yeah well, most people are on a budget, im just gonna go with a custom cold air/short ram like injen, just make my own, and go with a AEM dry flow filter, or k&n. 100$ =D

Parts are from spectre sold at autozone, schmucks, all over I think this is what you need
8208 Universal modular kit
8698 90 degree elbow, or a 8791 90 degree elbow boot
9405 Maf adapter
8132 Cone filter

I think that covers it other then silicone couplers, and other accessories i think Spectre makes a heat shield also. Spectre Performance - Official Site like i said autozone, schucks, a lot of regular retailers sell this stuff. And its not a bad idea that after a while to upgrade the filter. Just my 2 cents

Shit...I used the stock airbox...put a K&N drop in filter in there so I didn't have to worry about the MAF issue...then I took a saw and gutted the entire bottom...then used a silicone reducer to a piece of metal pipe then a 90* eblow to the TB...done. Works awesome.

Well, just think of it this way. You have 3 options, and you can only pick two: Cheap, reliable, fast.. Your choice. Sometimes you have to pay to play. Just my $.02. GL with it though, hope it turns out good.:)

yeah just slapped a cone filter on the end of where the airbox used to be and removed the GM filer.. bang custom intake ahah! it just doesnt have the same smooth airflow as an aftermarket pipe does tho.


Muffler shops around here give away chunks of piping that they saw off, mabey I could build something from that and paint it flat black? or would that look stupid?

He said custom intake...all the airbox mod does it remove resonators and shortens the intake draw by what...six inches? It doesn't add anymore horsepower than stock...and if it does...maybe 1.

and what would the cheap flexible stuff at autozone give you? probably not a damn thing anyways. i cant stand it. if its because of money y u cant get a decent intake im sure an ebay one would be better then that flexible stuff

That not only sounds great but gives great throttle response!
