Default COLD AIR INTAKE

I installed the cold air intake myself and it was easy until I hooked up the k&n conne through the box to the mas air flow sensor, i had to go buy a 4" to 3.5" coupler and put that between the mass air flow sensor and the air filter. then just hook the hose from the throttle body to the mass air fow sensor and I was done. The box is self explanatory with its instructions. This does work for a 3.9 liter 2006 to 2008 monte carlo. You just need a coupler by spectre or some other manufacturer. I get a smooth ride when stepping on the acceleration and its a little quicker and sounds a little better. I like it and it looks great under the hood.

Here is the link for the pictures.

I GOT MY INTAKE FROM MPD INC AND IT TOOK TWO WEEKS TO BE DELIVERED AND IT WAS $300 and the spectre coupler was $12.00 dollars, when i pulled the cheap kit offmy intake it was really warm, and when i touch the air box aluminum side much cooler, don't buy the cheap kit from ebay. if i didn't do this buy the summer my computer for my car was exposed to too much heat and i was drawing too much heat into my air intake too. the new and improved way, truley a cold air intake and its insulate on the inside of the box on all three sides except th lid so this helps make it keep cool as well. Great product 3.9 liter montes you can do it, and it was a fun weekend afternoon project.

I just have an open conical (spelling) filter on mine, an eBay special that I'll probably fab a box up for it myself. We'll see though...At first the filter pointed in toward the motor, (like on couch's car, we have the same intake), and I didn't like that so I switched the filter and fittings to the other end of the tube and it is pointing out now, which is better for the filter anyway. It does its job. )

rysz34... look at my website, you can pretty much copy my FWI intake design cause our engine bays are the same design.

Hey mavrickf1613, Im thinking of getting this intake in a couple of weeks. How do you like it so far? Any problems that have come up since you installed it? Thanks for any info you can send my way.

I like this intake alot, better throttle response and it does make the air cooler because the inside of the box is insulated and I have had no problems, I raced at the drag strip and my Intake is all intact, I have had no problems, This isn't a hard kit to install either, Just remember if you install this on a 3.9 engine you will need a 4 inch to 3.5 inch coupler to connect the air filter to the mass air flow sensor.

I like it and recommend it
