Filter alone probably isn't worth much in terms of power gain.

A friend of mine has a Bonneville SSEi with a bunch of power tweaks. That thing goes pretty good for a bigger car.

The Bonneville SSEi and the Grand Prix Supercharged both have the 3800 with a supercharger on them.

Gutting the airbox will get you around 5-7 more HP, and a pretty decent sound to it.

The problem with the K&N filters is that when you have to clean and re-oil them, it's too easy to put too much oil on them. That extra oil is what gets up the air tube and clogs things up. They aren't necessarily bad though. If you decide to get one, it's pretty easy to pop out the MAF sensor, inspect it to make sure there isn't anything building up on it, and give it a spray with some MAF cleaner to be sure. If you really overdid it with the oil, you would have problems for sure. The filter itself probably won't do much, but you would notice something from the CAI.

A better option would be to get an undersized supercharger pulley. It's a pretty popular mod on your engine. Most people go with a 3.4" pulley. This mod will make the supercharge spin faster, giving you more boost. They say 25-30hp more. The pulley itself is under $100, but you need a specialize tool if you want to do it right. Still, it's more bang for your buck than the intake mod.

Yeah, I understand about using the same/similar supercharged engine. I was only saying he's gone further than just air cleaners, with custom PROM work, compressor pulleys, exhaust, injector flow match, tranny work, etc., etc.

Dunno how it is on the Pontiacs, but I've mostly gutted the air intake on my '91 Z-28 Camaro. The caution for that car is to be careful in the rain/water puddles because the resulting splash can soak the air filters with the baffles removed.

Not a big deal for me because the Camaro gets driven only in nice weather, but on a daily driver it might be a different story.

Theres another mod along those lines I see people typing about. Not sure what 3.8's specifically but they install aftermarket rolling rockers and pushrods that are available as a kit. They get more lift out of the valves which apparently helps quite a bit.

    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it.
