A kind gentlemen - who is not big dogs, or affiliated with them sent me a big dogs cobra intake that has been ported. I’ll be replacing the box r intake on the car temporarily to see the difference.

I won’t get into the pissing contest, really here as a third party to make a comparison. Here are some pics of it compared to a factory explorer intake. All measurements are in mm.

This will be a strict a to b comparison deal. I’ll look at fuel flow and dragy times to see which one works the best. Engine is a woody built 347 with a f1r blower. Any ideas on which will come out on top?

If anyone wants any other pics or measurements, please Let me know and I’ll oblige if I can.

the small one, 75 I think.
As I said previously, "testing" with a blower will prove nothing.
Nothing? We waste are money running the box r or similar with a supercharger?

I think you dont understand my point.

And yes, it very well might be a waste of money buying a Box R on some combinations. That is basic.
no matter the result, you will have something negative to say about the big dog intake. That I understand.

I do too understand. There are quite a few here that have negative things to say but it was all crickets when I had my lower ** up by someone else. Funny how that happened huh. 😆
I hear you, your **** was screwed.

I offered up a tmoss lower in this post but there was no interest. In previous posts I asked Tom if he wanted to include one of his intakes in a comparison since he had so much to say about the big dog intake in previous posts and he said no.

i have never had a big dog intake (came close to ordering) so I have no allegiance to anybody. His work does look nice for the price. i have seen no one who can come close to his prices.

hopefully someone will compare a na combo with a Systemax or similar, but right now all we got is this comparison Which according to some means nothing because there is a supercharger.

hell I’ll do it, big dog, sell me a stage 3 explorer and I will compare it to a basic hci 302 at the track and dyno.

You never proposed anything real to me in a PM or otherwise about how to move forward and who was paying for waht did you? Maybe think about why we would pass on that. Who's paying for what? If you want to bash me, then have a leg to stand on. How about that.........
I never once bashed you, you said no And that is what i said.

if you are talking about my response to 945.0’s post, I never mentioned you, I said his intake was strewed. I know you didn’t screw it up, it was your son.

to be clear, I have not bashed you.

screwed not strewed
