Default bringing her back from car heaven, minor delay of game

hey all,

finally we're bringing back the 92 from car heaven and im going down my checklist and ran into a dilemma.

ages ago i decided to put a CAI on the engine. It was an ebay special. K&N filter is what sold me. After being on the club ive noticed that CAI'* like heat sheilds, which mine doesnt have. Should i keep this or do i call intense for their intake? Or, since cash might be tight on this project (fixing things that i wasnt expecting) where do i find a stock airbox?

My last one was made of CB wrapped in reflectex insulation and reflectex aluminum tape. Make sure ya fab up a top fer it also and fully enclose the filter.

Thats my last one was made of until I got my FWI

An INTENSE FWI is the last intake you should be looking at for a 92. Your TB is far too small, and you can't even come close to flowing what the FWI was intended for. This will result in non-laminar flow.

I'll move this topic to the right section for you. 92-99 is for posting mechanical problems, not discussing performance topics.
