    SLP smooth bellow

    just wondering if the smooth bellow actually makes a difference. i installed the SLP lid/ K&N filter and noticed nothing. i just ordered the SLP smooth bellow to try it. everyone tells me that you can notice a difference with both. the lid didnt do anything. i really dont think this will either, but i guess it looks better than the stocker if nothing else

    my brother has a 02 ws6 and said he could tell a little bit on the highway. he has the volant air intake on his car. he could really tell the difference when he bought that.

    SLP bellow is WAY overpriced.
    Same thing at Home Depot for $6.

    And the smooth bellow is NOTHING more than an appearance mod. No performance.

    It is an adjunct mod, everything has a synergistic effect. It helps if you do other little things as well.

    I got it for $25 shipped so still cheaper than driving to Home Depot from where I live. No way I would have paid 65-85 for it.

    i had one. it made a BIG difference: it made my lid next to impossible to mount straight but no difference in performance
    i traded it straight up to a guy with an SS for his stock bellows. been runnin the stocker happily ever since. dont waste ur money dude

    i didnt notice a difference when i got my lid, i did the "ram air mod" if you've ever heard of that. basicly cutting some plastic crap from my air box to make it flow better. i didnt even notice to much of a difference after that either.

    Most people will not feel a 10RWHP gain.

    The dyno and track will show the gains though.

    i got the slp. my brother has the volant. the volant made more of an improvement than the slp i got. i think volant is the highest price but i would get it.

    I have the SLP smooth bellows and am going to re-install the stock one....the smooth one makes it more difficult to change the air filter. I've noticed very little performance increase - probably more from the air box & "remove the plastic" mods than anything. I wasted my $$$ on the smooth bellows.
