    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 must admit, I'm tempted with my '95 Cutlass Supreme convertible LQ1, to take out the bumper mounted fog lights, and custom make dual intake ducts, connected to a custom air intake system, with 442 emblems on the doors and make W-34 emblems for the front fenders...…..no more cocktails for me tonight.....

    CS getting cleaner

    Just cheap Dupli-color truck and RV silver paint. At the very end, the pipes don't get hot enough to need hi-temp.

    A little sanding of the pipes, and a spray of brilliant silver paint made them look new again. Yes, they were black and ugly when I got it. The left pipes are not quite centered in their cutout, but I intend to correct that soon.

    Yucca Valley is just up the hill from me about 25 miles in the high desert.

    CS getting cleaner

    I'm in Palm Desert. I am fortunate that I do not have to deal with the snow and Ice like in other parts of the country. The tradeoff, however, is that in the summer, it's over 100 degrees most of the time, and it's too hot to work on cars...

    Pics of my new NOS 'Oldsmobile' emblem, freshly detailed taillights and right side door panel.

    91 vs 95 LQ1 Comparison

    OK, thanks. You're right, the replacements seem to be the earlier style. The car runs fine, so I may just leave it alone or try to find a'95 LQ1 in the JY.

    91 vs 95 LQ1 Comparison

    Thanks for the extra photos. I was wondering why my hood bumpers had paint around the base. I guess that's how they came. Did you figure out why the transmission is failing with such low miles?

    What happened to the tranny? Wondering if you recently changed the fluid. Some, including myself, believe that new fluid can actually cause transmission failure.

    91 vs 95 LQ1 Comparison

    Sounds good. I'm also using your photos to tidy up my '95 engine bay. Could you tell me what the device is that is at the top passenger side of the plenum? (photo) Mine is broken and patched up with black RTV and I want to get a new one if it can be found. I can see that my wiring harness is not routed right (photo). At least I did get the coolant bottle and area cleaned up.

    Should I get these?

    I just looked at the offset, and the wheel width is over 1.25" different. I don't want to overload the bearings with a high offset.

    Should I get these?

    Thanks. I was looking for something like that online but couldn't find it. Looks like the wheels won't fit, the offset is quite a bit different. J
  15. These came from a 2016 Malibu. I'm considering them for my CS convertible. Will have to try them on to see if they fit.
