Default New air filters on Ebay

I have seen the CAI unit on at ADTR that everyone talks about. There are several people on E-Bay selling what seems to be the same type setup for about 1/2 the price. ADTR has to custome make everything and so do the guys on e-bay. I dont want a cheap rip off. The ones on E-Bay are $65, ADTFR is $150.

I have seen those too. Notice that the air filter included is "like a K&N", but not specifically a K&N. Also look at other auctions by that member. These include CAI'* for Grand Prix'*, but the photo is the same. I can't say for sure, but I suspect that both are the same part. I.E. the ones for sale are not specifically designed for the Bonevilles.

You could always ask the seller a question and request specs on the air filter and whether the pipe is specific to a particular model or not.

p.*. Do you have a link for one of these, in case we are talking about two different sellers here?

One of uor members (or two) bought this unit. It doesn't reach all the way to the corner with the headlight. Probably would on a GP, but not a good fit for the Bonneville. You want this 'sucker' to be as close as possible to the front of the car, or you'll pick up stray heated air from the back side of the radiator. I'd advise against this unit strongly. Hector'* intake at ADTR is a confirmed high-quality fit in a Series 2, and will be confirmed for Series 1 this weekend.

Thanks Willwren, good advice and exactly what I wanted to know. I will get it from Hector. I think the racing red pipes will look nice.
1) Does water get into the cone filter? In Upstate NY we get alot of ice and lots of snow, what keeps the filter from getting wet, then frozen?
2) Does the filter just hang there supported by the engine connection, or does the cone get supported at the filter end?
3) I hear the car will idle alot rougher when I make the change, does it?
4) Hey, I put 37 watt Nokya fog lamps in my 2002 SSEI fog lamps and it melted the plastic lenses. I want fog lamps to match my SilverStar head lamps.
Your thoughts Willwren?

1) It just rained here in Souther California for 3 days. I put 300 miles on my car in those three days (running and building materials for about 5 ADTR projects.) I have also had this intake on my car for well over a year. I have never ever had water in the filter or anywhere near it.

2) The filter is supported by silicon that is meant for turbos so it is super tough and can withstand 700 degress F. I dont think the guys on eBay use that in any way, shape, or form. Also the guys on eBay dont give you the choice of IAT location, we do and because we do them all by hand, we can do that. But we will have a heat sheild box later and the intake will be sealed inside and supported even more.

3) When you install the filter, I recommend just disconnect the battery for like 10 min, then reconnect and that will reset the computer and the computer will relearn with the new intake. The computer will basically adjust to your mods. The people who have rough idles usually have dirty Throttle Bodies, or have done something wrong or actually just attach a K&N to the accordian tubing which is alot of turbulance.

Actually our intake is $145 shipped to your door.

Hope that answer all your questions. If you have anymore you can reach me with the email address below.

I'm building a heat shield as soon as I get the intake later this week/weekend. It will add support to the intake pipe. I don't know if it will fit the series 2 or not. We'll find out soon enough. My foglamps are glass lenses. I'd find a way to convert yours if you're going to keep running hot lamps!

I havent had much time to work on the website so there really is not exhaust, chip or anything for Bonneville'* on there. Websites take alot of time to build and I do it by hand and it'* all me. Right now we are developing tons of parts for Bonneville'* and L36'* in general, just we lack cores and cars to test on. I dont have the Bonneville chips on the website or anything yet. I am just going to make a Bonneville Only Web store this weekend probably and it will just be easier for everyone, even me.

I don't know about the 96 N/A Jet chip. I dont think Jet makes one. I called today but they were closed so tomorrow I will get a definite answer or not. What exactly do you want to do to your car? Or what do you want. We are usually willing to make custom stuff if you request it.

Ok I just have to put my blab in. The e-bay stuff is a waste of money. It is a short pipe used on a ton of other cars not just the GP and it is ok for a GP but it is way off for a Bonneville.

Remember cheap buys you cheap stuff.
