Any one know hot to remove I believe its called the air intake muffler. Its the metal tubing that runs under the air canister to the fender intake. I want to put in a West coast fiero cold air intake, but not sure how that comes out.
thanks!

Ahhh, this should get somewhat interesting. If I was you I wouldn't put that Cold Air Intake on there because it isn't really a cold air intake, more of a Hot Air Intake Kit, if you will. The stock Intake system is a cold air intake, the only modification for this is Rodney's kit. Its cheaper and its actually cold air, plus you get that stucking sound you are going for. Company's make those "Cold Air Intakes" because they know young people will buy them, Don't fall into the trap. Here is the link to Rodneys Kit.

P.S.- I don't mean to be abrasive, I am just giving you the facts and trying to save you money and disappointment.

The WCF intake protrudes into the fender area. So it actually does get cold air. The Fiero Store one, on the other hand, sucks in hot air from the engine compartment.

Anyway...

The water separator box (aka intake muffler) is attached to a bracket behind the quarterpanel. If you move the wheel well liner out of the way, you can look behind the quarterpanel and see the mounting bracket. Removing the left rear wheel might make it a little easier.

Rodneys mod is all you need and if youre not using a 4bbl carb/intake, hi-flo FI/intake, or some type of boost just keep it all stock since the stock intake manifold cant flow as must CFM as the stock air filter/air box anyway.

i know it sounds kind of cheap and back yard rig job but i did something simmiler to rodneys kit with dryer tubing. i took 3" dryer exhaust tubing and used that in place of the muffler. it slides in the stock grommit behind the intake grill and with a little effort around the air box. it works just like a good cold air intake and it only causts about 3 bucks at home depot and it adds a little pollished alluminum to the engine compartment.

I realize most these intakes sucks hot air, I'm not naive. The reason I wanted the West Coast Fiero intake, is because it is a TRUE cold air intake, by going right behind the fender. Hence the reason I need to remove the water separator. So, unbolt the fender liner in the back and get to the bracket holding it in. Thanks!

The intake has been modified. Bored throttle body and bored intake. All intake plenum's have been port matched.

I looked at Rodney Dickmans intake. It's ok, but the old air filter, and air box is still in the car. It doesn't flow straight to the manifold.
