You are making me do things....I need to spend time on stupid car stuff

@  Marchi1 : (12 July 2017 - 02:35 AM)

How is everyone doing tonight?

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:52 PM)

some of the 99 pcms will work take a 01 bin, those you can change the vin # ive found.

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:50 PM)

the vin is kept in the pcm, you cant change the vin @ with dhp on 01 up cars, so if you use a the cars pcm with dhp it will retain the cars vin#. so if you flash a new bin to the pcm, its vin stays put.

@  RacingRegal36 : (08 July 2017 - 11:05 PM)

i need a bin that will work with this vin: 1g4cu541914206781

ISS got shortened during install somehow and had to lengthen back to size.

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:15 AM)

...if I am able to bolt down both ends with little resistance than I would imagine it is properly seated?

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:14 AM)

Swapped rack and pinion, not sure if ISS is seated.

On the air tube between the airbox, and the entrance to the supercharger, there are 2 plastic 'chambers' attached- one above, and below...what are their function, and can they be removed, and plugged without anything going wrong ?

 

Cheers !

Been a while since I looked at a stock intake.  I'm thinking they are "mufflers" to silence the sound of the intake.  Nice quiet Buick, right?

so you got a 97 or a 98 dont ya? only 2 years that have that lame set up.

 

  pretty sure those are to catch and hold water should you get into deep water, you know before you start eating the water.

 

be best to just rip that stock air box out, up grade to a 01 up box or just slap on a open cone diy set up.

They're tumors.  

 

The LS trucks have similar things.  It's at least partly to cancel out the intake noise - which really isn't much of a problem.

I cut them off at the neck, filed them flat, and epoxied flat plastic to them. Filed them round, and re-installed- and no difference at all in sound. Guess any water that gets in will hydrate my supercharger :)
