Well for noise and letting it breath. I was just wondering if it fits and how safe it is to do?

I believe it fits as others on here have done. You can always just take the lid off your stock air box though.

True I thought about doing that but is it safe to do it? Would I lose mpg or get turbo lag or anything like that?

I put the RS air box cover on my car, and at the same time replaced the stock intake elbow with a smooth silicone one. It looks great.

I went from having the lid off, sound is about the same, looks way better. The lid off looked weak to me after a while.

Neat mod for under $50

I did it... Not sure if it did much, but I also did the snorkel... And having the lid off with a snorkel is worthless. Now it is only partially worthless ;). My main goal was to keep noise as I wanted to go back to paper as I've heard too many issues with the high flow filters... And our paper filters are actually pretty good. Long story short... Can't really hear it over my DP/CBE... And a full lid would probably be better with the snorkel.

All that to say... Do it if you want to! It's certainly better than lid off.
