    Has anyone taken the stock lid and snapped off the baffles and sanded it smooth? i know its not as good as a lid but its better than not having one. Did this to my buddy's Z before he got a lid. Just took some pliers and snapped them right off.
    Spaz mentioned something about that a while back, did he have to use some sort of filler after breaking off the baffles?

    No, they just snapped right off leaving a little bit of them left, with a few minutes on a sander and a dremel i think i could make one about as nice as some of the lids out there. Only problem i see with the stock one is where the air gets sent out of the lid to the maf, that bellow to the maf sucks. There isn;t as smooth a transition like a nice lid would have.

    you guys are talking about 2 different baffles. C5 is talking about the noise baffles on the sides of the lid and tater is talking about the baffles in the top of the lid.

    Wow, surprised i didn't catch that one.
    Yeah the other big bulky looking thing would have to be trashed for some other bellow.

    Thanks for clarifying that one Orion
    I'll work up some solution to the other baffle for fun later.

    I would wait for a tune until you have more bolt ons. Once you do get money and mod on top of that tune, its all shit and you have to tune it again. Try not to do something twice, but hey......what do I know

    My car didn't come with that crap
    You could just cut the hose and put a filter on it if you really wanted to

    Lid, used muffler installed maybe, home port throttle body, manual fan switch to reduce heat soak, cooler thermostat, shifter short stick=better shifting.
