Thanks. I also replaced the factory speakers with polk audio ones. Kept the factory tweets though. They sound pretty good still.

Thanks. It took some reading on here and messing with it to get it to properly fit in the dash with no issues.

Got some more pics coming soon. My FWI setup I ordered should be in tomorrow. I went with a 3.5" aluminum setup with silicone adapters and a K&N 7.25" Filter.

Started and finished my FWI this morning.  Only took  couple of hours since after all the pics and reading on here it went rather easily.  First the parts I used were spectre 3.5" aluminum.  So it went like this.  4" to 3.5" reducer, 45 degree, 3.5" coupler, 22 degree, 3.5" coupler, 90 degree, 3.5" to 3" reducer, 3" diameter 6" straight into the filter.  Part numbers I used were 9741, 9541, 9549, 9529, 9599, 9419, (2) 9571 and the E-0774 K&N Filter.

That does look sweet. Does it have enough room for engine flex?

Nice looking work. I like the "polished metal" look.

If my 12 spokes had been chrome I would have never bought the 7 spokes. A thought would be to pick up chrome center caps if you ever see them. A member of the Atlanta Riviera club had lost a couple of his and had replaced them with silver. Besides, the chrome 12 spoke center caps may be worth more than the car some day.

Thanks guys. It sounds pretty sweet and really lets air flow now. I haven't found much info on my chrome wheels. I've seen them in aluminum, but not sure I've found those exact ones in chrome. Same goes for those gold emblems on the sail panels.

I guess I missed this one, haven't had much time to look around here lately. bonk

The Riv does look good! thumbsup

The only dealer installed “gold” package I know of was they changed the emblems on the quarters and did the hood and trunk emblems “gold”. The piece added to your sail panels look like they might be from one of the early ‘90s Rivs? Looks good but not exactly what they normally called a “gold” package addition.

Actually, I think your upholstery guy did a nice job on your A-pillar gauges!

I also have a ZZP 3.5" pulley (but in Silver.)

The only think I "disagree with" are the Gatorback belts - I found that the Delco replacements, which look "mildly bead-blasted" on the bottom, were the only ones that were as quiet as the worn ones I took off...

Thanks. I got the black ZZP just to match my current pulleys. Otherwise I would have gone with the silver one. I have the Gatorbacks on my Camaro and really like them. So I just kept going with the same ones for the Riv as well.
