    Changing the stock ram air to a slp lid

    Can anyone tell me what I need to change from the stock ram air lid to a SLP lid? Does this require many new parts? If you have a picture that would be great. I want to change my from the stock ram air lid to a SLP, but not sure what is needed. Any help would be great.

    probably the easiest and first mod to do.. no extra parts needed besides what is sent with lid.. as easy as changing your air filter.

    Pretty much just takes a screw driver to do the work easiest mod for a f-body. Only extra step I had to do was heat up the end to get it on the MAF

    It is what you do but I never followed a document to do mine. I disconnected the battery, disconnected the maf and IAT sensors. Unscrewed the clamp screws from the bellows, removed MAF and belows. Removed stock lid. Then install the new lid on airbox assembly and insert MAF on the lid (I didn't have to heat it up). Next push the bellows on the MAF and TB and reinstall clamps. Plug the sensors back in and reconnect the negative terminal on the battery. Now you are done.

    My lid definitely needed to be heated up to fit the MAF. SLP recommends a heat gun. Trying to use a blow dryer on high just isn't the same...ask me how I know.

    i actually boiled some water in a pot and stuck the neck of the lid in the water for about 10-15 seconds then dried and MAF slipped right on..

    Jason: Don't forget to take out the MAF and hit it with CRC MAF Cleaner Spray. Then get yourself a lint free rag, soak it good with the CRC and clean the throttle body. It does make a difference.

    Got the lid on. MAF sensor is new. I bought if for 40 bucks installed.

    I did notice a little difference with the throttle response.
