Default this could make some extra HP.

i found this site turbohoses.com
check out the air ram intake , 45 degree bend and the
transitions/reducers.
i've seen the hose and it is sooooo smooth
and the air ram should act like a velocity stack
it could free up some HP
what do you think ?

Too short, too many bends. Won't work for you.

It may work, and it'* a very high quality product for sure. Some 00+ guys might want to look into this, but the 92-99 may be slightly far back. However it may still be close enough to the fender, the only way to be sure is to try.

Nice stuff there though.... If anyone wanted to use straight 3" pipe, they could just get a 45* reducer from them, and a couple of those beefy clamps...

Delete the 45* rubber coupler and turn the pipe around. This is only if the pipe is the proper size for our cars. 3" non sc and 3.5" or 4" if SC'ed.

Willwren ,
i'm thinking more in line like 2000SILVERBULLETS intake or
1 45 deg. bend and a 3 1/2" diameter pipe with a AIR RAM on the end.
