95 vs commodore acclaim
I have a 95 vs acclaim with a 2.5inch cat back exhaust, and was wondering is it possible to put the cold air intake from a vt into my vs

No you can't.

If you want to go for a OTR intake check SS inductions or check out the Mace intake , which goes behind the head light area

Or just drill a 75mm diameter hole on the extreme right side the bottom half of the cold air box facing the back of the headlight.
(This is about the biggest you make it without losing too much meat between the standard duct intake or you will weaken the airbox)

Also keep the standard air duct into the cold air box in place.

Free fix for getting rid of any pressure drop or losses caused by a flow restriction whilst getting plenty of cold air that is sucked behind the headlight.

In hindsight this is all you need to do on stock V6, IMO.

I doubt there is a measurable difference of more than 1 kw between this free fix and other cold air intakes systems available on the market.

See how this goes.

Use the standard CAI from a supercharged VS V6.

Super 6 CAI proven to be a heat soak nightmare and near useless. On the clubby I went MACE CAI and never looked back. On my mang V6 I just cut the bottom of the airbox bigger.

A lot of the OTR 's turn out to be heat soak night mares .
