Red face Yet another intake thread

I got the call I'd been waiting 7 months for, my oil consumption problem is set to be fixed this coming monday. The reason this is in the intake section, is because with the warranty work being done, i couldn't do any of the fun stuff like intake and tune, because it'd *probably* void the power-train warranty. With this getting fixed, i'm starting to look into getting a diablo tuner, exhaust, and some kind of intake. Since I'm always hearing good things about FWI's, I figure that's the way i'm gonna go since i can build it myself, and put more money toward the other 2. I've been looking at a bunch of different designs and have settled on this.











I found it on clubgp along with a really good "how-to".

ClubGP Message Forum troubleshooting

It looks great (imo) for not being professionally made, and sounds to me like it performs really well to. It is an almost 7 year old thread that's 10 pages long, but from what i've read so far, everyone likes


Anyone see any flaws, or set-backs with recreating this on an LS4 monte as opposed to a grand prix?

That better be ABS plastic.

We have no problems with you posting the how-to link. Or you can make your own HOW-To

Problems..... I can't picture in my head right now how the TB and sensors are. Been away from my Dad's LS4 for too long.

Also, Intake shouldn't void warranty unless they can PROVE that it would be the cause of the oil leak. Which it can't be, since it's DOD lol

That's a pretty interesting rig, but looks at least on a 3800 it would work well.

I find it interesting that it has a piece to sleeve over the real tube moving the air. I suppose that increases isolation from the engine heat.
What's with the 4 holes in it for?

The Grand Prix has a triangular opening in that location that the Monte doesn't. I had to cut a bunch of material out of that area when installing the turbo. Good luck!

it looks pretty legit. The extra sleeve is to keep heat away from the inner tube that attaches to the filter. holes, so that the hot air rises through the holes and ventilates better.

Quick fix for the link above

http://www.clubgp.com/newforum/tm.asp?m=2393530


The part that kind of concerns me is the 4" pipe near the 4-3" rubber reducer at the TB is not connected in any way. Instead of using tape to seal that up and keep it steady, I would like to pick your brains about it. How can that end be secured properly?
