VL's were the last of the carburettored commodores

CAI has many forms, bonnet scoops, snorkles, etc, all of them work to a point

gday

this has actually interested me for a little while now. i have a 91 EA CFi and was wondering if anyone knows if CAI can be done for this at all and if anyone has infact tried this? would it be worth the effort?
i know that when it comes to CFi, everyone just says mpfi conversion, but thats not viable for me at the moment. so i was wondering if there have been an mods to cfi at all that have worked?

cheers!

there is no reason why you can't do it.
K&N probably do a filter that would fit too, if you wanted to pay for one that is

or you could go the old school carbie trick and use a filter an inch taller to gain filter area. it'll suck hot air but it's still an option
