Tubing doesn't take much overhead to stock. And while the general public may not be aware, I've had alot of offline requests for help locating suitable tubing for the 92/93 SSEi'* and 92-94 L27'*.

It won't move as fast as the S2, but my gut tells me it'll sell. Make sure there'* a disclaimer on the page noting the need for a 3" flange on the filter. And you'll need to sell the aluminum sleeves for both ends also Todd. I can give you the dimensions of the TB'* if you want to throw a reducer at it.

I'd be curious to see you buy just enough materials for 5 FWI'* and see how long they take to move.

Edit.....those converting from a CAI can cut sleeves off their old rice-pipes. Or simply buy short 3" sections from an exhaust shop.

Vince, you need their traditional 3.5".

The 94/95 L67 is the same size TB as the S2 L67 (actually slightly larger).
