Default Intense FWI question

I'm ready to buy another FWI. Intense sells the GP kit for $99 and $169 for the Bonne'*. I was wondering if the Intense 3.5" FWI tube will fit over the TB? I can't see spending the extra $69 for the TB coupler if the hose will fit over the TB. Thanks............

Good luck finding somewhere that sells a 4" coupler. I have been very hard pressed -the best I can find is 3.5" flexible radiator hose from a Semi shop here in town.

I encourage you to look as I would love to find one somewhere -they aren't cheap, but I would be willing to bet we could find somewhere that sells them for under $25.

Great link! So, I'll need the 3.75" to 3.5 coupler, then use a 3.5" sleeve for the coupler to the Intense FWI then, right?

Would sound right to me. Would seem like a piece of 1/8th x 3" would work

Why restrict your airflow when you are aiming for more?

If I were doing this...I'd get the 4" kit and ensure there'* never a starvation situation holding me back from making power.

What'* the slogan... "Don't make excuses...make power"

The 3.5 is adequate and what I still run. The GP kits are 180 as well for most models, we have a 99 kit for the 04 model GP that does not require the coupler, tray and other things, etc...
