Hey fellas,

I posted over on svtp with no luck so I figured I’d try here where the home of the lightning is.

I’ve got a 99 Svt lightning with 11k miles. It is bone stock with the exception of a flow master cat-back and a JLT “cold air” that looks out of place IMO.

I want a stock air box that’s in mint shape to match the truck.

I’ve had a few people offer me a 01+ box with piping and hardware.

Will the newer boxes fit my 99 and it’s stock MAF?

Thanks!

99/00 have a 80 mm MAF. 2001 up have a 90. The airbox bolts to the MAF. So it's likely the 2001 up have a larger hole where the MAF fits tot he box.

Just buy it and repaint the lid flat black. No one but you will know the difference.

I’d go with the ‘01-‘04 box and 90mm MAF/tune for safety anyway (truck might already be tuned for the 90mm MAF)

Right but I’d then have to get it tuned in addition. I have my doubts the truck would gain anything if that were the case. I could be wrong.

99/00 came at 360 hp. 01 up came with 380 hp. Supposedly the 20 hp gain was from the MAF alone. I don't think anyone's ass will feel 20 hp. Unless it's a finely tuned ass.
