I need help finding an intake that will fit in my 1992 sse with dual tanks. I would really appreciate some specifics and links because I am lost on what I should do.

make your own and trial by error. dont rush the process. autozone sells a pipe that is just about right for our cars.

If you can't find one of those that Twist mentioned, PVC will do until you find the right one. I used a 45* to a 22* then about 4" of straight pipe, all 3". It'* not pretty, but here it is. The only problem I had was trying to get by that air compressor. It cost me a grand total of $18 for everything (except the filter, which needs to be replaced) :

As i stated in your other thread, the one from autozone will work. You just need to cut it to fit your application.

Got any pics of it working? It sure didn't look like it would to me...

Make sure you stay with 3" at the most.
