I wouldn't suggest it. The filter will be much more exposed to the elements than on a 2000 or newer.

You will also need a washer fluid bottle out of an SE/SLE, the SSEi one has the secondary tank for the headlight sprayers.

Like Bill said, pull the EVAP canister out of its little bucket, secure it to the frameish stuff behind the headlight, filter goes down that nice hole.

And make sure you have more than enough tubing, it has to bend a bit to get over the top of the ELC compressor.

Click on the second "pics" link in my sig, there are pics of it there.
