well i wanted to see if any G8 parts would fit on the SS so i asked around to see if anyone had any used parts. i ended up picking up a used G8 intake tube with two couplings and some clamps for $40 bucks shipped! parts were like brand new too!
so i tired it…..
However as you can see it in the above photo that is a tad short and a slightly off on angle. plus even with these silicone couplings it wouldn’t work.
but then i remember i had something that might work
i had a left over according type intake coupling from a GTO magnuson kit. and used that to correct the angle and extend the tube. And……
now all i have to do is plumb the line to the valve cover now and add in a DROP IN K&N. now if look at the bottom of the stock box, it has a good inlet on the bottom already. it is like you really don't need the typical aftermarket CAI.
THEN…. i had one of these:
this is also from a G8
and looky here:
BUT one problem the passenger side does NOT work. the fuse box on the VF/SS is way bigger and it doesn’t fit. I am going to look into trimming it to make it work.
either way not to bad for $40 bucks and sure looks a **** of a lot better without the stupid ugly intake carbon trap box!
