Default Cold air intake

Ok Ive been searching everywhere on the net, called a bunch of places and out of the 4 hours I spent searching, I only found one place on the net that carries cold air intake systems for a 94 Bonneville SSEi but when I messaged them about it they never responded. Was their system wrong and there isnt any out there for my SSEi or am I just having no luck finding one?

Get a rice pipe (intake pipe) from autozone it states that its for a Honda, but is mostly what everyone here uses. and go here for the air filter http://www.ajusa.com/details/index/5...p-on/0/0/0/0/1 choose the RX 4750.

You may also have to cut like 2 inches off of that intake pipe because it'* a little too long.

Try www.intense-racing.com.
They don't have a full kit for your car, but the tubing they sell is perfect. Order three feet of 3" diameter, and build on that. You can put your cone filter where the evap cannister is, and move the cannister up onto the core support.
That'll give you nice cold air from outside the engine bay.
If you want more detailed plans, PM me, and I'll run you all the way through the making and installation.

Ask willwren which filter to get, he uses one that has a hole for the IAT.

The cheapy aluminum intake from Autozone will be a slight improvement, but you'll be drawing in hot engine bay air, and these motor are very sensitive to intake temps.
I believe the name is Spectre, or some such. Just ask the guy at the counter for the cheap Honda intake. (BTW, don't use the filter that comes with it, they're trash, get a K&N)

A fenderwell intake like I described will give you more air, and cooler air, without the need for a heatshield in the engine bay. Expect gains to be noticeable, but not radical.
If you want real improvement, make your next purchase a high-flow catalytic, then a pulley.

While you're doing the intake, get yourself a 180* thermostat.

Hold on a second. This is a 94 L67, and actually has a larger TB than a S2 L67. The standard 3.5" FWI kits are the correct one, not the 3".

3" is for the L27 and 92/93 SSEi'*, as well as older 3800'*.

I wouldn't give up looks for performance any day of the week. I have a CAI with heat shield on the 95, and a FWI on the 93. Performance is remarkably different between them.

Ok I have no clue what you're talking about. L67? TB? L27? You're saying I need a 3.5" intake hose correct?

L67=supercharged 3800.
L27= n/a 3800 series 1
TB=throttle body

and yes you need the 3.5 inch tubing, or the kit that says "for 97 cars" from intense
