    lid

    being the rookie that i am to ls1...i assumed my car had the stock lid. it had a ls1 motorsports sticker on the lid but i assumed that someone just stuck it on there...then i saw a pic of the stock lid online and it looks nothing like it....so i did a little diggin and found the ls1 motorsports directflo lid...and determined thats what is on my car....which is good because that was gonna be my first performance upgrade to the car and now i dont have to buy one...now i can go for the headers ...are these lids any good compared to slp or whisper?..

    There is very little difference between lids---that Direct-flo is good --I have that one on my car.
