Default Series I SC Cold Air Intake

Hello all.

My car is not a Pontiac Bonneville. It'* a Buick Riviera. From 1987 specifically. I recently installed a Series I SC engine and transmission, but in the process, the stock air assembly got messed up, and well, I can't quite get the rubber piece which connects the throttle body and the air box. So I figured I might as well install a cold air intake and take out the stock assembly.

I've seen some of your posts about constructing a home-made intake since no manufacturer makes a CAI for the Series I SC. This seems like the best route to go, rather than buying some cheap one off eBay, but I cannot seem to find any specific information regarding this. I'd like to know what parts are necessary and where these parts can be purchased.

I keep pictures of my Riviera on my website. A specific picture which shows my dilema is available. If I'm not mistaken, at least one of the members here has seen this car at some time.

thats pretty neat....Honestly I'd just say grab some hose from home depot and connect the stock airbox if you want. The pic is a zoomed in pretty close but it doesn't look like you have much room for the usual home-made CAI.

I have the necessary tools to modify the CAI. The stock airbox takes more room than what that picture leads you to believe, so I won't have any problem getting it to fit. I just need to know which parts and where I can get them. I constantly read about some K&N air filter that is used on some members' cars.

The most popular has been the K&N RX-4750 ever since Allmachtige and I did test fits.

It gives you a broad flat base to mount to, provides an IAT hole (you'll need to enlarge it) and has a TON of surface area.

It'* a round tip, oval base.

Hey I think you should be able to use the rice pipe thats stickied in the performance section. Best thing I think you would be able to do is remove the stock airbox and then use that rice pipe backwards and it should work out great.
