Is it worth getting a Trickflow intake over my Cobra intake?

    I have a 1994 cobra W/trickflow TW heads, 1.7 rr, 73mm maf, 70mm tb,pulleys, OEM 24#injectors,190lph fp,LT headers and X, Crane 2030 cam, OEM cobra intake.
    My ? is is there that much of a power or air flow difference between my OEM Cobra intake and a trickflow intake. I'm trying to squeeze as much power as i can out of this car before i get it tuned. I'm just wondering if upgrading to a trickflow intake is worth the HP/TQ and the labor over the Cobra intake it already has.
    If so what Trickflow intake would you recommend street or track heat?

    Personally I dont think so. But you combo is different but $500-$600(included elbow) is not worth maybe 10hp if not less than what you already have.

    if you are somewhere around 300rwhp then you are good. Personally I think the cobra(motorsport)intake looks then best.

    just get your stock intake ported, it would probably be better for it than getting the trickflow

    Also it would be cheaper, since you already own the cobra. It would be helpful to talk to a expert, say maybe Fox lake or some place like it. Maybe they have some flow numbers handy.
