cobra- mach 1 intake

Just a quick question.... If I switched from the stock 01 cobra intake to the mach1 factory shaker style no supercharger intake would there be any power gain? Just curious

nope, no power gains, the ram air system is just for looks... well the slightly colder air might boost a bit of power but nothing really noticeable.

I disagree Spec just for my curiosity
one time ( at band camp ) LOL , I disconnected my shaker inlet , and made a few passes without it and then again with it and it ran 1.5 MPH faster in the quarter both times with the shaker hooked up ..... that proves there's a power increase , even if its just at high speed .......
the intake manifolds between the cobra's and Mach's are no different though

Re: cobra- mach 1 intake

you probably got a little colder air~ but nothing really amazing. Its not worth doing the entire process for the 2-3hp you might get. If its for looks then go for it.
