If you want a FWI go to INTENSE and click on the Induction/Fuel System link. You can order one there.

And if you want a rice pipe, many places stock them as well.

Have you decided which way you are going?

I think he is implying that he was going to purchase a FWI from INTENSE, but is reconsidering due to communication issues (whether or not they actually exist is another thing).

what is the big deal? most of the fastest ssei'* have FWI'*. the rice pipe is a much cheaper, but ever so slightly less effective (provided you have heat shield, etc) alternative. your choice.
if you must talk to Todd, his business e-mail is ToddA at INTENSE-Racing dot com. he answered all my e-mails promptly.

well what I was saying is rouge (todd?) never got back to me after my last round of questions... its kinda a moot point now though as the money has been reappropriated to find another endavour.

but the good news is I am actually going to try and fab up a short ram this weekend. Nothing fancy, and the actual intake pipe I am using is a FREEBIE so I figured, what the hell. Ill keep yall posted.

Donor intake was originally for a late model Civic Si/RSX Type * if you were wondering.

OK quick question... I just read the 11 page rice pipe thread for the third time looking for coupler info. I see several mentions of (tight fitting) 3.5-3in couplers and 4-3in couplers, but my measurements show I need a coupler with 3.75 inside diameter on the throttle body side.

I wont mind if you tell me where I can buy a special one, but im doing this as cheap as possible fellas.

Very high quality products on this website. I have used them in the past, and I was completely satisfied.

I used a 3"-3.5" reducer from boostcontroller.com and had no problems stretching it over the '96 throttle body. The 4" reducer I originally bought was too big. Good luck and enjoy the whine.

You want cheap but effective, try PVC. And stick with 3" inside diameter and a 3.5" rubber coupler to the TB.

Check this out:

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...+tube&start=27

That'* when I had my '93. I noticed marked improvements after I did that, and I spent all of $10. Also, you don't want 3.5". You'll actually slow the flow. 3" will increase velocity.

Example: Turn on a water hose. Then plug the opening half-way, the velocity increases, the water moves faster. The same applies for the intake tube.
