    Should allow even more air to flow into the engine if its needed. i cant see it hurting anything.

    There was another post about this situation. Basically what became of it is, the turbulance between the two intakes canceling out the gain in hp is a myth. The more air you can get into your engine the better. Also, you don't have to bother with putting in that metal "cold air" box. It's not going to make any difference in the temperature of the air that will be forced into the filter. Just cut the holes in the plastic under the filter for a "free ram air mod"

    Is a lid and filter worth it?

    Your ram air hood doesnt add any hp anyway.

    The SLP might not make a difference alone but if you get fast toys "ram Air" extention it should. I know my home made ducting w/ scoop made a difference from the free mod.

    2002T/A guru is right, the ram air hood doesnt really do anything from the factory. The only thing I could think of to give it a real ram air effect, was remove that huge stock inner rain baffle, removed the front honeycomb nostrils, added SLP lid, and then purchased a styrofoam plastic piece(from the BG kit) that mounts & seals the airbox opening to the hood opening.
    It's an extremely tight/snug fit that directly connects the outside air to the airbox only. It also doesnt allow ANY of the hot engine air to enter airbox, whatsoever. Oh yeah I also plugged the 3 holes found on the ram air part on the underside of the hood with 3 rubber grommets- so no air would leak out in these places, before it reached the airbox.

    And that folks is true ram air, the setup form the factory does nothing at all but make you pay 3k more.

    I wouldnt say the Ram Air does nothing on the WS6 Trans Am. You get 15-20 HP with it and it looks really nice. That is a fact. If it did nothing then there would be 0 gain on the dyno. Science proves that there is a gain. Now is it substantial.... No. That I agree with. I still opt to have the Ram Air. It hurts nothing and it in my opinion completes the T/A.

    Are you guys saying that the stock airbox is exactly the same for a non-WS6 and a WS6? I was under the impression that the non-WS6 breathed from the slit under the lid and the WS6 breathed directly from the ramair holes on the front of the car. Again, bear with my ignorance, LS1's are a little unfamiliar to me, but I want to learn as much as possible about them before buying one.
