    and thank for the help! but one more how much would a new lid be and would it be easier to just get a enw one or sand down the baffles?
    F-Bodys have been unibody since the begining.. HP can tweak/twist the frame. I know of people that after HP mods and racing that their T-Tops leak and other issues. It does not take much HP with the f-bodies to twist it.. I have weld in SFC's... But you can get bolt in also and other styles.. Below is just 1 example and its BMR...

    Did you cut out the base to allow for more air flow? Also did you cut out the flap over the core support? Gotta do that for it to work properly

    I have QTP SS race headers (no AIR) with the HVMC. They work great, fit well and still look good after 5 years (stainless steel = no color changes). New they were a bit pricey. I lucked out and found a used pair for half price.

    My car isn't lowered so I went with a true dual setup and an X-pipe with Magna Flows all dumped at the axle. Needless to say no cats or AIR.

    an air lid is a must if you are planning on getting future mods, because most mods will need more air, and an air lid is a cheap way to start.

    well i would get a diablo sport programmer, on some sites you can get them for a little over 300 dollars. And it is worth the money, i think. bc you can always sell it for just a little less than you paid for it bc you cant wear it out. I think the SLP cold air intake package is supposed to add 20hp over stock. But cost 300 from them. I say buy some of the stuff used bc you cant wear it out.

    #1. do not get a programmer, mail order tune or dyno tune for these cars
    A mail order tune is better fitted for your car and way cheaper

    #2. SLP is known for making outrageous HP/TQ claims, not saying the cold air is crap, just saying its not 20hp

    She's right though. A handheld tuner is kinda like jacking off. It feels good but it's not the same.

    DO NOT PORT YOUR MAF! just polish if you really want to but the vertical piece inside your MAF is a air spliter designed to work with your MAF sensors. Stock MAF's wills support 500+ hp. just leave it alone.

    texas speed and performance , pacesetter headers ceramic coated long tubes then get a tsp off road y pipe get all the parts for like 571.98 plus shiping , pacesetter are cheap but best for cash or check out the tsp headers, there not to bad to put in i found directions step by step and did it in my garage took bout 6 to 8 hours but i never did it took my time , if you dont do the work labor will run you from 350 to 450 , with headers and get the lid and flo pac and 410 gears youll be happy for awhile a slp maf 85mm they help but a tune is a better way to go
