    T/A stock intake on a V6?

    I sold my 1994 Trans Am because the transmission blew for the second time now, so I bought a 1997 Firebird to drive around for 6 months or so until I have enough money to afford a newer model Trans Am. But anyways, I still have the stock intake from my Trans Am and was wondering if it would fit on a V6? The reason I ask is because the person I bought the Firebird from put a Fram Airhog intake on it which just from looking at it, I can tell its very restrictive and even more restrictive than the intake that was on it before. Thanks for any help!

    well a intake from a v8 cant fit on a v6 because it has 2 more air inlets for cylinders that would need to be used or plugged. probably wouldnt fit anyway.

    I don't think the OP is talking about Intake Manifold but the air inlet track before the TB.

    You can make it work.

    You may have to get some pieces from the hardware store but you should be able to make it work.

    The 96-02 3800-II throttle body on F-body has an 80-85mm (outside diameter) air inlet @ the front so you'll need a coupling or 2 in the 4" range and a connector pipe.

    By 1999 3800-II's were changed to the LS1 "type" air box and lid with the air lid outlet oval shaped and slightly favoring the drivers side.

    The LS1 cars use a center outlet on their lids and the port is round but the offset on the v6 TB is'nt that drastic.

    You should be able to overcome the oddity with a little work.

    To add: The air outlet on the LS1 lid is smaller than the air inlet on the 3800-II TB so you'll likely get a noticable thrushing sound as air is drawn past the smaller LS1 style opening in the lid.

    Cool! Now I must say that if you're going to use the ram Air style box and lid it will likely not clear the standard hood on the v6 car as the ram air box and lid are taller.

    However if it's the lower style lid and box it should work out fine with some coupling and pipe work.
