Maybe it is time for a thread asking all that have done the LIM porting to post comments about their experience both in the process itself, and the resulting performance gains.

Ummm.....please snap a pic of your RPO label in your trunk on the spare tire cover and post it here.

I see you have the L36, but I'm going to assume you also have FE2 suspension and H4U. It would be good to know that setup, as the location you show is an oddball, and probably ONLY for the SLE package with a very uncommon FE2 (like my 95), but with the L36 instead of my L67. That being the case, when you convert to FWI, you can use the standard 92-95 L67 compressor bracket and relocate to that location as shown on my 95 SE (SLE-Supercharged):

You have an SLE package (H4U) and FE2 suspension. To date (to the best of my knowledge) yours is the only other 95 SE with the SLE package and FE2 suspension besides mine.

Do you have ride control also? (CCR)


In the meantime, relocate your compressor with a 92-95 SSEi or Supercharged SE bracket to the stock location that they used on other cars besides odd ducks.

Not quite two of a kind. I got the L67. One of these days, we'll have to compare options.

Go to the wrecker and get the bracket from any 92-95 SSE or SSEi. (Some SSE'* have FE1 and will not have FE2/ELC)
