I didn't like the fact that the Steeda wasn't included in that test. I've also never seen any members hit 170hp with just an intake.

I'm sure that if the two were outright compared legitimately that the Steeda would pull bigger numbers. But, and again it's just speculation, I can't see there being a difference of more than a few HP. Both units look good and function well. There used to be a bunch of people cracking their MAF housing, but maybe the instructions were re-written because I haven't heard much of it as of late.

I would personally choose the Steeda, but ultimately either one work well and are at the top of the power-gain spectrum.
