I think that'* me.
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=50513

I did the bottom half of the plexi before I broke down and bought a dremel (hacksaw ). It would look a lot cleaner otherwise. I used that dremel to also shave down the PVC collar - glad I got it. There'* probably a better tube material out there to use for the collar that would be just as stiff without being as thick - but I couldn't find/think of one at the time. You need the collar to mount the IAT and to connect the hose and filter since the K&N flange is only about 1/2" long and the same diameter as the intense hose. I've also since added some weatherstripping along the edge of the airbox to seal it better.

I actually will be moving to Wheaton in about a week for the summer. Filter was $28 (free shipping from ajusa.com), hose was $24 for 2 feet plus shipping from Intense. I still have scrap PVC and an extra sheet of Plexi of the same size too - but those are cheap to get locally. You'll also need Intense'* IAT extender ($16 and ship with the hose)unless you know how to solder/extend it yourself. You'll also need a few hose clamps but those are super cheap too. Like I said, I'll be in Wheaton in a couple weeks and depending on my schedule we could make a project out of it since I could have the PVC and plexi.
This is a stupid question, but you have the same style airbox I do right? Not the previous generation style I've seen on some other '95'* that'* super thin like pictured below? I forget exactly when the series II came out...

is it like that?

that'* my only engine pic, and it'* worse than that now.. every time i go to detail or wash out the engine compartment, parents always go 'OMG YOU'RE GOING TO SHORT SOMETHING OUT OR THAT ENGINE CLEANER WILL EAT THROUGH YOUR GASKETS"

so i have been forced to leave it like that.. but that was the first night i had the car, like fourth pic i took of it , haha

I was pretty sure you had the series II since you were planning the same mod - duh - but I knew of 95'* with the series I. 1993SLE pointed out that was only the supercharged models - hence my confusion and reason to ask the obvious
Again, I'll be happy to help answer quesitons as you go along, or if we happen to work on it together in a couple of weeks. In case you don't have it already, the K&N part number is RU-3130.

damn, i'm tempted to just give you $80 and have you make it

kidding

I'm keeping this thread in my favorites so I can remember what stuff goes into this

It'* an easily done mod that has potential for my car in the future.
