    Two-year old thread johno, ...
    But yes, it will fit good.

    And one of the problems with the aftermarket SLP lid was installation.
    Make sure the front lip of the lid is BEHIND the lip of the base.
    And SLP did some redesign of the lid from the old embossed-outward 'SLP', to the newer hot-stamp with white paint SLP lid.
    And the added gasket doesn't help any either. Many of the aftermarket filters had that foam gasket adder, like the K&N. Then the clips don't stay closed, & the lid rubs, etc., etc., etc, ...

    johno, where can we see photos of yer 'Black&Gold'?

    I have the same problem with it not seating well in the rear of the lid so I used a razor blade to cut the bellows to fit better then I adjusted the radiator cover so that it sits better keep the 4 bolts loose but not pulled out adjust it then tighten it down it should help some but it not perfect. hope this helps.

    if you get a smooth bellow your going to have to cut a bit off so the lid will set all the way back.

    when your lid as tight as it will be be it should have a somewhat "underbite look" that should prevent clamps from falling off too

    never had any trouble with the lid rubbing on the hood?
