    Now I can understand your anger toward them. If I buy an SLP lid I'll probably order it through Summit. Mr. Luos, where did you get those awesome WS.6 headrest covers?

    +1 on that. I have seen several videos of it with lts and its pure popping. Loudmouth should be avoided if you ever want headers. I just got it but since I'm about to go to college for a good planned 8 years I won't have money for them anytime soon. lol


    Like I said before though, the slp lid sometimes rubs and has white marks on the top. Not functionally bad, but not good looking. Just buy another brand from one of our sponsors. ws6store.com has good service and prices. Check out what they have.

    SLP internal parts are crap and don't even fit half the time. I bought the HD oil pump and spent over an hour trying to shim it so that the timing cover would fit. The UD pulley looked nice but was a total bitch to get in.

    besides the basic bolt on you really should get a good set of subframe connectors. UMI makes a great product.

    What do the subframe connectors do and how much do they cost?

    Tie your uni-body car together. Basically making it a full frame car.
    That way it doesn't twist in the middle.

    options...

    It seems that I should stay away from the SLP lid. I could either get a granatelli lid, an slp smooth bellow, and am Amsoil EA filter or a complete Cold Air Intake such as Volant. What's the best choice for the money?

    The SLP lid is one of the 2-3 parts I would order from SLP again.
    Nothing wrong with the Whisper Lid either.

    I avoid Granatelli like the plague.

    Smooth bellow can be had from Home Depot for $6. Rather than the INSANE $55 SLP wants for a part that doesn't fit without cutting, get a Fernco fitting. Since you have to cut either way....pick up a 3" to 3" Fernco fitting (plumbing section) from Home Depot......if you have a stock throttle body.



    As for oil filters...I let my built stroker flow through a Delco filter.
    For air filters...I use a K&N air filter. Paper air filter, or a clean-able air filter. Anymore, you can't go wrong.

    Thanks man... I was looking at that SLP smoth Bellows thinking "I could cut one of these to fit from some sort of pipe and save 50 bucks." I like the looks of the SLP lid and it's 20 bucks cheaper than the Granatelli. Think I will go with it and an amsoil filter.
