PEM'* would be a wise investment, and do the pulley and PCM at the same time.

Lose the ricerzone filter. It'* probably restricting flow, and many of them have been proven to hold water. Sheild that filter from engine bay heat. The hot air is negating the intake'* benefits. A gutted airbox with K&N drop-in would be better than your exposed setup. And it'll increase your chances for KR by pulling in pre-heated air before the supercharger.

A FWI from INTENSE is probably your best option, but you'll want to do some custom fabrication inside the fender to protect the filter from road debris and slime. That area is more exposed on the 92-99 than the 2000 and newer.

If you ever plan to do rockers or a cam, consider headers now, or you'll have to try to sell your PEM'* later and buy headers.

No offence intended here, but I've been over this in the past. The picture on my tag line is old and not updated. The filter I'm using does not hold water, I checked it myself. And I have shielded it.



Ok, so PEMs will be my next mod, I hope to get that within a few months. Will those bolt on to my current system? Or will I have to make changes to my pipes?

They will bolt right up provided the cores came from a 97 Bonneville.

No offense taken, and none intended. We have a bad experience in general with low-quality knock-off filters, and this probably won't be the last time you hear it.

www.ajusa.com has great prices on good quality filters, and I strongly encourage you to do so. That filter may actually be hurting you more than it'* helping, and we can't vouch for it'* ability to filter effectively.
