these last gen. fwb are crazy! i love the ride, handling, and all the features! i got really lucky and found a tripple burgundy brougham with EVERY (minus moonroof) option! all the other options are great! cd player, rear view dimming mirror etc. anyway...the ones thing i noticed after owning a 87 fwb and then the more powerful 305 1992 fwb.....and now the 96 LT1 fwb...this one just roars! the power behind this bad boy is frightening sometimes! i wooped the asses of these dam hondas with their fart can exhaust and all that garbage! however..i noticed how restrictive the intake system on the car is. i noticed HOME plate is pretty strange like youve all mentioned. most of all i want to get rid of the stock air box and put on a cheap K&N cone filter with adapter. where can i get this? has anyone done it and will i feel a dif in power? i also want to put 2 chrome angle cut pipes coming out of the back. this would get rid of that muffler/cat or watever that is right at the end when the exhaust ends. would that also help in some more performance? i am not looking to make this a race car but just a dailly driver with some dependable power and a nice look and nice sound....wat do u guys think?!?!


i will post pics of my lucky find soon;-)

there was a study of air filters, and in it they had the k&n filter vs paper vs no filter and there wasnt much if any difference in power. the k&n's get dirty fast though and can be there own filter, and even decrease power.

also if u want some good power get cat-back exhaust (flowmaster maybe) and that adds some power and a nice deep sound.

Congrats!!! I put flowmasters on my car and eliminated the first base and home plate also. If anything it sounds much better, but I beleive the did pull harder. We gotta meet up. You can hear the car with flows on.

and now the 96 LT1 fwb...this one just roars! the power behind this bad boy is frightening sometimes!

What frightened me was the suspension! :holycrap:

Once I fixed that, the power wasn't so scary. ;)
