    Air intake questions.

    Here is a pic of my air lid, it says SLP and under it Black wing.. I have the SLP Cold-Air Induction Package, with an K&N air filter, beside that its all is stock




    For bellow: When i ask do i need this, i mean is it worth getting.

    Other things i will be ordering.. does all look good? / Do i need it.

    http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...products_id=54 - do i need this.

    http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...oducts_id=1804 - Does this even help?

    http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...products_id=84

    http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...roducts_id=538 - Since i have the lid that has the smog hose that goes into it, do i just plug the filter on it, and that's it? Or do i ONLY need this if i get a new lid?

    I have a ls6 intake BTW.


    Thanks

    Every little bit helps. I would get the smooth bellows...you might be able to find one for better than $60 something dollars.

    I wouldn't spend my money on the MAF parts. Stocker is just fine. If you want a better flowing MAF then go with a 90mm with a FAST intake or something.

    I believe you need the filter. Not positive though...I have one on my car.

    I had a 3" Fernco and it didnt want to line up right for me. Im not sure if it needs to be 3"x? or what though.

    dont get any of the maf stuff thats just wasting money, the smooth bellows arent worth the money unless you go with the home depot style which for 7 bucks its worth it. If i were you id just save up for a full exhaust system and a stall

    I would like to see some pics as well. I may run down to the store and see for myself.
    Since it's called Fernco flexible it gives me the impression that it has to have a rough shape to it much like the original so it's,,,well,,,,flexible. If thats the case then I don't see where the gain is?????
    The whole purpose of the smooooooooth bellow was to eliminate all of the irregularities inside the hose, and smooth out the airflow as a result.

    I run a smooth bellow on one of my SS's,,,,and just haven't gotten around to getting one for my wifes car yet. Although I am willing to check into other interesting options if they are beneficial.

    I'll check out Home Depot tomorrow and see what this looks like.
