Just read ALL the posts. Maybe the V6 changed after '96 like the other cars. Anyway, JB has listed the part numbers.
Incidently, my airbox is drilled, so if water tries to get up my cold air feed which is at the grill beside the foglight, I think the car will sook the air in through the holes in my airbox 'cos that would be easier (path of least resistance and all that....).
Would I be correct in thinking this ???
Henry, the K&N kit is alright for you 16 valvers 'cos the filter sits in the gap you mention. On us old timer 8 valves, the filter sits behind the battery and is kept all lovely and warm. It's not even easy trying to route the cold air feed as the filter sits in such a daft place.
