Default GT40 INTAKE OR TRICKFLOW

sup guys, just wanting some opinions. i am piecing together a top end kit and originally i was goin with gt40 irons and a gt40 tubular intake. i got them both, but i came across some twisted wedge heads for a decent price and i was going to sell the gt40 intake to buy a trickflow intake. iwas wondering about how much difference there is between the two. is it worth trying to sell the gt40. by the way the gt40 is in really nice shape ( best looking intake there is in my opinion).

ya i think so too, i just dont want to bottleneck everything with and intake that cant keep up with the heads. i know the trickflow flows better, i just dont know how much. if its not that much difference i will keep the gt40. like i said it is a very nice looking one.

I've also always liked the looks of tubular GT-40, anditwill flow enough on most applications IMO.

+1 gt-40 flows good for 425 horse, but port the lower and she will really ftlow.

The Gt-40 intake should flow plenty for a top-end job.

What cam are you going with? I'd go with whatever works best with the rest of your setup.
