Default Q: CAI intake to fit 1987-89?

I bought a BBK CAI and I can't get it to fit due to the strut bar. Does anyone know of a CAI that will fit an 89? I've seen strut bars that are higher profile but do not want to change this.

I think I am going to try the AEM from American Muscle. It looks like if I can rotate it down it will clear the bar.

You will need an air intake that bends downward at the throttle body.

Default Update

I got the AEM to fit! It took a little modifying but it fits and works great. I had to trim 1/8" from the top of the pipe and 1/4 in of the rubber off the filter. This allowed the room to angle the tube under the strut bar and fit the cone on as there is less space when angled into the bottom corner.

It's super solid without using the old MAF mounting bracket. Because of the new install angle if I want to use the bracket I will definitely need to modify it. However, it is super solid without the bracket so not sure if I will use or not.
