Most people run a fenderwell intake...the cheapest thing you can do is make one yourself www.intense-racing.com has fenderwell intake kits and www.wbodystore.com has the JMB FWI thats supposed to be really good and you'd have to get the one for the bonneville and it will require a bit of modification.

Welcome aboard! Unfortunately no one makes a CAI or FWI for the 95-99 Rivs. However, many here have fabbed up their own, and it's not real difficult to do. And it's a LOT cheaper than buying aftermarket anyway. Spend some time reading, lots of info here. Post up some pics in the Members Rides forum too.

Yeah and the power potential is there. if moneys tight you could always just remove the baffle from the air box and drop in a KN filter and gain maybe 5 horse and hear the supercharger a little more...not the most noticeable mod but its free.

Almost everything you need for a FWI is available at your local Home Depot, etc for maybe $30, plus a cone filter.
