    problem with K&N filter fitting loose

    Anybody had this problem? I had a K&N in my WS6 and the filter was not tight in the air box. I could reach in through the holes and push up on it. I thought maybe the foam strip was gone that sticks on the underside of the lid but it is there. It is part#33-2118 so it should be the correct one. HELP!

    Yea it did. It shows that you put it on the lid but it is still loose. Where did you get the Holley?

    Check out a few of the sponsors on the board. Many sell it.

    The K&N that the LS1 takes was originally sized for a Jeep(cross reference it) that's why it is not an exact fit like paper or others.
