you one of those Turbo Regal owners who bought in to the ram air theory
for better performance? It has been proven that the canisters used
in those systems are more of a restriction then a performance
enhancer. I relocated the
air filter on my 1987 Grand National to in front of the radiator support and got
rid of the ram air canister, scoop and hose. Now my motor gets
fresh cool air from out of the motor compartment thru a huge 4"
inlet K&N filter. Parts included are a new 9" K&N air filter
a 4" inlet, a 4" O.D.
45 degree elbow available in plain or powder coated Aluminum OR triple
plated chrome steel, a 90 degree rubber elbow with hose
clamps that goes thru an existing hole in the radiator support and reducer connector to hook to your stock
Chevy style MAF sensor. A hole
is drilled in the adapter for easy installation of the MAT sensor if
You can use this kit with MOST
solid MAF pipes that are available from aftermarket vendors but you may
have to alter the length on them. To ensure a perfect fit I suggest that
you purchase one of our solid MAF pipes that
are designed to work with our kits.
This kit is
not designed to work with the
factory flexible air duct.
This is a picture of the parts supplied
with the Big Mouth Cold Air kit iin polished aluminum. This kit will fit thru the opening of the radiator
support without any alterations to the opening. The rubber elbow is
specifically made for turbo diesel air intakes and works great for this
This is the polished aluminum kit with
rubber elbow fully assembled. The kit comes complete with all
necessary clamps and adapters and is also available without the air
filter. For a complete turbo to filter setup order one of our MAF pipes!
Allan Gorneault's 87 TR
Allan is a local customer who
is running a Stage 2 motor is his TR with one of our 4"
inlet pipes and a Big Mouth Cold Air kit. This car is street
driven and has recently gone 9.86 at 136 mph! Allan has
sent me some data files that show how effective our cold air
kits are. Click
here or on his car to see them.
cold air kits use a 9" K&N cone filter with a 4" opening,
this is where the BIG MOUTH name comes in. It WILL NOT work with
the 3" inlet filter a lot of Turbo Regal enthusiasts are already using under the hood
that is attached directly to the MAF sensor. If you are ordering
the kit without a filter be sure you have a filter that has a 4"
If you currently are running
a stock Buick MAF sensor and plan on upgrading in the future to a Chevy
MAF sensor, please be aware that you will need to order a new 45 degree
metal elbow for the kit to work. The Chevy MAF sensors are about
2" shorter than the Buick which necessitates a longer metal elbow
to compensate. I CAN supply these separately if you need one in
the future, just email me for pricing.
For those of you who have converted over to the newer style Chevy MAF
sensors; we can make a longer 4" 45 degree elbow that will work
with these shorter sensors but need to know up front that you are using
one. The adapter that I use to reduce down to the stock MAF
sensor measures 3 3/8" inside diameter and is flexible enough to
fit over the 3.5" sensors and will also work with the 3"
Installation is very easy
and some small but easy modifications may be needed for the perfect
fit. Your fuel vapor canister will have to be moved over about an
inch or so for clearance to the 45 degree elbow and I suggest cutting
the upper radiator hose where it attaches to the radiator about an inch
for additional clearance.

These kits are made to order and may take up to
two weeks to deliver depending on inventory. Usually I can get your order
out to you within a week upon receiving payment.
If you have any doubts on
whether this system will work on your car please email me first at firstname.lastname@example.org
IMPORTANT! The BIg
Mouth cold air kit does NOT come with the MAF pipe. We offer 3
different sizes of MAF pipes and they must be ordered separately.
