Air intake comparison/1Q....

Lookin around for a cold air intake and found this and thought it looks familiar, so I went here and it looks to me that they are the same. I just don't know the shipping from mac, but would have to be real low to beat ebay price.

Also, wondering if it would make a difference getting the intake above when I have a cone (3.5" inlet) on my moded stock box. The Mac intake looks like a bigger filter........

Anyone know how that would work if I swaped a moded stock box that has a cone on it to a mac intake sytem? Would it be a significant difference?

two things, one that is the exact same picture but they are not calling it a Mac intake, so they are robbing that pic and may not be on the up and up, and two the smoother intake pipe in itself will show some increases since the air will not be slowed down so much by the ribs

That was what I was thinking with the new intake system vs. the custom filter with the ribs and bend in the intake pipe. Yeah, taking that pic is definetly robbing............ I ended up ordering a Mac but from a different guy on ebay that said it was a Mac, felt better when they told you it was a Mac, and it was a lil cheaper Get it Thurs. and I'll slap it on real quick and let everyone know how it works with that efan and pulleys.......
