Default a few lid questions for you guys

I got the SLP lid for 00-02 F-Bodies, and I have a few question for you.

1. Did you plug the hole on the side of the lid that connects to the AIR! hose? If you did, what did you plug it with? Or did you just connect it to the hose.

2. I already got the smooth bellow, and should I instal it since I already got it? Or leave it stock?

3. Previous owner installed a throttle body spacer, and I was wondering if everything will fit right with it on. Or will I have to remove it also? Or will I have to remove it if I put on the smooth bellow, but it can stay if I leave on the stock bellow?

Thank you for your time.

I'd just remove the TB spacer, I've never hear of anyone gaining any hp/trq with one on our intakes, plus the GM or SLP bellow will fit better with it removed.

remove the spacer, plug the hole with whatever and hope you didnt waste money on the smooth bellows. it provides no gain whatsoever. its up there on the list of bullshit mods like the spacer is.

They have some good rubber grommets at Home Depot in various sizes to plug the lid hole. I just used some super glue and glued it into the hole.
