There'* a much better system in the works as we speak. Doesn't involve crappy sheetmetal Should work and look alot better.

You know how it goes. Anything that comes out of my 'Bonneville Brainstorm' shop must be functional and visually appealing before introduction. I'm very close. Just waiting for a couple last pieces. Trust me, I'm as anxious as you are.

The system will benefit you ONLY with a modified stock airbox with replacement K&N, or with an aftermarket intake with heatshield or CAI. Open-element cones will not benefit from this.

It will also supply auxiliary cooling to the SC or the upper intake of a NA car.

See instead of getting a collective opinion on this, and other members' ideas, he'd rather do it on his own, and not have the best possible finished prodcut.

Other members have had input. I've been working on this idea for about 6 months now.

I'm just finally happy with it, and am going ahead with assembly.

Not sure how this will work on an SE or SLE. It WILL work on an SSEi and SSE. It'* pretty specific to the 92-95 SSE and SSEi with the narrower fogs, and MIGHT work on the 96-99 SSE and SSEi.

This isn't going to be for the light-duty fabricator. There is some custom work involved, and about 50 to 60 dollars invested.
