    Just installed SLP lid on LS1, quick question

    Ok so I just installed SLP lid on my WS6, I notice the extra power, but I also notice when I first turned it on that the idle was very low, but quickly picked up. I notice that every time I accelerate then put it into (N) the RPMs fall well below 1 almost feels like the car is about to shut off but it does not, is this normal? When I was removing the MAF I dropped it by accident but did not see any damage to the small sensors. I have an M6 so I am not sure if that makes a difference?

    A lid itself will not make the car behave like that. You know anyone you with the same type of car you could trade mafs real quick with?

    Shouldnt be a problem. Where did it idle before u installed the lid. Just make sure you didnt break/chip anything. I agree just swap MAF and see if it works. MAF is very sensitive.

    Yeah I think I might have damaged the MAF the car is pretty much stock so I think it idle at was around or righ before 1000. Funny I turned on the car again but did not notice the problem the car is idling right before 1000. My brother has a '98 z28 and his idles right at the 1000 mark.

    Computer MIGHT have to re-adjust. See how it goes for a few days. If your still worried, just let her loose next time your on the highway. If it hessitates/acts weird then I am willing to bet $ its the MAF.
