Ws6 air box

Does the ws6 lower air box ONLY fit the ws6 hood?

I have a spare ws6 high rise box laying around. Currently I have the stock low rise, with a k&n filter and slp air lid. Will I be able to fit the high rise box under my sleek beak hood? What about a raptor hood?

To answer my own question: No.

This is the stock lower air box for non ram air cars.

This is the ws6 ram air high rise lower air box.

The ws6 box raises the lid up just enough to keep the hood from closing completely.

Correct, you need some form of after market hood. I have the WS.6 airbox and hood along with an MTI lid and it BARELY closes.

What hood do you have? Factory ws6? Or aftermarket
