PI intake or Autozone Dorman intake?

How can I tell on my 01 if I have the stock PI intake or an Autozone Dorman intake? I've been told I have the Dorman on it. Of course I bought it like this, but I can't tell the difference. How can I tell without having to pull it off?

I'll post some pics a little later this morning. I know they're both plastic, but the guy told me the Dorman is restrictive and I'm losing about 20 HP. That was from a guy at a speed shop here in Houston.

just make sure to list everything that could give you a jump on other people applying..besides that i'd put down that you can drive as well if your record is clean because it's easier to get a job as a driver right off the bat then just a counter person

that's what i started as...it's a cake job honestly...you deliver parts 95% of the time. so you're in a car or truck with the radio on. just always be prompt and remember to go that extra mile with commercial customers. you keep them happy and they will praise you to the GM and DM which mean you move up faster. if you do get it and ever have any questions just let me know and i'll help where i can. my goal with the company is to make it to corporate level one day

What was the dead giveaway that it's not a ford intake?

Being a driver is the best position. Very easy relaxed position. I did it for about 8 months until I became the commercial manager.
