He'd get about the same performance from a K&N. He'll pull something through soon that will cause damage.

The 87-91 Box is really not restrictive... But the intake I stuck on mine sure did seem to help the low end torque, and just made the car more dirveable...LOL

There'* really no engine, NA or not that, can't benefit from better air throughput. That'* what the SC is all about, after all. Of course at some point you have to improve the rest of the throughput restrictions.

Title didn't tell me what this was about, so I renamed it. Then I moved it to the right forum.
