Hey Guys,
I have read a lot about the K&N air filter and usually a thought about cutting the lid to allow more air in. Pulled mine off last night to install the new filter. Noticed the lid is metal suprised I figured it would be plastic. It appears the previous owner might have already cut it. it currently has one big opening of about 3" by 13". Is that how they come stock and more opening is required? or has someone already beat me to it. I also notice, when I was cleaning the throttle body that it appears to have that air foil thing. a piece of light alloy bolted on the front of the housing or mouth leading to the butterflys.

3x13? Yep. It's either a replacement assembly, or they cut it open.

Leave the airfoil. Although it's a waste of money to buy one. I have seen dyno results of picking up 1-2 hp. :)

Re: That looks wider top to bottom....

lt1vert looks like that picture will prompt me to do some cutting. I guess the idea is to let more air enter. By the way really like what you did with the outside of the car. I hope my car finally hits the paint shop this week. It keeps getting delayed. The graphics guy keeps trying to sell me on two stripes that together make the width of your stripe. Then he mentioned stripes down low between the wheels. Sounds too much like a ford to me. any opinions on this are welcome, but it kind of bothers me. Obviously, he will do as I say. Thanks for the picture. Roger
Two stripes can look cool..... on Vipers. Just one on a Vette. :thumbsup:
