Default INTENSE FWI on a Series One L67

I figure it will work if I get a windsheild fluid bottle from a 92-95 SE model.

I should just be able to mount the evaporator box next to it right?

any other issues I might run into?

Hans, in your climate, it'* not a good idea. The 92-99 fender design doesn't shield the filter like the 2000 and newer design.

I'll have to pull the evap canister to see what I am working with. As it stands right now the rice pipe heats up bad in traffic bad, up to 220*, I put the stock airbox back on and it stays around 185 even in traffic. that tells me the metal pipe has to go.

I'll have to see if I cant engineer some protection for the filter.

And what about my climate? are we worried about snow getting in the fender and blocking the filter?

Dust? yeah going to get nailed wherever the filter is.

Rain? I live in a desert


Once snow hits the car will probably be back to the stock pulley and intake box.

The 2000 and newer cars (that the FWI was designed for) have a very well sheilded skirt area.

Dust, snow, moisture, and grime will all hit you bad.

Build a CAI.

I looked at the FWI possibilties on my 93 and on the 97....i am going to build a much better CAI duct fed myself..i have all winter to design something.....
nice thing about this RX-4750..the IAT hole already in the filter..makes much more sense..

Heres my ideas as follows...I am going to shop around for a hose similar to intenses..possibly something from work..set it up in a manner were it will not flex..aka bolted down heatshield..air box..possibly heat wrap it with something from AEM....at the track when i remove my headlight..the filter will be right in path of air flow..

I do notice on my 97 there seems to be quite a lot of holes between the fender and the engine bay.. may have to look into heatshielding that whole area
