I want to remove all the stock plastic on the top of my motor and put a chrome air cleaner onto the TBI. Will there be any problems just switching it out? Or do I need to make other modifications?

You'll need a bent stud from a 4.9L Cadillac at the junkyard (or order a new one from Jegs or Summit), and you'll have to tap a hole in the bottom for the intake air temp sensor. Then, put a breather filter on your PS valve cover (or tap another hole for that piece of hose.

Otherwise, nah.

Awesome. I think I'll save up my pennies and modify. Thanks.

You will also need the bolts from the caddy TBI to get rid of the long studs that hold the toaster. Consider looking into the cold air Caddy hat/Home Depot/Lowes intake. There are a couple of varieties of it, and if the vapor canister is in the way of the air filter, you can use a mount from a 94-96 to move it under the wheelhouse.

Caddy, schmaddy.

To use a standard Chrome Air Cleaner, Spectre makes the required stud and the factory Throttle Body bolts are not an issue.

I read somewhere that deletion of the air cleaner surround tube results in a loss of HP and is a potential fire hazard when using a paper filter....The thread I was reading (I wish I could remember where) said our plastic snorkle filters are the second-best for HP....
