Default LS1 lid IAT sensor and OPTI vent location

Where do they go? The SLP lid I bought has a hole on the driver side (wrong side) of the part near the mouth, but looks too big for the IAT sensor to fit snug. What did everyone do? My opti vent I just drilled a hole in my elbow and RTVed a 90 elbow in there.

Plug that hole and have it on the back of the lid on the passenger side. Thats how the WS6 airboxes are and you should have no problem getting it to fit, you just need to make a hole for a runner grommet and press it in

I just extended my iat wiring, soldered it, Shintom wrap, corregated wrap and a grommet. Thee put 1/8 hole in my coupler for the vent line.

Drill bits wont get me the ram air setup I want, Im clearing out everyting metal in front of the radiator, and making a giant funnel from cutting out the big black plastic middle piece in the bumper right up to the bottom of the lid.

I misunderstood i thought you were gonna use the cut off wheel and the saw to move the iat sensor.
