Agreed, 15-20, to get the best performance out of that intake I would get a bigger Maf.

I think a 70mm TB is too big for what you need. A 65mm would be better. With that Maf You might be seeing 20-25 HP, depending on how your car runs now.

I would just get the intake, TB, and Maf then take it for a tune and you can see numbers as high as 25hp

The big deal on the cobra/gt-40 intake manifold is the lower manifold.

Supposed to have MUCH better flow distribution to each individual cylinder.

You wont see a huge gain till you get new cylinder heads
but it will make those new heads scream when you do replace them.

I am not seeing the TB on the ebay auction...is that what you are saying.

is the 73mm MAF a good size for the 65mm TB?

with the tune...I know with my L i had to get it tuned for freakin everything! I have the A9L comp in my GT and was wondering if I could get away without tuning it yet with this set-up, I know i won't get as much gains but will it still run ok?
