yeah i know i will need a tranny pretty soon i have 117k on my car so i know thats commin soon..

about your intake box what where the dementions on that because i'm trying to make one and it seems like the top of it would hit the hood when it came down? maybe not.. i also looked on my car where to bring a tubing up to feed the air box and that looks all good but on the battery side where you brought the other one up for the supercharger and the TB where did you bring it up through... right in fron of the batter did you just have to squeeze the pipe a little? let me know thanks

and by the way i'm gettin a scan tool off e-bay there are a few on there hopefully i'll get one for pretty cheap

The box does not hit the hood. My pics and dimensions are posted here somewhere, not sure. But you MUST use the same filter as me for this type of box to work for you. The box is attached to the filter.

It fits in there without distorting or misshaping the tube.


If someone tries to talk you into a FWI, don't do it. A FWI may be better in some situations, but the 92-99 fenders don't protect the filter from the elements like the 2000+ models. A well-designed CAI is the best solution for an everyday driver of the 92-99 vintage.

Gap your plugs at .055".

Hey bud, the radiator needs AIR to FLOW through it to cool the engine. That'* what the fan override was mentioned for. You can run a 100 degree thermostat, and the car will still hit 220 in park.

The reason it is hitting 220* still is because you fan turn on point is still set for a 195* t-stat. It might even run hotter in traffic with a 180* t-stat just because your cooling system can't keep up with the bigger temp difference between the fan turn on and the t-stat temp. Make a manual fan switch (takes about 10 min.) and you will never see 190* even in park again.

alright thanks llBlazin_llLo i'll try to get that switch made as soon as i can... and if i do put this switch in should i leave it on all the time? or just when the car is getting hot or wheni put it in park

i KNEW the car needed air in order for it to stay cool it was just weird because 1 it didn't do it while i was just sittingi in drive for a while and two because when it was in park and heated up i have never seen it that high since i have owned the car even sitting in traffic in st. louis'* 100 degree 90% humidity weather so thats why i got a little worried that i did somthing wrong when i put it in

i'll get the fan switch done and see what happends

In the meantime, turn on your AC. Both fans will run on high speed by default.
