You still need the TB coupler, both sleeves, and the clamps, so there'* no need for a seperate 94/95 L67 kit. The 97 kit will work fine.
at first i thougt the 97 kit came with a tb adapter and 2 couplers. i now see that Todd was refering to the 04 kit that has the tb adapter.

but if i went overboard and ordered 36" of tubing for $36, and $35 for the filter. thats only $71. so, i am paying $109 for 2 couplers and clamps???

The 04 does not have the coupler or the extra coupler or the extra clamp.

As Bills said you want the 97 kit which includes everything you need.

You NEED everything in the 97 kit. It is exactly the kit you need.

There is no PCM tray (or opt out). That is the only item you don't need.



Let me clarify, you need both sleeves, all clamps (not cheapies) TB adapter, tubing, and filter.

The 97 kit covers all that, and is the correct size for your application after Gen3 swapping.

i know it doesnt have the tray. it says something about the 97 pcm being larger, so they give you the velcro. i got that.

i just dont see what the extra costs is. if the filter and the tubing is $71 separate. then how is the 2 couplers and the clamps $100. i know that they are good quality clamps, and not some cheap hose drier clamp. i just dont see what the 100 bucks extra is covering. do you know where im coming from? or am i still just missin something?

maybe im getting confused with the tb adapter. when i hear tb adapter, im thinkin the alum plate-type adapter (for eg, you would use for a gen 5 to work with a ser 2 L67 tb.)

sorry if im becoming a pain, or i seem thick headed about this, im just a confused. (and cheap )

The TB adapter is molded reinforced silicon with a pre-molded IAT hole for the S2 that you won't use if you follow my guide, but it'* a high-quality high-temp piece.

The aluminum sleeves are needed to couple the kit together. They didn't hire an illegal immigrant to cut them to size, so that costs also. Aluminum costs more than steel by a good margin.

The clamps are turbo-rated clamps.

The tubing is VERY hard to find. Trust me.

Then the odd fact that INTENSE has to actually PROFIT from it to pay the bills and salaries.





I'm uber-pleased with the kit that I paid full price for in order to prove that it would be pretty simple to make work with the Series 1. There wasn't a part included that I didn't need, and it would have taken me a great deal of time to fabricate or locate the other parts in the kit other than the tubing which you won't find. The key is the tubing, and INTENSE made the best of it.

Worth every penny I spent.



If you think you can create a kit for little to no effort and less cost, more power to you. When it'* time to retire my ADTR intake from the second L67 I own, I know exactly where I'm going.

Clarification. TB adapter is a silicone coupler. Not some plate. While you won't use the IAT location, the adapter is necessary for coupling to the TB. As I stated before, you'll use every piece they send you.
