You have it easier than I did. I have the double washer tank for the headlamp washers.

You have much more room than my 93. The exact same amount as any SE or SLE out there.

Why would you think it'* tight when there are so many here?

I just made a post about 95'* ELC compressor mount. I think your'* is a little better than my 92 allowing even more room for an intake pipe. I think you're fine.

i've just read in some posts about having to move things that might be mounted in the way. I didn't think that there was anything in the way but what better way to find out then ask those who have done it!

That'* because you didn't give the end that goes into the TB a little shave on one edge to angle it better.

I did this on my 95 Ei and it cleared by an inch or two. Was perfect!

I cut my reducer at an angle, and have the better angle of the ADTR pipe, but the 92 and 93 compressor location still is too close. Closer than the 94/95 anyway.

I was looking at that pic and wondered what was different between that and mine. And of course, the washer bottle, as Bill said. I got rid of my double washer bottle in 'Runner 1 to allow more room for a CAI. You should have some fun making an intake to fit that corner.

Gotta love that stock 'triple-resonated' intake

yea, whats the point of the resonating chambers in the stock setup? i can't think of any reason for them... But i'm sure some engineer thought they would be great!
