I think the intake changed in 96 when they started using OBD2. The only thing you cold do is take the air silencer out if it has one. An intake alone won't give you much power anyway.

Ram Air

Scroll down a bit: http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...cylinders.html or the second choice here: http://www.cadvision.com/blanchas/Ra...ufflermod.html (dont do the dryer ducting)

94 intakes are a square (2x2), and 95up are inline. They bolt up onto the head differently....meaning you'd have to change your head if you want to run a 95up intake on a 94engine.

Where is this intake for the 95up you're finding?

i bought the kit for the 95 on ebay for my 94. I had to cut one of the intake pipes and put it at a different angle and block off some of the holes in one of the pipes. really easy to make it work. I think the only thing i needed was another coupling and i made a little box to isolate the filter from the engine compartment.
