me questions.... but anyways.... I work with a bunch of car nuts that keep telling me not to get a CAI or FWI due to the risk of hydrolocking an engine. What is this all about and does the intense have anything built in to prevent this, like the AEM'* do?( I know AEM does not make one for our cars, just using them as an example.)

I am assuming they are concerned with sucking water into to engine. Honestly, if you live in a very wet climate, it may be a minor concern to you, if you drive thorugh deep puddles.

The intense FWI does not have any special covering to prevent the entry of water into the motor. The 2000+ bonnevilles apparently have a plastic splash shield under the driver'* side front fender which would help deflect any liquids from getting directly on the filter, but if you were to submerge the car in a deep puddle, I suppose there is a risk of water through the intake. Prior to 2000+, the FWI is wide open to the elements from underneath the car.

Ask them how likely it is that the filter will become fully submerged, and then figure out how much force would be required to draw that much water up into the intake, and then think about how long the engine will run before it stalls FROM LACK OF AIR before the water even got close.

FWI or CAI. If your motor hydrolocks, you pay shipping back and forth to Oregon with the parts, and I'll rebuild it for you for free labor.

Ask any of your car nut friends to find you ONE documented case on the internet where it actually happened. Not just urban legends or "I heard this happened".

It'* a myth.
