Thanks man, yes that is exactly what I'm looking for. But should I go cobra or performer? Which would be better?MKoebra95 said:For your stated intended use, I think a Cobra/GT40 intake or a Performer would be best. They have longer intake runners that will produce torque lower in the RPM range which is more desirable IMHO for the street part of your mostly street street-strip car.

If you want impressive HP #'s or want more of a race car, and don't mind loosing a little of the low end grunt, you'll need to make the torque higher in the RPM range and thus a short(er) runner intake will be best.
Let me put out from the get go that the Cobra isn't the end all be all in intakes. Before everyone bashes the $hyte out of it rightfully saying it is an old design and not conducive to big power #'s, look at what DarkPony has done with his car (12's on stock heads and cam). His big "power maker" is a Cobra upper and lower intake. One other thing with the Cobra, you won't need to creatively rearrange your hood liner or make other "minor" changes to get it to fit 100%. I'm not saying all aftermarket intakes have problems with fitment, but there are a lot of stories on here about "how much do I need to grind on the valve covers with X intake" or "why won't my hood close with Y intake" etc.
Hehe thanks man. Yep I wanna rev!MKoebra95 said:by the way, spending $300-$500 on a Cobra (or other) intake will help your car rev better and give your GT some of the 96+ Cobra's revving ability at the cost of 1 months payment on a newer Cobra. (I'm pulling this from one of your other revent threads).
I think the elbows look cheesy also...MKoebra95 said:
2. It is made specifically for your car: ie it has the intake neck built on it. It is my humble opinion, that the aftermarket neck that is required to get all aftermarket intakes except the 94/5 Cobra to work with our cars looks like a cheesy after thought. That is my opinion, and I will say that if I were building a high-winding, high-power sn95, I'd go with something other than the Cobra and take the "hit" on the looks.
I agree. If I was going to buy a new intake, I would get the Performer or the Holley Systemax.MrGreen94GT said:If buying new, it seems like a better deal than a Cobra. Buying used would make things a little different.
An extrude-honed Cobra intake will outflow a Performer.94Fauxbra said:performer...maybe in the future youll need a intake that supports higher rpm..with the performer you can upgrade it too an RPM...whereas the cobra can be made into an interesting flower pot or perhaps a really cool Habitrail for your gerbils.
