Default I need solutions for a FWI on a 93 SSEi

I need solutions for an FWI.

Should I use the INTENSE FWI? will the IAT sensor reach or fit?

How do I make the INTENSE FWI fit on the smaller 93 throttle body?

Use a silicone coupler of sorts for the FWI Tubing? then what do we do about the IAT?

I'm at a loss here and need soemthing

My CAI is non functional, even with a heatshield it will not help much, the problem itself is in the metal tube that conducts heat and a lot of it. I've seen it 160* on a wamer day (rice pipe temp on the middle of it)

Either insulate your tube using what I did (search for my intake insulation test topic) or go with a FWI.

I'm in the midst of a test-fit on an INTENSE FWI on my car, but I'm not done. I have, however, installed my IAT bushing already. It'* in the adapter between the tubing and the filter.

On the 92-99, you MUST install splash shields under the front left fender if you want the filter to last.

I have been thinking about this lately. I have and have had the 3" rice pipe setup. I think it flows good and i have it insulated pretty good, so the temps are probably pretty close to amblient. But i was wondering if you guys thought i would gain anything going to a 3.5" FWI. I know the temps would be a little lower, so that may help a tad. But i guess the true questions is with my rockers is there a change i am outflowing the 3". Or should i wait until i do the TB?

Both of you guys need to think about what the restriction in your intake system really is.

For both of you, it'* the TB. Not the CAI or stock airbox. At least not by much.

Here'* an oldy but goody:

jr's3800 asked me to make some throttle plate comparisons, and I found an interesting
item in the process.

The 94/95 L67 TB actually should flow slightly better than the S2 L67 TB based
on diameters (flowbench testing has not been done to determine any flow differences
due to MAF housings, but they look IDENTICAL in this regard).


Top row: 92-94 L27, 92/93 L67, 94/95 L67 (note modified throttle shafts on two of these)
Bottom row: 96+ L67, 95+ L36


Stacked foreground to background by size


Stacked by size from the side


The numbers

The 92-94 L27 throttle shaft is modified as is the 92/93 L67 in these pics. Just something
to compare to.

Bottom line is that we've found yet another reason why the 94/95 L67'* seem to be
posting very similar track numbers to S2 L67'*.
Look at your throttle plate diameters. Keep in mind you want laminar high-velocity flow in your delivery tube. My theory based on my experience says you might be hurt by a 3.5". Both of you should consider a 3" FWI or CAI.

Hans too, I hope. A 3.5" intake may very well hurt his performance.
