I promise I'll get some pics this weekend
Quite a bit different, your CPU must be located somewhere else, on the 2000+ it'* in the airbox, it'* the only reason I see for such a big box.

Fantastic88...

Did you remove the one that was in the front of the airbox closest to the front of the car and cut the front of the box for better flow? And the half thats near the throttle body, you removed that resonator correct?

Oh yea. The air box is an empty box now. Everything that was in it is out, all shell. I think I might draw dryer duct down to draw in more air. I noticed the differences on the years too. The 96-99 has a bigger air box and the tube curves from the TB to the front of the car. The 00+ has a more compact air box and the tube is much more strait too. No major bend like the 96-99. I wonder which would flow better stock?

Good Question... BTW the 95 L36 has the same airbox as the 96-99 L36'*...he he he... I think the SC 3800 1996-1999 got larger openings in the box tho( slightly ) The resonators were there to keep the engine quiet...
