    I have a friend that has the SLP and he said the lid was always popping off, so he put a wood screw in to fix it. I plan to go the K&N CAI route myslef, but some people claim that due to wind variances it will hamper preformance if you have the ram air hood. To me, anything is better than stock.

    I purchased the SLP CAI kit. K&N filter, lid, and SS air diverter. Then I blocked off the Ram Air part due to turbulence. It works great.

    It pulls colder air up from the bottom. I blocked off the Ram Air part because of air turbulace.

    i think the factory ram air works exceptional, you can pull cold air from under by cutting the box lid which the air filter sits on, its one of those free mods

    You can also remove the baffles in the hood.
