Purely cosmetic and weight. Difference of ounces.

Re: JLT intake question

One has carbon fiber that belongs on a ricemobile, the other has plastic that looks like it belongs under the hood of the Mustang. Performance wise, no difference.

carbon fiber that works is fine on any car (but painted carbon fiber works better to me other than just little things)

but in this case its just looks

Re: JLT intake question

if you think the carbon look is worth the money, get it. what i've been hearing is that they all work the same with a tune.

Rumor has it carbon fiber retains heat more than plastic, although this could only make a very small difference, it's a good reason to save money and not look like you should have a shocker sticker on your car to go with a sweet carbon fiber intake
