Default Fenderwell intake.

I have a 92 SSEI, I want to add a fender well intake in the place of the charcoal/vacuum canister. Has anyone done this? Where do I reposition the canister? Do I have to keep it at the same level in the engine compartment or can I mount it a little higher? what is its purpose? I know I have to get a smaller reservoir from a 94/95. Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful.

Please don't post general performance topics in Forced Induction. That'* for SC'*, Turbo'*, Nitrous, etc.

There is a current topic running on the Series 1 FWI already.

Hey Don,

I am also running a FWI in a Series 1, so I would be happy to help you out. The canister is relocated just ahead of its current position, right behind the head light. Mine is just resting on a flat piece of sheet metal, but its probably a good idea to secure it in some fashion (like with zip ties or something).

And I'm not sure what you mean by "keeping it at the same level as the engine," could you elaborate some?

I just took some pics the other day, and I'm just waiting for my brother to scan them, I'll definatley post em up when I have them.

Welcome to the club!

PS, here is the thread Bill was mentioning, you might find all your answers there: http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=39894

Thanks for the info. Waiting for the tubing and IAT extension. I thought that was a good spot for it but did not know if it needed to at the same height as stock in the engine compartment. What is its purpose?
