    SLP Lid fitment problems....

    I've been wanting to put my original MAF sensor back, it has an SLP Maf sensor right now but I cant fit my original maf sensor with the SLP lid... I dont know if the lid shrank while it was attached to the SLP MAF sensor but the opening doesnt fit the original (MAF Sensor)..

    Take a blow dryer to it heat it up real good and you shouldn't have a problem getting it on there, it is common for this.

    I kinda tried that with blower dryer but I let off because I was afraid to mess up the sensor thats on the SLP lid... Do I have to take it off or the heat from the blow dryer wont do anything to it..?

    Usually you heat it up without the maf sensor on there, and if you think about the senser itself it is under the hood of the car where the engine normally heats up to 210 degrees lol. But I just used the blow dryer to heat up the lid first then squeezed it in there.

    I know I was talking about the little sensor thats inside the slp lid... U know which one I'm talking about? not the MAf sensor...

    Yea the one right beside the mouth that connects to the lid, it shouldn't affect it at all. But if you are worried about it messing up then just take it off and put it back in when you get your maf on there.

    Yeah, that mother fits on there TIGHT! I lubed it up with a little dish soap, and heated the heck out of it with a hair dryer. I wished I had a heat gun availalbe, that would have done a much better job.

    As tight as that thing fits, I'm thinking if I ever sell the car, the lid is going with it!
