    The lid comes w/ a piece of weatherstripping to help seal the back of it...the weatherstrip does make it harder to fit properly though...

    Not true, my SLP lid went right on with no problems, all I had to do is push the rear tabs all the way into the base of the air box.

    I pulled the lid off and checked it out. I didn't install any weather stripping anywhere so I'm good there.

    Mine still touches the bottom of the hood right at the highest point of the neck before it goes into the MAF. I have just lived with it.

    If there were another way to address it I might, but I don't think I want to try sticking a heat gun up there and disorting the plastic.

By far, the SLP lid was the most LEAST labor intensive step out of all of my upgrades. If you had issues, you might want to consider a job as a hair stylist. This install IS quite simple. Took about an hour (just guessing; maybe less, take out the barley pop time). As far as the hair dryer thing goes, it helped. Had my bud (wife) hold the dryer for a bit; add a little attitude and bingo, it fits.

    Bottom line, the SLP lid is a nice kit. But, don't forget the smooth bellows, it all works together.
    the barley pop time!!!!

    I have the same problem on my 02 SS. Although it's too late on mine as it has worn the paint off of the hood now,,,,oh well.
    Okay, now i can relate to something. Mine wears the paint off the hood too.

    The new ones with SLp in white logo are less likely to rub hood, but may be harder to put on MAF. I'll link to some picks...look at bottom pic... http://www.ashevillecamaroclub.hostsnake.com/index.html

    Well thats the one I have,,,,and it rubs the hood. And wasn't hard to put on my stock MAF, I didn't use heat or lube,,,,,it went on with minimal fuss.

    Ya,,,,I figure the damage is done so I left it alone. Maybe sometime when I get ambitious enough to tinker with other options in this area I'll do something about it. For now it's not really hurting anything else.

    I did my last nite. Small amount of heat to slide in the MAF. No big deal. But trying to install it with the Smooth Bellows is just about impossible. I had to unbolt my rad support, install the lid/maf/smooth bellows to it and then install that big mass to the car and TB. Which really doesn't bother me too much except when everything is back together, the lid gets pushed back and the back end of the lid doesn't seal. I can stick a pinky in there. I may just go back to the stock bellows.
    oh and I also had problems installing that plastic plug in the side of the lid. I ended up poking a small hole in it with my pocket screw driver.

    You can cut a small amount of the bellow for better fit per SLP. Also, I had to cut rad support to fit all of it and get rid of the space on lid. SUcks, but be patient. Looks good when it's done...no accordian! You need pics of my hack, I mean install? Ping me.

    Well I decided to grab a beer and head out to the garage and fiddle. I ended threading two black factory looking screws(10mm head w/captured washer) into the back to corners of the lid/lower box right at the lid "fingers". That seems to be holding the lid down for a good seal to the filter. For now it looks and fits fine and I think I'll leave it.

    Sounds similar to mine. I installed the smooth bellow as well and found that it was easier to assemble the entire lid/MAF/bellow and install on the car as one unit. Only difference is mine all fit without any trimming and sealed fine.

    I wonder if my WS6 lower airbox is screwing up the angles and causing my misalignment woes. I fiddle with it some more tonite. I drilled a small holes in the plastic of the lower box and the lid "finger" and ran a screw through at both rear corners. The damn thing isn't gonna lift any more in the back.

    I think you're right. The WS6 air box sits up higher than others and could be causing some issues.
