    NO!! The lid is all you need. Put that $$ towards something else.

    I made a Cold Air to act like Fast toys(which goes all the way to the bottom of the car unlike SLP) and when moving it allows my IAT to be close to ambient!

    I have the lid and CAI. The cold air induction must help because it allows so much air flow. The space for air to come up along the radiator was about a 1/2 centimeter wide but the SLP cold air was about an inch. It looks like it will flow a lot more and did give a better throttle response.

    the best is to make your own and stick it down to where it peeks out of the bumper cover

    but fast toys is good, and volant is good also. dont have a clue about the whisper one.

    My IAT dropped when I installed my FTRA...but the actual engine temp went up about 10* because it blocks a lot of the radiator. No matter what I did I couldn't get it to drop back down..
