Well I bought a lid with 2 k and n filters from a buddy of mine locally but after I installed this unknown brand lid, it fit horrible. So yesterday I ordered a SLP lid and white hurst ball shift knob from WS6store. I will post up some pics when I get everything installed.

SLP is a high-quality material. That said, mine fits kind of awkward in the front which causes on of the clips to pop off all the time.

I ran TSP lids on my older cars, fwiw.

Well no matter what it will fit better then the lid on it now. None if the edges match up, doesn't sit flush anywhere, but I know most people are happy with them. But now I'm gonna try and start saving for headers haha. I try and save and end up buying something else!

Got my lid and shift knob put in yesterday. Here are some pics. I love the knob, and how short the shifter is. I considered putting the stock stick in but I have grown to like this.

I'm liking the zip tie in the shift boot! It gives it a more refined yet simple look

Thanks. I am gonna get another zip tie and move because it certain positions I hit it with my hand, and hard shifting, it hurts more the you would think!

...you realize you could have turned the boot inside out, tied it, then pulled the boot down over the tie? Check my shifter:

i had this problem with my SLP lid for first couple weeks i had it but then i played around a little and got it seated on the air box properly and it never popped again.

No need to pull the stick, all you do:

- remove the knob
- CAREFULLY in clip the boot
- pull the boot up until its inside out with the opening just below the threads
- zip tie the opening under the threads
- pull the boot back down

End result should have the threaded portion poking out the boot while the boot itself clings to the stick below the threaded portion. Ill undo my boot later this morning for pictures.

Scuffed portion is Gorilla tape used to prevent the boot from slipping (gets lightly tacky when warmed)


Clips I warned about. Carefully press inward on them to unhook from the console. If it breaks get the metal replacement from WS6store. Stock is brittle plastic



Now here's the trick. Slide the boot down inside out and zip tie it.




As you can see, broke a clip just now. :/


Clip the boot back in, tuck everything back where it should be and voila!


And since Trewyn likes to drool on all the cars, the patient as of 1030ET 11/19/12:



Yeah, I know she neds a bath..
