thanks for the info. I was also doing some thinking on this, what about the sensors on the air filter intake, if you take that whole aparatus off will it affect the sensor codes or anything such?

IF YOU DISCONNECT THAT AIR SENSOR THAT GOES TO THE AIR BOX IT WILL NOT RUN PROPERLY AND WILL THROW A CHECK ENGINE CODE!! IT MAY TAKE TIME FOR IT TO DO THAT THOUGH. I JUST PUT AN ENGINE IN A 1993 BONNIE AND I COULD NOT GET IT TO RUN RIGHT>FOUND OUT THAT I FORGOT TO HOOK THAT SENSOR UP!! NOW IT RUNS GOOD

YOu don't need to go through all that crap!!!, Just spend a little extra money right off hand and purchase a HKS Super Flow Filter. It bolts right onto the end of our rubber housing, so you don't have to make any adjustments for the Air Sensor, It is what I have on mine, and if flows better than even a K&N, also the filter element is easier to clean and cheaper to repair.

I actually made a custom intake out of PVC piping a couple months ago for my 90 bonneville le. It works pretty well. I have had to reajustit a few times.the diameter of the piping is like 4" plus. It'* a monster. I belive all you have to do to keep the sensor from going crazy is make sure what eever you use for the filter is thick enough. I personally used several pairs of panty hose. You just have to break the sensor back in. Anyone correct me if there is a better way. Also you can curve the piping to directly outside the car if you want less restriction.

also drill a hole in the piping so you can put the sensor inside. dont want to forget that part.

if you look at Cold Air Intakes that GP owners can buy, you will notice that almost all of them come with a box, or heat shield. Look at store.clubgp.com or http://www.grandprixstore.com to get some ideas.

I'd recommend making your own, perhaps out of some PVC pipe. The hard part would be positioning the cone such that the hot air coming off the radiator wouldn't be sucked into the intake. You'll probably need to rig up some sort of sheet-metal barrier to accomplish this.

Let us know what you find out!

Cheers,
Jeff
