Default FWI or Rice Pipe for 93 SE

What would be better, a FWI or a Rice Pipe on my 93 SE. If I really get serious about doing this, a FWI would be much cheaper and easier to make. So, what is yalls opinion?

desribe your thoughts on making a FWI or rice pipe...

IMO, the INTENSE FWI is the only FWi that should be run...

I think buying the materials from Intense and making your own is also a good option. To me the FWI makes more sense, because you should be pulling in cooler air, even moreso than behind the headlight.

An even better solution would be to run something like a lot of the ricers do with the Bumperwell Intake, that would give you the coldest possible air, but is also the most risky. Also I do not know of anyone running a BWI here.

I would say rice pipe because that 3.5" tubing is more than likely too big.

plans werent for an Intense FWI. Really I dont have plans for either one, but I was just doing some thinking after visiting my local PepBoys. They have adapters, flexible hose, and things to mount your filter with. I was just wondering if anybody had one on a series 1 92-99.
