If you got a replacement filter, just slide it in place of the old one and seal the baox back up.

will the pipes sold on ebay for 92-99 bonne'* work on my '89? Like the one DeeGee mentioned here?

I know it includes a crappy air filter, but If I use that thing for 15,000 miles, then it will have paid for itself.. and by the time I put 15,000 miles on my bonne, I will have a job, and be able to pay for a $50 K&N element.

i got my k&n in the mail today. unfortunately, the stock air filter in my car is a screen and the k&n that i was sent is cylindric (like the one in the picture of willwren'* car). therefore, i cannot just slide the new filter in the car and seal the case back up. was i sent the wrong filter or what?


thanks!

Nope, you got a RX-4750. If you look in will'* sig pic you can see he has an intake tube which you'll need to to use that filter.

thanks for the reply. i got the intake tube as well. should i just take off the entire old airbox and leave the new filter out in the open? will that hurt anything? the new pipe i got is pretty long anyway and won't really fit with the current configuration.

thats the new filter i got. so i guess i'll just take the entire old airbox off and leave the filter out in the open. does the front of the airbox (the part right behind the headlight that has an airhole coming from somewhere else) serve any real purpose?

Does anyone think this would fit on a 93SSEI?

It help keeps most of the heat outside the airbox as the radiator hose is right smack beside it.. you'll want a box ASAP for you CAI.. right now it'* HAI (hot air intake when your engine is up to temp )
