Check out MPD for hoods, I have one and Crazyguy03 has one as well and they are great for heat release and Cold Air (RAM AIR). Here's the link.... http://www.mpd1.com

Anyone know the actual flow rate on siemens 60lb injectors? I have seen anywhere 60-65, that is big difference. I used 62 in my tune...

@  jwguinn : (19 September 2017 - 01:35 AM)

@  jwguinn : (18 September 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Anyone know the part number or where to get a replacement for the short very curved vacuum line that connects to the throttle body mine is split where it connects...?

@  EnderDRM : (13 September 2017 - 12:04 AM)

So the headers and 3" exhaust is on. Sounds pretty good.

I'm looking for regal "GSX" emblems. Anyone have any for sale? I am looking for the OEM SLP GSX chrome emblems. Thanks

@  EnderDRM : (30 August 2017 - 09:27 PM)

Hi all, I thought I would get the plugs replaced while the headers are being installed. Recomendations for plugs?

Speedy daddy is the default cheap. I have been running pacesetters for 10 years and with the exception of one issue have had no problems.

@  scottydoggs98 : (22 August 2017 - 02:02 AM)

every now and again you get a poorily built cross over pipe and they dont fit right. only issue with them

@  scottydoggs98 : (22 August 2017 - 02:02 AM)

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 :)
