Default Intake options

Has anyone ever done a comparison of a few different intakes and seen which ones actually make power?

I might have access to a dyno soon and was thinking of a doing a few different combos over the course of a day for some real A-B results

Not necessarily specifically just on carby rubbermounts, but check out Hammer Performance, and the Dyno section here.

Plus 1 on the Hammer systems, I have the 2.25 inch offset model and it really opens up through the midrange and top end... The offset one gives knee more room also and does not look out of place at all.

Ultimately I think that's the road I'm going to take, just waiting for their CF covers to come back in stock
