Can't seem to find an answer anywhere to this, so I'll ask here. If a cold air intake, such as this: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , says it'll fit into a 1995 Caprice and Impala, wouldn't it fit into a 92 RMW even though it's not listed?

Because 91-93 and 94-96 have totally different engines

Crap... I meant 95 RMW. My phone's autocorrect has been acting really stupid since the last iOS update.
So, will a 95-96 CAI fit onto a 95 RMW?

God, I really hate posting on mobile sometimes Evil or Very Mad

Yes, same engines

RMW isn't listed because Nobody in their right mind would modify a Buick

I wouldn't bother with that, unless my car had no intake and I got it for free.

I know K&N has their rabid fanbase and their marketing department is great at boosting shareholder value by up to 18 horsepower, but if you check around and do some more homework in most cases removing the stock air intake and resonators actually slightly reduces engine performance.

It if has the LT1 motor found in most 94-96 it will work. The 91-93 had the older conventional small block Chevy motors with throttle body on top of the conventional manifold. The LT1 uses an upper plenum, that faces the front of the motor. There are very few compatible parts between the two motors.
