It looks nice but for the $ I'd rather do INTENSE or ZZP tubing. You would save some $ and it would look just as good if not better.

Cars that have dogbones (i.e. W-body) will flex just as much as H-body'*. I'd do 3.5" tubing so you don't need a reducer and if I was going to use a reducer I'd use 4" tubing not 3".

I met with Justin tonight...he'* a good guy that does excellent work. He told me that everyone of these he makes will be a custom job, so we're going to get exactly what we want. He showed me some samples of his work and to my untrained eye it looks terrific! He'* also got a huge selection of colors (upwards of 40) that the intake pipe can be powdercoated in.

The intake pipe is going to be a 3-1/2 in. pipe that'll be cut and welded to achieve the needed bends. Looks like he'* also going to provide a bracket to hold the PCM in place as well. He fabbed one up for me and it'* a lot cleaner looking and more secure than what I had before.

Since he'* doing these as custom jobs, he'll be able to drill a hole for the IAT in the stock location or down closer to where the filter will be.

It'* HIGHLY recommended that you have a solid motor mount in place before installing one of these intakes. He'* going to make one for me and we'll install it without securely mounting it to anything. A little driving and some torue braking should reveal if this will work or if it will hit something. If so, some kind of mount will need to be created for it. Since the intake pipe will be "floating" this will allow for some movement, so it'* possible that if you have a stock mount in good condition you might be ok with it. My stock mount was pretty torn up so putting mine back in to test wouldn't do much good.

I asked him about pricing and he estimated that it would run around the same price as the one for the Regal, possibly a little cheaper. I got the impression that turn around time on one of this is probably going to be about a week; remember, these aren't made until you place your order.

Now that I've seen his work and had a chance to talk to him, I'm even more excited about this. That'* all I can think of right now, but if you have questions let me know.

Oh, forgot the most important part; I've got some pictures on page 3 of my CarDomain site which can be found here.

I've got a 1990 LE in Fort Smith AR if he wants to do an older one.

Not at this time. On the regal that whole section is open whereas on the bonnevilles there are two holes. The larger of the holes is the one that all the FWIs are being run through.

The one he makes for me we're going to install without any kind of support so that it "floats". If it causes some tapping or we're not comfortable with how secure it is then he'll look at creating some kind of plate for it. He wants to try it this way first to allow for possibile use by people without a solid motor mount.

yeah, I struggled between the chrome-look and the shiny blue and told him today to go with the blue. I think it will pop even more once I get some chrome looking exhaust in there and it'* almost a perfect match for the valve cover.

We talked about how the PCM is stock in the airbox and he made up a bracket for me. Since he took measurements for the bracket I'm going to presume that he'll include one with any orders for Bonnevilles. I do kind of miss that yellow wire, I got lots of comments on it
