Default air intake

im thinking about upgrading my air intake. right now its just the stock k/n (cause there'* a k/n sticker on the box and the square is red, and i've been using the sprays to revive every 2yrs) the only thing is, i dunno how to go about it without using household plumbing stuff. i mean my car looks ghetto rigged with the grills from the start, but on the other hand, i dont open my hood at shows anyways. decisions, decisions.

Intense racing and ZZ performance both sell intake hose. I think it'* about $10 a foot or so. A few clamps and your all set.

W bodies aren't quite that easy guys. A W body has no room to stuff a hose and be happy. The only way into the fender is small and requires a nearly 90 degree angle.

A wizair may be your easiest solution.

ive seen guys put thin metal piping and insulate it. (x) degrees plus tap/die a hole for whatever that plug is thats on the intake hose...

i dunno im not going to focus on that now cause my trans is about to **** the bed after i spent $30 on fluids for that alone. plus i gotta worry about the paint. im so pissed right now i can roll a honda over.
