First off... F*CK the losers that you go to school with.

Second... putting a new CAI in is very easy. Its pretty much unbolt the old one and bolt in the second.

Third... I have no idea. I dont know much about early 90's Rangers.

You will most likely have to build a custom one. The only thing offered from K&N and others is a filter for the stock box. But you might be able to use a new 4.0 CAI and retrofit it.

Also the vacuums lines can I believe be plugged.

Oh and tell the kids at school to F-OFF! Rangers Rule!

Found this

http://www.autoanything.com/air-intakes/volant.aspx

There is a version for the 1992 4.0L, Not sure if there is much of a different

EDIT:
Just did some more checking and looks like that it isn't available for the older vehicles, went to there website (Volant) and they don't have the 1992 listed there. Sorry.

The wires are no doubt an intake air temperature sensor. A proper fuel mixture require knowing what the air temp is. Air density changes with temperature. As long as the temp sensor remains where it is and you route the CAI ahead of it, you should be fine.

No no, it needs to remain in place and intact. If you take it out, your fuel mixture will be all f'd up.

I have seen people build intakes out of pvc piping. Just browse around your local Home Depot with a creative mind.

Can you throw up a picture of your box? and which wires/plugs you are referring too.

I would suggest going to Underdog and looking at the intake tube where you can buy the
added on filter. I don't know if that will help you at all. But I tried. Take out the Airbox Silencer, it gives it a nice purr in the higher RPM's.
