I haven't gotten anything from you yet Willwren. Hopefully tomorrow. I have been really really busy this weekend and this week as well, tomorrow I have to also take my 396 BBC to the machine shop to get cleaned up and magnafluxed. I will send you an email or message when everthing gets sent out to you this week. We are developing parts for 3 cars at the same time and I am doing my own projects plus the ADTR cars as well... So yeah, trying to fit in as much as I can. And we will be making a heat shield for the Bonneville'* just a little later, depends if people buy the intake or not since we are pre-producing some, so I want to see if it'* worth the R&D time we put into it or not.

I'll be making one for your intake when it gets here.....rather quickly. I can send Dims for the 92-95 if you want. I don't mind being leveraged!

hey as anyone trie to see if any of the intake of the grandprix store would work for any of the bonneville years. It would be interesting to see if maybe a little modification would make them fit real nice. I think some of them come with air boxes. Just a thought!!

I've seen the Thrasher unit, and it won't fit.....AND I'd hate to butcher such a pretty and expensive box. That won't stop me from COPYING them, though. I've got some pretty solid fabrication experience.....gonna be a no-brainer. I doubt a top will be necessary, as long as the air pressure within the shielded area is greater than that of the engine bay. I'm considering making an open-top box for now....maybe. Hell I won't really know til I build it!

I"ll have to agree with Will.. for once... that butchering another CAI from GP isn't the greatest idea.. if you're going to customize one.. why not just go out and get the parts yourself.. it'll save you a lot more money that way, then buying one that'* already made just to frenkenstein the bi-atch....

Way ahead of you on the Grand Prix'*. My neighbor has a 98 Grand Prix GT so I have to see how much shorter the pipe has to be cut because the Grand Prix'* have an angle at each corner of the engine compartment. Plus the heat shield for their cars will be different.

As for a 2000+ Bonneville'*, I am going to go to my other neighbor down the street who has a newer SSEi.... I think his car needs an exhaust system. :P

So is there anyone in SoCal with a 92-99 Bonneville that would like to get a free exhaust system from ADTR? I can't really use my car since I hacked off the bolt up flange to my cat since I really did not care at the time. And like I am going to keep it there anyways.....

What kind of materials are you going to buy to fabricate this cold air box will? What do you have in mind?

Depends, if you want it fancy I could do stainless steel and polish it after its all welded together or aluminum. It'* all a matter of what price you wish to pay. And since most people dont want to pay much, neither of those will most likely be used. Unless it'* custom made.
