I'll be interested to see what kind of power it makes... I have nearly a similar configuration with the exception of a gt40 tubular intake up top

If you don't have the matching heads and cam, then you won't notice much if any improvement.

The intake alone isn't going to make much difference without the heads that are matched to it. The GT40's flow a bit better than stock, but the Trick Flows, flow a lot better.
If he's going to the GT40 from his stock engine, then to him it will seem like a big improvement, but if you put one on your car that has been running the GT40 stuff already, I'm afraid you will be disappointed and you will probably lose some low end power.

Well, didn't the 93 Cobra(GT40) make 260HP or something like that? The trick flow top end kit is 350, what other numbers would be needed for comparison?

I guess I wanna see flow numbers between the gt40 and the trick flow intake. I know the heads are better as well as the cam but I'm just talking about the intake only

I know the primary hindrance to makin power on a stock motor is the heads. After that, you go with the intake next, then injectors and start working your way to the air filter

I think we have flow charts for popular heads and intakes in the useful sticky thread.
