Default Relocation PCM in '96

I'm about to put the CAI from the '89 in the '96. What should I do about the PCM? Should I just try to go around it? I mean, I could just have it under the intake but it wouldn't be secured down...is that unsafe? The PCM tray from intense doesn't work on the '96 either, so I'm running out of ideas.

Also, whats that aluminum stuff you guys all make heat shields out of? Where do you get it?

you could get a 97+ PCM box and it will hold just like the factory. CFoote just did the 97+ PCM box upgrade this weekend and it bolted in with no problems

Yup, when I went down to Boostys place and did my rice pipe on the '96 he had one of those for me also......worked out awsome!!!

I'd suggest a 97 pcm cover. It actually is only held in with a couple of plastic push pins. Very easy to install, leaves your pcm in almost the same location (slightly closer to fender and gets that silly wing off your pcm cover.
