Re: Which intake would be better?

They both look crappy but bigger one would be better. Provided its bigger all the way along - the smallest diameter is usually the point of restriction..

I was also thinking that the bigger one was better but the bigger one came off an EA where as the smaller one is off an ED. So if the bigger one is better why would Ford go backwards and use a smaller one on EDs?

Re: Which intake would be better?

Go to an exaust shop and muy a 90degree mandrell bend, then cut it to the size you need.
It should cost you about $30.
