Hello all. Posted a few times here but figured id do an intro thread.

Have also badgered a few members with 100 questions already too :p

Current setup is a 2008 chevy impala 9c1 and man gotta say I love driving this car :) much different from a 99 suburban lol.

So far loving how supporting and helpful everyone here is!

Welcome! :beer: I have the centers, but have to install them. I have to drill and tap though, becuse its not a 9c1. I am added trim rings too. I think it'll look cool with both.

Made my first purchase for the impala today :) started off simple and just got a K&N filter. Gonna attempt to make a "swiss cheese" intake once I figure out exactly what/where im suppose to be doing it to. lol

Next upgrade will be the center console, which hopefully will be purchased today.

Yeah I picked up a part time job just for the car. Being that I live in a tourist town there are a few cash jobs that I do during the summer.

All towards the impala I say. Who needs to eat when you can go fast? :glasses1:

Modified my air box today. with the K&N filter I got I am hoping it a cheap improvement.

Was even trying to go cheaper but it seems like spectre filters are sold out everywhere in VA beach:WTF:

here is a picture of what the end result looks like.. Hoping I did it correctly let me add. lol

Should be good as long as the intake side is covered by the filter. You could run pipe from the airbox to the front bumper opening, or from the tb to the bumper with a cone filter
