    AFAIK they won't fit under the stock hood plus it's not worth the expense.

    I bought mine from GM Parts Direct. I have an ASCD ram air hood with an aftermarket lid and also bought the factory "Ram Air" by Pontiac decal to put on the lid when I ordered my factory lower air box. Everything fits no problem.

    your reason for the ws6 air box? if its performance, i wouldn't do it. you will not have a significant gain from switchin from the stock box to the ws6. . . i would recommend goin with a volant or k&n fipk

    well its arguable what would give you significant hp gains . . . but i would look into the volant, k&n fipk, ssra, or ftra. imo, i like the volant the most. but like i said, you may get a couple hp out of any of these, or you may get 10.
    since you already have a lid, the ssra or ftra might be what your lookin for. that way your not replacing your slp lid.
    or keep what you got and spend your money elsewhere . . .

    Just do a free ram air and clean your filter every week. Wish i never did it. Althought it does supply plenty of air.

    I had cut the bottom out of my lower airbox and enjoy it fine. Only reason I have a ws6 lower airbox is that my slp liid from ebay shipped with it for $60. That was a pleasant surprise

    I love seeing that huge opening when the hood is open. At the LS1 Picnic last year, I was parked next to Spaz and the WS6 airbox completely stands out when sitting next to a regular air box (no offense intended, Ryan )
