Guys, you really need to pay attention to what'* under your hood. YOU need a 3.5" off the shelf. Click on the link and see the TB diameters I posted on the previous page. The 3.5" FWI from INTENSE is a direct swap to the L36. We're talking about 3" tubing ONLY FOR THE 92-93 L67 and 92-94 L27.

Not jumping your ****. But there'* alot of confusion in this topic. You're not the first to jump on this, and I understand. An INTENSE FWI is a good thing to jump on. The good news is that they always had you covered.

In retrospect, I probably wouldve ordered 3 inch tubing and based my intake around that instead of 3.5 inch. I dont think id ever outflow it, and 3 inch tubing might actually fit directly onto the TB as opposed to the setup I have now. The 3.5 inch tubing wouldnt come close to fittin my TB, its pretty small. About as small as the number of folks who would want a FWI for their Intrigue, maybe enough to use two hands.

So.. 3" tubing with some sort of adapter wouldn't be better than 3.5" tubing for an L36 with his mods?

L36'* across the board seem to respond well to this as a first mod.

The TB is larger to begin with, so you don't have the transition the smaller TB would. The L36 also has lighter internal parts, so it rev'* quicker, and to a higher rpm. That means it breathes more at the top end.

Yes, Yes!
Count me in for one. If we get enough interest, a group by might be the way to go.
We can use our RX4750, right?

Can we get some pricing together on a kit? OOH! I can imagine the INTENSE decal on my back window already!
