It actually looks quite restrictive. We have to remember that we have nearly twice the cubic inches of the cars that'* designed for. Your stock airbox probably flows better. Think of the size of the intake plenum (accordian hose) on your engine in comparison to that.

Bah...leave that stuff for the ricer boys and girls.

Gut the airbox for now. BUT if you are really interested in a Series II intake, contact salmanmann on BC here, he has a few pipes for sale. Jr's3800 has one and seems to like it in his 95SE

Yea, there is no way I was going to get it anyways. Looks a little cheaply made.

I remember using one of those at an old frat party as a beer bong when I was in college!
