Default Intake Options?

I'm looking into an intake for my 3.5 because I get the feeling that the stock intake is pretty turbulant. Atleast a lot more than a true CAI tubing would be. I wanted maybe a fenderwell intake like is offered for the 2000+ Bonneville but there is a problem. 1. My throttle body intake size is 3" instead of 3.5" like the L67/L36 and my MAF sensor is inline.. There is an intake made specifically for the 3.5 in the INTRIGUE but, it'* routed to a spot int he engine bay where the H body is solid metal. I'd rather not cut into my engine bay sheet metal if I don't have to.

This is where my stock airbox usually goes:

The following are pictures of the "Intrigue" intake kit that littlehoov found. (thanks bud!) Do you think it would work? I can't tell if it would or not. I don't know enough about the differences between the W-Body and the H/G bodies..





Thanks! any brainstorming ideas would be awesome. I'm horrible at this sort of thing!

Looks like you did a great job on the custom intake install. Did you put some sort of rubber grommet between the pipe and the fender wall to isolate the pipe from the wall?
