Should fit.. I read the review posted about this intake system and it sounds like that person installed it on a supercharged series II just fine

However, there are ways to make this type of fenderwell intake for cheaper. Just my opinion though.

Bend your own pipe and throw a filter on it. Or buy pre bent tubing the angles you need and cut to fit. Throw a filter on the end and your done. He said MAKE lol. I dont like these cus you can get water in the engine. I would just get the Cold Air inductions CAI and call it a day.

Water was a concern but I live in North Texas so we dont get much rain. And you can just put a Air bypass valve on there to reduce the chance of water getting in your engine

I drive in MO. I dont want salt, water, dirt, ect.. to get into my engine. I had enough probs just running a K&N filter for a few years hate to think what would happen if the filter was in my fender. Filters stop some but not all debris and a performance filter stops even less hence the high flow volume. Do you really want stuff clogging your throttle body and gumming mass airflow sensor and making your car run like crap?

You also have to cut your fender a little for that install.

It's the JMB Fenderwell Kit. If you want to google that you can see how to install.

It says 98-2003 because that corresponds to Grand Prix years. 98-03 = 00-05 Montes
