Default Headlight Washer bottle Brainstorming

OK while the cars were parked next to each other in the garage, i got to thinking about the issues with installing intakes on the 92-94 SSE/SSEi'* with the HL washers....as i Looked over at a 97 washer bottle it struck me...instead of using the 92-96 washer, why not use the 97+???. the 97 has a design that is shorter and wraps aorund the Strut Tower

the 97+ will give you much more room and it mounts in stock locations

comments??

Will it fit with the compressor in the '92-'95 location?

The 97-99 bottles will fit much better and have plenty of room for the compressor. Only downside I see is loosing the washer ability for headlights. However with a little ingenuity we could use one pump for both.

Tap the bottom of the tank and run the pump inline.

Who has problems with intake setups?

I retained my OEM double tank and HL washers no problem.

I think he is talking about non rice pipe users.

I know that it was a squeeze trying to get my CAI to fit well but I'm also prob. running the biggest CAI box, filter, and intake tube on a '92-'99.

correct, and Willwren you dont have the heatshield totally sealed on all sides (not that there is anything wrong with that) but for ppl like me who did a totally enclosed box, its just an option

I could very well seal it entirely if I needed to in it'* current configuration.

Trim the end of your rice pipe at a slight angle at the TB, and you won't impact.

I trimmed my silicone reducer for the ADTR pipe to fit perfectly where I wanted it.
