I think Corksport sells them (for a lot). And then of course it would come on any FSZE from an engine importer.

I had one years ago for my first 2.0 (bought it off of another guy in the Probe community). Was somewhat surprised to see that that the butterflies open up not onto a shorter runner path (as I'd assumed it would be), but to a resonance chamber.

::edit:: I always wondered at what the result of taking a dremil to it and opening up the end of the chamber to effectively make it a second intake pathway would have been.

probably ebay is your best bet, but you gotta be careful that it is indeed a FSZE not just a FSDE intake

You'll never get the full power from the FSZE intake because the ECU doesn't have a connector for it.. (I forget exactly what it's called).
Unless you have the J-Spec ECU, which is that case you'd want the whole FSZE motor, you're better off doing just a port and polish on the FSDE intake manifold.

Window switches can be used instead. Not terribly hard to do it.

As I say tho, the 2.0's ZE intake is nothing like the 2.5's. The butterflies do not open up to another runner path. They dead-end into a resonance chamber. I cannot speak to gains from the FSZE IM, it has been many years since I've had first hand experience with it.

For the money just get custom ground cams if you haven't already. I'd be willing to bet $$$ that you'd see massively better gains.
