I'm planning on aluminum tubing going into one side of the airbox... and have a shield (probably cardboard since im cheap like that) behind it to block engine air going in... here, let me do an mspaint...

MS Paint LOL



Okay, the gray is of course the 90 bend or so that would venture onwards into the old part of the intake box. The Brown represents the cardboard that would sepereate the engine bay air. the red is the continuation and the green is the K&N filter. Yes I know I cant stick everything where it is in the picture, it was a quick drawing. LOL enjoy

Those clips are from my page as well Sinister, i have them up there to compare to eachother, not necessarily have an exact sound. Some day i'll take the laptop out there with a proper mike on the bumper or something and see how it is.

The 95 SLE SC cars got 2.25" after the resonator, all the way to the muffler. And these cars are typically quicker than a stock S2. Marty'* was the same way.

Putting 2.5" on a LeSabre will gain nothing, and may lose low-end.
