    LS1 Air Box

    Hey Guys. I have a friend with a '97 Z28 w/ a TruFiber SS Hood. The hood is a '93-97 style on the outside, but has the exact ram-air function design as the LS1 underneath. What all is needed to convert to an LS1 style air-box/ram-air setup on the LT.

    Any information is appreciated. Thanks!

    Ditch the radiator support you have and get one from an LS1 car and then all you need is a filter and a lid. Im pretty sure it just uses the outer two bolts. Oh yeah some smooth bellows too.

    Okay, gotcha. My buddy is a racer that's always on a budget, and decided to use some custom-cut rubber ducting instead of a bellows from a manufacturer.

    Thanks again for the reply!

    I know what you mean. I did the WS6 Hood/Air box back in 2000 to my old '95 T/A. The ram-air box alone cost me $320.

    My buddy with the '97 Z found an LS1 Air Box off a parts car ('98 SS) w/ an SLP Lid for $100, FRAM filter for $13 at Kragen, and made his own bellows using a $8 piece of rubber duct and connectors from the hardware store.

    A $121 sure beats paying $320.
