I think there all pretty much the same performance wise. the ones with the air filter in the fender is the way to go.

Re: Cold air intake

I went with the AM, it looks just like the BBK lol and works just fine. You can really tell it is sucken better than stock, my whole car sounded better after I installed it.

I'm going to have to look into those once I get the money, first is a paint job once I get the engine back.

I'm looking into installing the Mach 1 shaker hood and ram air kit. I found a bolt on upper plenum and TB that is a Mach 1/Cobra style TB then from there I just get the shaker hood kit a Mach 1 cai, and the Mach 1 hood and I'm set. Well bigger injectors as well but I planned on that already.

Ur doing this on a gt? Your better off just getting the hood, brackets, and shaker. I'm not certain but I'm pretty sure ur tb/plenum is different. The shaker kit really is just a visual thing.

I found a bolt on TB and upper plenum that bolts right to the factory PI lower intake plenum. the TB is not a twin blade but is still an oval shape. So I can run the ram air intake from the Mach 1. All I have to do is get the cai for a Mach 1 and the kit, I don't have to buy the Mach 1 hood but I don't like the idea of cutting holes in my current hood, not my idea of a good time haha.

Lethal performance has the TB and upper plenum combo, late model restoration has the shaker hood kit and cai I want. It's going to be expensive in the long run, but it will look good and I would rather have a legit ram air intake instead of the fender style cai.

The shaker isn't a ram air. It just loosly pipes air to the filter. I agree its sweet and looks great but it really isnt that functional.

You can see the pipe from the shaker just links upto the filter. Most of the air comes from the fender.

Re: Cold air intake

Ive been told that BBk is pretty good and not that badly priced. I pretty sure theres others out there way cheaper. I have the BBK and its great but my buddy is sending me his old JLT...He says that JLT is the very best when it comes to CAI..

I never really paid attention to CAI and which Is better, but sadly I won't be able to afford a aftermarket one anytime soon.

Ok so ram air isn't correct but it still feeds cold air directly to the intake instead of it being routed through the fender. That and I'm sketchy about pulling water in through the fender cai, I've seen a buddy blow is motor because of that.

That's fine. I went with the shorter jlt rai instead of the deep fender rai, to keep the shaker functional. Its a pricey mod for sure but it looks good. Make sure you treat the shaker regularly, they fade really easily.

My bbk doesn't even clear the strut bar. It has a big rust spot where the strut touches the elbow. I might switch to a cobra strut bar.
