Default Cold air intake for 89

I was just wondering if there were currently any cai systems out there for the 89 bonnevilles. Also if not, would pulling off the airbox and running a cone filter setup help at all?

Go up to Techinfo, Tech know-how. Big article on these mods and options. Should cover it pretty well!

Will...Hector...Jr? someone

What is the difference between a CAI and the "in progress" ADTR Intakes for older 3800s and Series I'*

This has more then likely been covered somewhere else...but thought I'd ask again!

And if cold air intakes are available for 87-91'* what is the advantages/disadvantages to ADTR'* parts?

Or am I totally off the wall :P ?

I made my own intake, and it works great.
its on my site [new projects page]
They are currently testing to see if the intake from ADTR will work on the series I engine

A CAI and an Intake are two totally different parts. The cone filter of a custom intake is shrouded by the CAI. Go look at Thrasher. THAT'* a CAI. A tube with a cone is an intake.

I'll have my own "Pontiac" Ram Air intake on my Series I this spring! I could probably make it work on just about ANY ENGINE TOO!

Eventually I will. Right now working on just the Ram Air to compliment my stock air box! In time, as my store grows, I will even get into Custom made Hoods (Just found a manufacturer).
