While a FWI, no doubt, seems to be the best unit for drawing in the coolest air possible, not all environments may lend themselves to running a FWI in a daily driver. I doubt that a FWI will get any more dirty than any other filter (even here in the desert), but some may prefer to have the rice pipe and cone filter, for whatever thier reason.

I would love to have a FWI for the track, but not sure I would run one year round. Not really sure, though. Probably shouldn't listen to me though...heck, I was all excited when I gutted my airbox and put in a K&N panel

that'* kinda what i'm looking for. A complete cool intake system for the summer.
That'* MY engine, not Squela'*. Intercooler? Huh? Intercoolers go UNDER the supercharger and are very expensive.

That airbox in the pic (I built it) is force-fed by scoops under my front grille. It supplies a constant souce of cool air so the box doesn't have to be completely sealed.

Again, I'm retiring this intake and going FWI.
Quoting myself for page 2 here. I think he'* having a hard time with some terminology, or who'* car that is in the pic.

Intercoolers aren't used on intakes.
That'* MY car, not Squela'*. He just posted a pic of mine.
There'* ALOT more to that intake design than you see.
The filter is a K&N RX-4750. It was given to me by K&N as the first test unit for the Bonneville.
The pipe is one of only 6 ever made custom for us.

I will go FWI because I don't drive the 93 in the winter. I drive the beater 95 SLE instead.

Will - Yes, knew that was your pic...

Cool. You'll need to relocate the charcoal canister/related evap. emissions lines and your PCM. Should be a very happy 40th with a FWI.

if you Arizonians dont have a visual inspection for emissions you can remove the EVAP canister and install a T fitting, and not have a problem....many who have done the 96-99 FWI "lost" the Evap canister

Every two years, your car gets put on the rollers and they sniff under various loads. They check for a cat and do the gas cap/inlet pipe test and lift the hood and do a visual...but I doubt they are looking for the charcoal canister, since they are in so many differnet places on different cars.

An abundance of performance parts, chrome, and "go fast" stickers will get you some "extra" attention

I thought i had seen a thread showing the MOD build; with cut out board too.
I have my 97, but yes if the 96-99 years have the same spacing, all the better.
Just checking if someone had the dimensions already...
Going to be upgrading the intake in January.
This what you're talking about?
