Leave it off. Most experience slight fuel mileage increase.

Although since the newer s&b kits have. Removeable plug in air box. You could remove the plug and replace plastic lid.

My vote is leave lid off. Mine has been off for almost 50k miles

Had mine on for 20,000 and have had it off for the last 10,000. I really haven`t noticed much of a difference either way

I tried both ways, no difference in mileage, maybe a little more sound. I figured the shield may keep out some under hood temps, but not very likely. Sure does look nice with it on though, and allows me to spray the dust off the motor with out covering the filter.

I have my lid removed and noticed the intake temp getting up to 125-130 while sitting at red lights, but while moving the temp stays at the ambient air temp. I have not checked the intake temp with the lid on though, so I have no comparison.
