I've been thinking about making a heat shield out of the original lid.
I run the K&N drop-in with a snorkel and resonator delete, lid on. There are solid gains throughout the powerband, reasonable (non-obnoxious) sound, and great mileage. At the top of the powerband it is a few HP shy of the name-brand intakes, but below 3200 rpm it is the same or more. I'm rarely ever above that so it is perfect for me and my driving style.
