no...the smooth bellow is very stiff and it forces the lid to go where it wants it to go, of course I didn't think about that (my lid kept popping the clips open) until I tried to install my Volant box and it would not line up for shit. went back to the stock bellow and everything fell into place. I was considering going back to my SLP Cold Air Pac to see if it's better or worse on the dyno...the Volant looks badass and makes for a nice conversation piece, but I'm not convinced it made more power than the SLP lid and CAI...
by the by, SLP Cold Air Pac and Flowmaster 3" catback, no other mods made 313rwhp/334rwtq on my TA95 Exploder
01 R1 coming?

that's what I did, but the back of the lid kept popping out of the little slide tabs and the whole back end of the lid wasn't sealing at all. totally by-passing the filter. I was affraid to keep driving it like that. I'd fix it, and as soon as the engine torqued, the tabs would pop right back out again. So I went back to the stock bellow and it fits like a champ. I have an slp lid, MAF, and bellow and it just didn't fit right.

Hrmm... well your car might be tweaked differently then mine is. no two cars are the same even when coming off the manufacturer line....
