need some help please

Hi everyone, i just got a 2006 ss/sc and i am new to the site and i was wondering if anyone could help me out. i have read posts that you can just put a filter on the end of the stock intake ducting, and it will pretty much be a cai. i am not sure how to get to the filter and if anything needs to be done for this to work. can you provide me with any information that would be helpful, including pics if possible. i would greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.

^^^ Damn dude, you make this place out to be full of idiots... Dont think that noone gives you any info, I gained more info on here than anywhere. Just remember, "A shut mouth gathers no foot" If anyone needs info, just let me know. I know I'm not the brightest crayon in the box, but sometimes people feed off of others ideas.

to get to the stock intake. jack up the driver's side of the car and take of the front driver's side wheel. remove all the clips and bolts holding the well liner in and take it off. undo the airbox cover and take the filter out. take the whole airbox out by unbolting it from the car and unclamping the hose. get a filter, preferably cylindrical with a 3'' inlet. i used a k&n e-1009 but will be switching to an aem dryflow to forgo the hassle of filter oil. with the airbox out of the car drill a hole in the side of it so you can fit a screw driver through to tighten the provided clamp with the filter.

if you want pics, i'm putting mine back in sometime this weekend since i took it out to take my car in for service. i can take pics and write you a good how to on it so you know exactly what to do. for now, go out and get a filter.

i just wanted to say thank you for your help. i wasnt sure if anyone would take me serious or not. i thought i might have just got laughed at. the thing is that i would buy an intake but i dont really have money. once i get outta college i plan to do a lot of mods to the car, cause i will hopefully have more money by then. i do have another question about doing this though. With the bottom of the airbox being open, will any water from rain or anything get up in there and possibly be sucked through the motor. and if anyone has any other suggestions for mods that i can do, im all ears. once again thanks for the help.

Im going to do the same as ^^ but on mine I didnt have to take the wheel off, I just tuned the wheel hard left and had plenty of room. I will put the stock intake on during the winter, the cold air intake may cause harder starting in the cooler air.

i left mine all year in snow, rain, whatever and haven't had any problems. as long as you don't drive through an extremely deep puddle your fine. the wheel well liner will keep most rain out.

and it has to be atleast up past your axle to even get to the filter... if you are driving your car in that much water i would worry about other things more than your filter

i wouldn't... there's not much worse for your car than sucking water up through the intake. trust me, that's why my truck now sits with a blown engine.
