Hey guys, while I was bored at work today I was searching our system and I found that K&N is now making their FIPK 2 System for our cars. The part number is #57-2505-1. It costs $91.99. I ordered one in for tomorrow so I will let you know what it is like. If it is just like their other ones it will come with a 3 1/2" high grade molded plastic hose the K&N cone filter a cold air divider with rubber weather stripping to seal it off from the engine. (this is what all their other models have.) So I will post again and let you know what it actually looks like and what comes with the kit, But this sure beats the hell out of 181 dollars for a piece of metal tubing with one thin layer of black paint and a cone filter. You can find the part at your local autozone or go online to www.autozone.com and order it from there. i will let you know what it is like sometime tomorrow. Let me know what you think.

The part number #57-2505-1 is for a thunderbird alright but if you read the comments by K&N it says Not for SC model.
But even still let us know what its like.

I'd be interested to see if it comes with any sort of the intake pipe. (I'm seen pictures of the stock T/bird model that they've made for a while now, which is just the filter & clip-on shield). I currently have a 7" K&N in my '93 and a 5" S&B (Autophysics) in my '94. In both cases I made a straight heat/dust sheild out of alum. & topped it with a piece of pipe insulation to seal under the hood. Magnum Powers also now makes a powder coated heat shield with an MAF bracket for about $100.

Part number #57-2525-1 which is superceded by #57-2525-2 will work for our cars but carries a high price tag of $255.00. The tube has to be cut in one location for it to work.

I'd like to know if the tube is a 3.5" tube.

For 200 dollars, you could have someone fabricate you a custom tube, and have it dipped in chrome if you so choose.
