    Too floppy

    Minor issue -- installed a SLP lid a few months back and have retained the secondary air system for the time being. The inlet hose from the lid to the air pump flops back towards the engine and pretty much looks like ass hanging there. I tried a zip tie to secure the hose to the wire harness on the drivers side of the radiator, but it still flops back. Anyone ever come up with a solution, or I am just being too picky about things?

    I'm guessing you have a 98-99 lid. This is how I did mine. I used a zip tie too. Nice and secure.

    It's an '02 and it is the hose the feeds filtered air to the secondary air pump. The SLP kit includes a grommet and a short hose with a connector to attach the factory hose to their lid, circled in the picture below:

    Yeah, I've got that now. I have a 2000 SS, but the lid is a 99. I ended up getting the 00-02 hose like you have though from someone here.

    I don't have an issue with it though. You may need a new hose. It looks a bit frazzled at the connector on the lid in the pic. Maybe if it was a tighter fit that would take care of it

    The hose is actually in good condition -- you may be seeing the clamp in the picture (it's not very clear). The problem is that the hose run is simply too long. It does not look bad in the picture from this angle, but from the front it looks way out of place. I am sort of a neat freak...

    Jeff,
    I think you are being too picky. I had the same problem with mine. Cut the hose down to make it shorter. Cleans it up a little. But just remove the air system and get the codes turned off I ended up doing that and it was great!

    Yeah -- being OCD is sometimes a pain. I did not think to trim down the hose. That may tighten up the run a bit.

    I am pretty sure I can get away with deleting the air system when I do long tubes. Hopefully over the winter -- just debating as I do not want to have any problem down the road with inspections.

    If you put headers on WITH CATS you will be fine for inspection with removing the air system. BUT you must get the codes removed.

    I don't have cats on my car but I have a "special" garage.

    Why not cut a hole in the lid, get a rubber grommet, and install the hose where it is meant to go with the bracket that holds it?
