    Mark at KY Speed is the way to go. I have an SLP lid that fits fine. You just have to make sure the lid is behind the lip of the lower air box.

    FTP 98mm Lid here...I love it, but if you're relatively stock, SLP is the best bang for your buck.

    SLP aftermarket, WS6store on sale for just under $90.
    What are you using for the bellows after the lid?
    If it's a stiff tube, that may help be the cause for the crack.
    Might wanna look at SLP aftermarket bellows also. Or use the stock accordian.

    one thing with the SLP air lids. You may have to get some 1/2" foam weatherstripping to help seal up the lid. The foam that comes with the lid just doesn't seal it very well. After I used the 1/2" no issues since.

    My lid also came with a strip of foam to run along the back edge. I used a flashlight to check the seal and it was tight. How are your rear tabs with the 1/2" foam?

    No problems, I need to press down a little more firmly to get the clips on but I have to say that makes it a better seal. Some lids don't need it some do. I think it depends on how the lid and the box are made. Like Tuesday/Wednesday quality is better then some made on a Friday.


    i also don't mean 1/2" thick foam, I mean 1/2 " wide 1/8" thick weather stripping.
