I purchased some 3/16" thick weatherstripping and put it in place of the 5/16" weatherstripping. I also gave it room from the lids walls were the grooving is in it. It went on a lot better. Its still a little high, but much better than before. I figure that if I found some 1/8" stripping it would be even better. I buttoned it up fired the engine un and can feel airflow sucking from the filter and not around the sides. Maybe we should make a sticky on how to seal one of these lids up. When I change the air filter I will do a better job and cut the stripping in 45 degree angles. I just wanted to make sure the car was in running order come 6 am tomorrow.

Is the front edge of the lid now BEHIND the lip on the bottom like Scott mentioned?
