you can make your own if you are skilled enough. a Cold air intake is easilly reproduced at a fraction of the cost of buying one from a "dealer"
Here is what your looking at, you already have a plastic intake which is far ahead of the chrome ones which are horrible for your engine, but make it look nice. You can re-route the intake to a shorter pull, but taking in air through your bumber grills, into a filter in a box (ask later) and the up to the throttle body and in.
it would make you intake half the length and get colder air to the engine which would increase fuel efficiency.
i pulled the whole intake and fabbed up a custom 1 using parts from auto zone.all parts r installed after the MAP sensor and i also pulled the air box but you need 2 remove the inner fender trim panel 2 get 2 it ill post pics in a couple days let me know how it goes!
I have a kit similar to what you guys are talking about on my Grand Prix. I would love to make one, but I don't know where I would even route it... There isn't much space on the driver's side like the GP. This is kinda what I was hoping to do, but I lack the knowledge of where to put it.
you can also be creative and route the intake into the right fender where the stock air box is located and pull off that stock-aftermarket look.As soon as i find my camera i will post pictures for you to reference!
OK, update: I've decided to use the same K&N 9" cone filter as the one on my car at the end of the MAF in hopes of better mileage. This is, after all, a trip car and could use a little better range/economy. I have another question, but that's for another thread... Thanks all!
Yeah, I tried fitting up my filter and it will fit. I'm ordering a new one once I have the money. For those with the 04-07 Malibu V6, the K&N P/N is RE-0870. Also need a coupler from 3" (intake tube) to 4" (filter opening).
