I have been reading too much about how efficient (ram air ish design) our stock intake is and how steeda rigs dynos, etc. I guess I am considering my options here
The ford designers care about noise levels, emissions, mass market stuff, you could do this mod and still get an intake, this just changes snorkel stuff
