not a bad suggestion.. thanks!
225, not 280.

The major point here is that the intake needs to be able to FLEX. Don't have it so rigid that when the engine flexes, it presses into the hood insulator.

ah thats right 93 had 225, my 98 has 280
yes I have heard that it needs to flex with the engine; so as long as the pipe has room to move without hitting the hood insulator it'* fine?

You're sortof mixing up non-supercharged with supercharged.

You want a flexible coupler to your TB so nothing gets stressed during flex.

You will probably have to take off a couple of inches off the end of the pipe to make it work. Theres some pics at the link above. I still have to make an enclosure.

hey thanks a lot; would it be a good idea for me to change the positioning of the PCM, ie: on its side, so its more out of the way of the filter?

Yup. Move it wherever it makes sense, and secure it well.

Does anyone know whether or not I can get a replacement case for the PCM or make my own, because the gasket is warped and ripped and one or two of the brackets on the case are broken.

You can get a PCM tray for a relocate from www.intense-racing.com I believe.

Never paid much attention to them. Both my PCM'* are located in the car, not under the hood.
