Gt40 or Trickflow intake?

Gt40 or trickflow intake with a quicktime turbo setup, which one do you guys think I should run? If anybody has a pic of a quicktime kit with gt40 would you post some pics.

I wouldnt run a GT40. They are designed to make low end and stop making power around 5400 rpm. The trick flow would be better for a turbo especially. I would run a track heat since they make a ton of power to 6000rpm and still make some of the best low end power I have seen. I have a black one with less than 500 miles if you are interested.

Depends on what heads you are running.

The stock mustang heads flow very poorly, all that an intake with too big of a cross section will do is limit your potential torque output.
This is not as big of an issue on turbo cars as n/a cars, but it still makes a difference.

If you plan on stepping up to larger heads in the not to distant future going with a larger intake now (any of the TF series) could be a real cost saver though.

I like the looks of the gt40 much better, the difference between the 2 should not be to noticable with a stock motor and a quicktime turbo kit?

I agree. If you are staying with stock heads the GT-40 will work great. But if you at all plan on getting aftermarket heads just go with the trickflow now. I run a track heat intake and love it.

Don't take what I posted the wrong way. The GT40 is a very good intake even with larger heads. I switched from the TF Street Heat to a race ported GT40 lower and bone stock explorer upper on a Twisted Wedge Heads and TF Stage 1 cam engine and the car felt a lot stronger through the whole RPM band.

Not at all man. They are all good intakes. I was just saying with aftermarket heads I think the TFS will flow better than the GT-40.

It really is not going to matter what intake you run. You are over looking the fact that you have boost. No matter what both will make good power.

If you do plan on changing heads later on I would look into a rpm 2 or a system max.

^^ exactly..

If you need an intake.. i'd just get a cheap explorer gt40.. the boost will do all the work for you.

A bigger plenum helps with forced induction, depends on port alignment. Assuming you would have that sorted the TFS ...

That is what I was thinking and why I say just get whichever one you like the look of and can afford.
