What's the deal with these air intakes? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

However, on the 96-2000+ gutting it can help a lot.
actually Pete the Airbox on the 95 is similar to the 96+...so gutting may give you some gain


if you do a Rice Pipe then you need a good heatshiled
Ahhh, right. I'm thinking about my Series 1 airbox and how retarded it is.
So...should I do the airbox or rice pipe? What do you think? And in looking, do all PCM'* have covers? I know mine doesn't.

I have a pipe/filter that will fit that engine I can sell to you if you want.

i bought my intake from e-bay, nd i personally it fits my 96 perfectly, but i think it might be because the space under my hood is slightly more limited than a 97+, but with a K&N filter i really cant get too much longer without hitting anything...im not sure if the vendor i bought from deals on e-bay anymore since the intakes i see on there are different from mine...but i have to say that i only paid about 35 bucks with shipping so i was pleased...

Too close to the radiator. The bend and length should put your filter where the PCM is mounted. That intake is far too short.

Your engine bay space is IDENTICAL to that of any car here from 1987 to 1999. They are all identical in underhood dimensions to every last bolt hole.

My 95 Bonne has a 01 GP 3800 engine installed. Pretty much the same? Patrick mentioned that there were a few differences. When I go to modify the air intake, I do it the same as II've read here...correct?

Soryy for the simple question. I am 42 and just starting to learn about these puppies!

There is no difference in motors or position/location. It'* a piece of cake. Gather your components, then propose a PA mini-meet. The work will get done fast.
