Pontiac Firebird 1967-2002 - Looking for suggestions on CAI for 99 TA
06-16-2010, 11:00 PM
Now that we are getting the car back up to par, we want to add some bolt-ons to the car.. we got the car running and just going thru and fixing electrical light issues(mostly blown bulbs and rusted sockets) just wondering on a good CAI for the car and any other suggestions for bolt ons.

Ws6 hood for sure. U don't need a CAI with some ram air

From what I've seen recently, I would go with the chrs1313. There are two versions, one that retains ac and one that doesnt. Speed inc sells them but you have to call for the one that retains ac.
I like my FTRA, but I feel like I could use something bigger now.

Not sure if the a WS6 hood is in the budget at this time, but def not out of the picture completely. Pseudonym i found the FTRA but you think the SpeedInc Chrs1313 would be better? Now since our car is not Ram Air, we can still use these setups right?
Also, if we go with something like this, should we consider changing out the MAF and TB? If so, since the car is stock, what would be good replacments?

The FTRA and Chrs1313 both suck in air from underneath the car, not through the nostrils, so you do not need a ram air hood. I ran my car with the FTRA without changing the MAF, throttle body, or flat hood for over a year without any problems. I recently put in a 402 so I switched to a Nick Williams 92mm throttle body, I got a speed density tune to eliminate the MAF, and I still have the flat hood.
I really like the Nick Williams TB as a replacment or you could have your stock throttle body ported and polished. I dont have any experience with aftermarket MAF.

I would get a LID, CB and a tune. You are not really going to gain much with any type of ram-air system.

These cars suck in more air down low. It was a big sotp difference when i sealed my airbox/lid & added the ssra. My engine only breathes from below the airbox now.
You dont need a ram air hood to get good airflow.
