What would I have to do to install a cold air intake on my 1996 olds?

Well, first find out what engine you hav, then search around for correct intake for your car. Id give ebay a try,, thats where i got my k&n x) then you will have to yank the old one off by removing the screws connecting it,, but dont throw it away!! =) then what i did with my 3.3 is very carefully take the little mesh screen out of the opening of the intake manifold wich gives a tad bit more flow {dnt throw that away either} then just attach the new intake and be sure to tighten all the hose clamp if there are any! That should pretty much be it... hope that helps,, if anyone else can add anything please do> =D

I use a Spectre Performance intake I made with there premade chrome pieces. You can buy a whole range of parts like 90 degree bends, straight pipes, and cupplers. and they look really nice. You should be able to get these at an O'Rilly store or some other parts store.

I've been wondering - how do those "spectre" chrome plastic pipes hold up to hot air and boost pressure? I was afraid of them on my turbo setup. But they do look good none the less!

Ha- that's what I would expect of a plastic pipe on the hot air side of a turbo system. Something about pressurized 300° air and plastic pipe are not a good mix...

How did your turbo 3300 work out? Several members here have been wanting to turbo the 3300. I've done a 2.8 turbo and a 3.8 turbo, but not a 3300.

Thanks,
David

DAMN you can't slip a piece of paper in edge-ways in that engine bay. Sounds good, though!

I use a Spectre performance (http://www.carparts.com/Spectre-Parts/4199998157-10618.car) intake I made with there premade chrome pieces. You can buy a whole range of parts like 90 degree bends, straight pipes, and cupplers. and they look really nice. You should be able to get these at an O'Rilly store or some other parts store.

my dad just bought a 2002 Monte Carlo SS, and it came the intake installed already on there. I know it's the intake because I've owned previous 3800 motors and never have I experienced anything this bad. I've read that these thing s are suppose to increase your gas mileage. I'm not a speeder, so I know it's not my foot. Should I just go back to stock air box and filter?

i made my own, its not perfect and i know it gets hot air from the radiator hose and exhaust manifold, but it still made an improvement over the stock box
