Nice! Looks good. How many hours did you put in? lol

Well, lets see, in total, probably 6-7 hours. I still have to clear coat it, but I'm waiting until tomorrow to do that

Now ditch the insanely restrictive airbox. CAI's are stupid cheap for these cars.

I'd love to find the engineer behind the W-body's airbox setup, and punch him in the face.

I would like to smack alot of engineers for there oil filter locations. Toyota is 1# on my list...... yea lets put it up front under the manifold so you get burned when changing it.

Does the box reduce my gas mileage? If you guys can tell me anything I should/can do to improve efficiency, I might do it. This isn't a go fast car, its my economical, daily driver. The Phoenix gets all the toys

Stock airbox = junk.

You will see a slight increase in MPGs, and the fun factor is so worth it.
