Default How Much Horsepower - Just got a COBRA INTAKE MANIFOLD

I ordered a cobra upper and lower intake manifold , I still have time to change my order i think lol

So my question is what is the best intake manifold to go with

My current Mods : H - pipe - Flowmaster - No Cats - , BBK CAI ,

I ordered a 76mm Throttle Body - And A C&L 76mm MAF

So with theses modds and a Cobra Uppler an Lower , What would be my power gain

And should i go with a TRICK Flow upper and lower .. instead of Cobra

why do you need such a big throttle body? you have no where near enough motor for that big of a throttle body. The biggest you should go is like 65mm at this point.

92fox, are you sure you arent confused with the tb size? nobody makes a 76mm tb. 65mm is the biggest you need with your mods

If you can change order. Get rid of the c&l. I bought one for another fox and it was crap.
