New SLP Lid

This is a discussion on New SLP Lid within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I just ordered a SLP Lid and K & N filter for it. Any tips or cautions for installing them?...

    Pretty straight forward. A couple drops of liquid dishwashing soap makes the IAT sensor and grommet come out easier if needed. Rinse and dry thoroughly before reusing.

    If you have the smooth bellows you may have to trim it back so it will fit correctly! Other then that the maf is a bitch to fit into the lid so like he said some lube helps everything. But just remember to wipe it off.......

    Thanks, I will be installing it on my 99 WS6-TA. Anything particular about the 99 WS6 that I should watch for?

    I had the same problem, I had to take a dremel and coax the MAF in.

    Getting that MAF in is a real pain in the ass. I ended up using a rubber mallet to hammer it into the new lid.

    if you use a hair drier and blast the end of the lid you can squeeze the maf in also.

    I didn't have that much of a problem getting the MAF into the new lid. I had a bit of a time getting it out of the Stock lid, though.

    Yup, heat up the plastic with a hair drier. Makes it way easier. Same goes for putting it back on.
