    I put octane booster in my throttle body and saw gains of 27 HP and 33 TQ judged by the increased throttle response. My buddy rode in the passenger seat and confirmed my theory.




    See how easy it is to make claims. SLP works the same way.

    I installed the SLP cold air kit on my SS, and left the front open. When I went to the track I brought some tape with me, and blocked off various parts of the cold air setup,,,both the hood,,,,,the SLP cold air setup etc.....back and forth and made several runs.

    Mine ran best with both the cold air kit and the hood functioning at the same time. I couldn't help but wonder if I would have had the same results with just the free ram air mod,,,,and not bother installing the duct work.

    So on my wifes SS I just did the free ram air mod. Judging by how the filter gets dirty quickly,,,it's working just as well as the duct work on my SS.
    I have yet to take her car to the track again with some tape and see if I find the same results on her car, I didn't get enough runs in the last time out.

    Clear lid

    I got the clear lid from MTI 9yrs ago it's great. But after I put the SLP smooth bellows on since it's not very flexable the clips kept popping loose after getting on it. So I put one screw through the lid on both sides and took off the factor clips problem solved.
    Good luck with the ram air kit

    Did you pay full price for the bellow?
    Did you want it for looks or performance?

    Ya I found with the smooth bellow it takes a bit more effort to get the lid to fit just right. Once it's on there it's fine, but I guess the only thing I don't like about it,,,is if you want to service the filter, you have to remove one of the clamps and pop it loose.
    With the accordian style on my other car, I can simply unclip the lid and pull it forward, lift it up etc...all the while the bellow is still connected, much easier to service the filter quickly. But that's just me being picky.

    Yes it was brand new so I paid full price which was 9yrs ago so I'm not sure what it was 50-90 dollars not sure?
    I got it for performance, don't think it's much of a looker.

    Yeah I had to cut it down a bit because of BBK TB and make a notch in it due to SLP MAF it was a little of a bitxh. I got it fitting fine, but since it isn't flexable I kept finding one of the clips popped off whenever I popped the hood. So I screwed the lid down.
