    Wow...Replaced airbox with cone filter on 3.1

    I did it today and noticed a suprisingly nice difference. It seems to have better response and pull a little nicer in the upper Rpm's. I like it. I had a spare cone filter laying around so i decided to put it to good use. I really like the sound that it makes as well. When you put the pedal down it roars! Sounds VERY different from my old Probe 2.0L I4 and all the Honda's you hear with intakes. This actually sounds good!!

    It will Probably be the only mod I do the the Lumina.... still awaiting my Grand Prix 3.4!!!

    now you should work on putting the cone in your fender well

    almost everyone either fabricated their own or modified a kit for a different car. There are a few out there for our cars. I think RSM makes one if I remember correctly.

    I'm glad to hear that you like the cone filter intake, I took mine out within a month. Sounded cool, but I lost too much lowend power for my liking.

    dumb question:

    A lot of parts on that RSM page list a "core charge" of $100. What do they mean by core charge?

    a core charge is when they sell you a remanufactured part. they take old crappy parts and refurbish them. the "core" that they charge for is the old broken down part that you are replacing. you can either eat the $100 charge and keep your old part, or give them your old part and they will give you your $100 back.
