    I think they did the Y set up cuz of the WS6 hood to try n be in both nostrils, n they did the Camaro filter set up for the SS hood since it is 1 hole

    are the throttle body's the same in the camaro and firebird? or like the tube size from the filter back into the TB(mass-airflow)?

    Just asking because i know my buddies 04 Grand-marquis has a circular TB and he thought he could put on a K&N intake off a 04 marauder and those had an oval shape TB, and well that didnt work haha thanks guys

    I have the volant and the difference is the Camaro one large oval filter compared to the y with 2 rounder filters. I've never tried a camaro style on a TA but it should clear the hood.
