What are the aftermarket air filter options for a 91 Caprice (305)?

Is it possible to fit a muscle car type of air filter on them or am i stuck with the stock one?

Reason im asking is my air box is missing some parts and starting to look old and i want to replace it with something nicer.

leave it stock its pointless.

but they have these arm looking k&n intakes that look ugly imo.

there are a bunch of options out there, check ebay for CAIs for tbi trucks, some have used those before or you can do the caddy CAI




^^^

cadillac intake, PVC pipe

or buy the RAISS kit and fab a housing to mate with kit, Memphisakacaprious has done this



this is an LT1 and its not Memph's car, but you get the idea

So something in this style isint possible?

i misread your first post, there are a few members that are running that type of air cleaner/filter, i think you have to use spacers and a certain stud(can be found on early 90s cadillacsm that have the same intake i have on mine)


that would have looked hot with my eldebrock valve covers!




pm Sinister, i believe this was his car

here are another, im not a %100 sure this isnt carbbed

lol you do that, naw i would just go the route Sinister did, not expensive
It was very cheap actually. I bought a set of valve covers off the shelf at Auto Zone and the correct stud was included in the package. The valve covers were $50 or so and the air cleaner was the plain chrome and was less than $30.

The same stud used to mount the caddy intake setup can be used for the old school filter setup :)

The filter housing has a cutout in it that just pops right out. Stick the air temp sensor in that hole and viola.

Takes a little work to keep clean but mine was a beater so I didn't care if it was clean,lol. My Bro has the car now and we will be building a 350 for it soon.

Some of the high dollar air cleaner assemblies will have several different studs in the box for various applications. The off the shelf Edelbrocks I have purchased in the past did not however.

I have a couple of Caddy hats with the studs and rubber connector. Check my for sale thread (below) for pricing. You have to supply the pipe and aircleaner.
