Thrasher did contact me early on about wanting to use my car to build the CAI kit, but I never heard from them. That'* OK though, I built a FWI before they contacted me and never really wanted to change to a CAI anyway. I guess I'm partial to FWI - they're cheaper and much more effective!

For proper fitment on a 1992-1995 you will need to use a 1996-1999 windshield washer fluid tank, and on 96-99'* you will need a PCM tray to mount the PCM in as the PCM * right where the box wants to go.

However, rather than stating that it "should be good for 10-15 hp", they should do a comparison on a dyno where the only variable is the intake. That way, they can make a fact based claim.
Nothing is less restrictive than a properly built FWI.
I don't have a problem with a statement like this(see my signature to see what type I have) but as an engineer, I have major heartburn over statements such as "should mean 10-15hp". That'* pure puffery and needs to be backed up with a simple dyno run proving it. Even the statement "nothing is less restrictive than a properly built FWI" means nothing without numbers to back it up.
