    have you ever changed your own air filter? If you have then you can change your lid

    wow that looks really good. The hardest part about putting the lid on is getting the MAF in there. Other than that its easy. Where did you get the FRC's?

    the install isnt bad on the covers after you have done them a couple times you get the hang of it. take the tape off the fuel lines, move the two main connectors for the coil harnesses down and they should go right on.

    If the lid don't fit easily over the maf take a hair dryer to it and warm up the hole a bit that will make it slide right on. Mine took 15 minutes just because I sat there like a monkey screaming what I was doing wrong.

    The instructions from SLP are really detailed, but not in a good way. I really didn't think it was as complicated as they make it out to be.

    x2 just do it when your engine is still warm....100x easier and you dont have to be a bodybuilder

    Posted a pic of the lid installed (it's an SLP btw). It was an easy install, but it didn't fit well. I got it as tight as I could but it still seems a little loose for my liking.

    Yeah I did use a hairdryer. It was still tough to get in but a vice helped. I actually had the most trouble getting that piece of shit rubber plug in on the side of the lid (not the IAT sensor in the neck, that was easy).

    the new slp lids dong come with any thing for a gasket so it would be a good idea to go to a hard where store and get 1/2 windo fome and make it so it dont leak
