ok guys

ive had my 98 trans am for about 7 months now, and well i really havent done much to it,

so when i bought the car, my TA had the Suncoast creations hood/ intake setup
the one that looks like the 97 TA setup,

my question is should i just get a lid, which i think i might and lose that air intake set up???

thanks feel free to ask ??

Here is the link it has some pics to give you guys and idea of what i have

I'm not familiar with the type of intake setup you are talking about but most people just get a lid and call it a day.

Are you talking about the cold air intake?... If so i have come to realize if it is not the perfect temp outside that thing is a waste of money...

yeah i posted a link that shows the set up,

only reason im thinking of changing it is because my hood got damaged and i was wondering if its worth getting the same one or just another one and just use a lid.

there are a lot of guys on here making 400+ n/a to the wheels with the lid style intake.. it's up to you what you want, they all perform.

that cool, when i got the car the guy i bought it from had a dyno sheet that said the car was making 305 Hp, and like 304 in torq,

so im shooting for something close to 350- 400 hp

what is usually needed to see those numbers???

I like that's sharp.

...and +1 on the lid.

yeah i like it 2, seams a bit taller then the OEM WS6 hood, right???

It just sets off the nose of the 93-97 Birds real sick-like. If I owned a Trans Am it'd have to look like that :D
