PostSubject: K&N FIPK LT1 Salvage Yard SCORE   Tue Aug 15, 2017 3:04 pm

So I was driving all over Central Texas yarding on Friday trying to locate a reverse light pigtail and socket for the 92 Roadmaster Sedan refurbishment, and noticed the UGLIEST Caprice I'd seen lately at Austin Wrench-A-Part. On getting closer. I noticed the one-inch of Bondo on the rear bumper for "blending" an Impala spoiler, which was gone. Looking closer, I pulled the rear wheel off, and HEY, disc brake rear! I "think" this poor car started life as a real Impala! Dang!

ANYWAY the car is very stripped, and the inside was full of junk, but when I walked around the front the intake filter "cage" caught my eye... I recognized it...FIPK K&N, same thing I have on my '96 Roady Wagon...

I figure it's just the cage, but go dig around inside the car anyway...

And SCORE, it's all there.

It's nasty/dirty and has GREEN overspray on it, but the tube is fine, all the rubber grommets and clamps were in the car, and even the filters. I HATE oiled-filters, so I left the big K&N cone, but did nab the little vent filter. I'm guessing because it looked so crappy that nobody realized what this was.

These things list at $300 now! Crazy!

I paid $20 for everything, including the Roadmaster sedan reverse-light wiring pigtail, which was the actual reason I was there! Ha!

I'm going to clean/paint/restore the setup and send it to my buddy Ben in New Jersey for his 94 Roady wagon. Neat score!

Oh if anyone does one of these, you will want to order this DRY filter. No oiling needed, just wash and let dry!: AEM 21-206DK

There is something very addictive about being in a scrap yard.

The Impala SS was not the only B Body to come with rear discs.

Right, the 9C1 had them too from what I understand.

You should have grabbed the brakes all the way to the backing plate. They can be fitted to a non disk brake rear with a little massaging.

Didn't know that Fred. Would be a fun mod for sure!

Yeah, on the sedan they'll bolt right up. Make sure you grab the little brackets for the brake hoses off the rear end... and ALL of the parking brake hardware (it's inside the disc).

On the wagon you have to do some massaging and light machine work, but nothing too excessive. I went into it on another thread here that unfortunately had to be deleted... I can find the photos I have though if you ever do it. They're on my wagon right now.

Could also get them on a B4U civilian car Smile

I would have yanked this rear axle but thought it was too wide for the Roady Sedan.

Here are the refurbishment pics of the intake. Re-did this to sent to my buddy Ben Randazzo in New Jersey for his continued fun with Silverfox's blue 94 wagon.

Intake tube cleaned and painted Satin Black

Green-overspray scrubbed off rubber seals, clamps, and vent filter. New K&N decal waiting to be added to intake tube.

Time to go back! That thing is worth grabbing for your RMW.

Get the rear axle from disc to disc and the rear section of the parking brake cable. It fits right onto yours, just as I did with my wagon. Take pics of how it's routed and it's really not that hard to do the whole swap.

And knowing you, you'll paint the thing while it's out anyway, so it'll be great.

Yeah the rear ends sell for decent money.

Also I have that same K&N set up and when I put it on my car I lost almost 3MPG on a 800 mile trip. put the stock setup back on and got my 3mpg right back. this was on my 94 RMW Dusty. I really should sell it as I'll never use it again.

I had the end of my wagon housing machined for the smaller backing plates from a sedan axle. You then need a 1/4" spacer under the brake rotor.

The spring pockets will not line up with the wagon and the lower control arms will be at a greater angle. Several people have done it anyway and it does work. As for the parking brake cables, hydraulic lines, mounting piece parts, etc. Bill Harper makes the lines in stainless to convert the wagon to disk.

A 9C1 should have had an engine (oil) cooler.

I find it highly unlikely the sole addition of this intake setup decreased your mileage by 12-15%. I'm not saying your MPG didn't drop on that trip, it just seems to me there would be some other factor at play.

Nice score Mike. The filter you put on seems small though.

He's still working on details, had to remove the home-plate mount and get some shorter hose clamps. Coming along!

Ben also installed the really REALLY nice grill I found at the salvage yard up in Belton too.

I'm glad he's working on and enjoying Silverfox's blue whale!
