It'd be nice if it did... but I don't think we have the room in the fender.

Yes, it will. Relocate the Charcoal canister. It'* been done by 2 members already. Moving this to Performance. This is NOT a Forced Induction post.

I've done it. However you have to remove the washer bottle if you have the SSEi (dual, which I assume you do) washer bottle. This can be remedied by using the single bottle from an SE, etc.

The intake is well worth it, the whine is loud and amazing...and I went from a CAI w/o a heatshield to the FWI and noticed a big improvement. If you have a CAI already w/ heatshield you probably won't notice much difference, but the whine is totally worth it.

EDIT: I just noticed you asked about the Intense product. I should clarify, mine uses the Intense tubing, but is not the kit itself. My KN filter is somewhat smaller, however looking at the placement of my filter, you should be able to use a bigger filter in the space available.

Got me thinking! I am redesigning my intake (on fellow member'* advice for fighting KR) for a more sealed design and ramair feed (taking a while to find some time due to a LOT of crap going on). I have been considering a FWI just like this but hate to give up that huge washer fluid resevoir. Any chance the intense tubing might me able to squeeze under the resevoir? Maybe enlarge the hole for the charcoal canister once it is relocated? Also, if there was a need for water injection at some point in the future, could it be supported with a FWI and where should the IAT and injector be located? Here I go thinking out loud again.

You would basically need a new hole, there is honestly just no room under that bottle.

Do you save money if you buy just the tubing then buy the K& N off of ajusa? That was what i was thinking of doing. What size is the filter from the Aj site. when i go to purchase one it says it coems in like 3 different diameters but doesnt let me choose which one.
