    My SLP AIR hole plug

    Reading around i found different ways to plug the hole in the side of the lid for the AIR hose. Here was my fix that only cost me $1.39 at lowes for a 2 pack of 7/8 nylon hole plugs. It was cheap and looks somewhat decent.

    Looks good, I'll have to tell my friend about yours - he has one of those gold expansion plugs in his.

    since you put the size needed and place you found them then you get a sticky.

    The hole plug is in the hardware section at lowes in all the pullout drawers.

    As for the coupler it is a fernco sewer coupler. Also found at at either home depot or lowes. I had to trim a little on bit of both edges to make it work though.

    That hose connects directly to the air pump. If you do race style (air delete) Long tubes theres no reason for the air pump anymore. You can go in and take it out. If you want to keep it you can cut down the hose and get a breather for it.

    I did this exact same thing. Got a plug from Lowe's because I have the same SLP lid and removed my air pump.

    I'll have to grab some pics.

    I'm the same way, although my emission stuff including the AIR pump is deleted in the tune, I left everything hooked up as if it were working.
    So I never needed the plug, I left the entire hose intact with pump and all.

    I just couldn't see taking it off and having another box full of 4th gen parts laying in the garage
