    I disagree that the factory CAI is adequate. Perhaps with a brand new filter it flows enough by engineering standards. A good CAI is a worthwhile upgrade. Many moons ago I did a CAI that vastly increased filter surface area. https://www.w-body.com/topic/53261-first-gen-low-buck-custom-cold-air-intake/

    Even though it looks small the vacuum from the engine can still suck in a decent volumn of air from were its at, more intake diameter wont really do anything until you go from sucking in air to forcing in air, A.K.A. Forced Induction, adding a supercharger or turbocharger. The exhaust tips are for looks and IIRC only one has an actual opening, Ive got C5 tips on mine and cannot recall what the originals looked like. I did have a noticeable gain in power from replacing the stock DP and cat converter to the bolt on magnaflow high flow cat converter. Highly recommend anyone in a 1st gen do.

    That's so true. Just after seeing the tiny little breather inlet on my car, stuck behind the headlights, seems like anything would help. I also find if funny that the car has 4 exhaust tips, but it's really a single exhaust pipe.

    I would never make any permanent mods. If I did anything, it would be fully reversible. When I was 16, I made a W32 out of my '69 Cutlass S convert, using dryer duct and hand folded aluminum sheets duct taped to the bottom of the bumper...….worked for a while, but they kept falling off and I finally ran over them. Still dumb and poor...…...

    I had that same thought about the fog light cutouts to use as intakes, inspired by the F-14 and F-15 but it would suck up all sorts of crap from the road and still not make any sort of noticeable gains in HP/torque. I feel like any W-body 442 should have a N* under the hood vs a LQ1/L67.

    W bodies with the Wrong stock wheels

    X-laces work nice on the GPs but I didnt really care for the look on the non-Intl Cutlass, I dont care for the Pie rims very much on anything. But to roll with that idea and some of the non-xlaced style Grand National rims might look pretty sweet. IIRC an old member Venom? had a nice white CS on some aftermarket rims I really liked but havent seen them around since the update.

    Trunk leaks

    Ive only seen the seam sealer and window urethane in caulk gun tubes, I couldnt imagine trying to hand squeeze that gunk out of a regular foil tube when cold. Black RTV will be more than enough to seal up spoiler holes so long as you do it right.

    Trunk leaks

    Ain't that the truth. All I've got is vatozone close by. Got a tube of permatex black RTV stuff. Hope that will do it. Also got a pack of smell good stuff for the vents. Sorry impulse buy....lol Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Trunk leaks

    Stupid auto parts store only had seam sealer in a caulking tube. I got it but I know 90% of it is going to be hard before I can use it.

    I'm in the garage right now sealing up the trunk spoiler bolts. Good times. Lol Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Trunk leaks

    Mine was the top of the window, it would run down around the window and drip in the trunk. My GS has a leaky luggage rack bolt right about dead center, you've inspired me to pick up some seam sealer today.

    Trunk leaks

    That sucks. I know it's leaking from the bolt holes for sure. The other areas are on the sides near the rear. Almost in the middle to be close. That's why I think the trunk seals leaking when the trunks shut. Will see what happens. Hopefully the resealed spoiler bolts will help some until the seal gets here Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    Trunk leaks

    When my Regal was damp in the trunk it turned out to be the window.

    Trunk leaks

    Any of you guys had to deal with your trunks leaking? Mine is and I'm having a time finding it. So I ordered a new trunk seal and today I'm going to reseal the bolts that hold down the sopiler. Hope that takes care of the leak. It's on my 95 Grand Prix. I'm about 95% sure it's the seal leaking. However I did see some water coming from the spoiler bolts, so will be using some silicone to fix those. Fun, fun! Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  19. You're cropped a little different, that background was just too cool to crop out. There were two months like that.

    That pic makes me worried, looks like a 92 or 93 International coupe, junkyard car? I hope not.

    Looks like they took the engine out of the front and put it in the freaking trunk.

    Hey, what about 2nd Gen Monte 5 sppkes on a Cutlass? I bet that would work cosmetically.

    Can't go wrong with X- Laces, they look good on anything. A set of pies with black or body color inlays would look B.A., and be more appropriate/period though.
  27. Both of my Buicks had tweeter locations in the door just above the speaker. I'm surprised the Cutlass was different.
