    yes mine did benefit. However the more you mod the more benefits you will reap from the lid up to a point.

    i dont have the lid yet but from what i have read a lid is a lid basically so just buy the cheapest one and make sure it seals properly

    You have sealed box CAI as an option too if you want something a little different than most.

    Yes it will benefit. Actually a must before any other mods. Whichever the best deal you find is the one you should buy. They all do pretty much the same thing. (I have a Whisper lid, great piece) Skip the K&N filter. No HP gains there. Use a paper one.

    The new SLP lids are supposed to have been redesigned a bit to help eliminate that issue. Haven't seen anyone post up any actual proof to that yet tho.

    Look my slp lid came as a package it is the new lid. it does not sit flush in the back. It is an SLP filter and Smooth bellows. Install???????? I can read directions very well. Did my own exhaust and will do my own head and cam package. I am in medical scool so to say my install is wrong is highly unlikely. I will PM you the photo's when I get a chance. May be a week or so due to schedule.

    Maybe the SLP lid is designed with an aftermarket filter in mind. When I put mine on it didn't fit right, but then I remembered to take the foam ring my K&N came with off my stocker and stick on there and it fit snug afterwards.

    If it doesn't fit snuggly in the back it's because of the Smooth bellow.
    I've seen it on several cars that the smooth bellow inhibits the lid from sealing correctly.
    Put the stock bellow back on and you'll be fine.
