Wow, that looks great. Are you planning on doing a dyno to see any gains? Nicely done. Hope it helps out too.01SS05RL said:
I don't think he was bashing much, he did compliment him on the install job. He was just speaking very directly. He's right too, that filter does suck, and the dryer tube isn't the greatest idea. However, it's better than anyone else's system that's out there huh?navymitch12 said:dont bash the man for trying, what he did makes it better than stock and i am sure that it was more of just a trying things to make the car faster and not really wanting to sell it, i think its a great start you are rite it would be better with a expensive filter and some metal tube but at least what hes got going it better than stock.
The more I look at this, the more impressed I am with it. Other than the filter choice, and maybe the tubing, but it's the same tubing (more or less) as we already have on part of it.jpapa said:Yea I don't think that planet was criticizing too bad, just suggesting better products to use. Nice clean looking install man. I'm wondering a couple of things about it though. In picture 9, it shows nothing is hooked up to the supercharger's outward airflow to the airbox. How did you combine the supercharger's flow with the intake? I don't think there's a picture of that up there. If you could, post that one too please Did you combine it back with the stock tube that comes out of it? Do tell if you notice any improved throttle response or throatier sound out of it. Thanks!
Thanks Spooner, The tubing just fits past the frame, no squeezing! It's 3" all the way. Will try to get pics showing it tonight.Sp00ner said:The more I look at this, the more impressed I am with it.

One thing that I noticed before, how did you get the new intake hosing past the frame/body that I saw right behind the 'fog light' cut outs? Did you have to squeeze the tube or anything like that? That was what stopped me in my tracks, I though I would have to squeeze the tube more than I wanted to.
Does anyone know of a filter that is a better quality one that will also fit correctly. I already have the K&N E1009 in the airbox right now, but that wouldn't work for the application like he has it here.
That is quite different from what I was looking to do. I was trying to attach that hose into the stock airbox, creating, I hoped, a somewhat pressurized are inside of the stock airbox. That way I could keep as much of the stock hardware in there as possible. Mainly for ease rather than performance possibilities. That thing looks great though.
Or maybe just figure out how to use the K&N? I know it dosen't have an open front cone like that, but maybe something can be worked out. If there's no reason to use a Saturn-specific filter, there should be some K&N filters that are built the same way. Those open cone filters are pretty popular. I'll do some checking of the K&N inventory rite quick and be back...01SS05RL said:Thanks Spooner, The tubing just fits past the frame, no squeezing! It's 3" all the way.

Would also like to find a better quality filter. Someone said check out Apexi?
Perfect! Thanks! Hopefully the center hole the hose attaches to is the same. If not, I'm sure it could be adapted.Sp00ner said:Here's a list of K&N filters that are open-topped.
