View Full Version : 97 TA ls1 swap, where to put air filter?

I just got done with my ls1 swap in my 97 ta convt. Now I have a problem finding room to put the air filter somewhere. Already tried the ls1 ram air box, didnt fit. The only thing I can figure out is the factory lt1 ram air box, but those are very hard to come by and very expensive. Not much room for a 4 inch elbow and filter between the radiator and engine. Any suggestions, or anybody have a lt1 ram air box?

What hood are you using? WS6 or the Flat hood?

edit: nevermind most likely you have the ws6 hood. The ram air box should fit. What base are you using? the WS6 or the lower ls1 base?
