Gt40 intakes Opinions?

I have looked at the stickies and seen the number but what's in your opinions what's the best cobra or or explorer or tubular I found a good price one explorer intake about 200$ and not sure if it's worth the investment.. I'm not going forced induction or anything basic bolt ons for a little more but it's still just a cruzer..

I don't know the exact flow numbers. But I think they are all similar. The only problem with the tubular is it can't be ported.

They are all about the same performance wise, so it comes down to your preference. I like the more "stock" look of the explorer intake, and it's the cheapest option out of the three unless you find a killer deal on either of the others. 200 seems a little on the high side price wise but still not too bad. Maybe you can talk him down some.

But it looks so good. Lol and it's harder to find and the most expensive.

This is what she looks like. Comes with upper and lower intakes it would be 215$ when it's all said and done for with shipping.. Is that too much? It looks pretty clean..

They normally go for 100-150 around here, junk yards generally have them fairly cheap.

Re: Gt40 intakes Opinions?

Not sure about the Explorer, but I recently read an article with a Dyno test and a Cobra can be ported out to perform as well as a Holley Systemax. I'd bet the Explorer could also be ported out to the same level.

Could you tell a difference swapping out your stock one.. Was it hard and what all do you need?

Well I did a H/C/I swap so I could feel a difference. It's not hard, especially just the intake. Can't remember what is needed for just the intake.

It would probably be a noticeable difference in that case.
