Turbo Intake Recommendation

I am in the process of building a 5.0 twin turbo street car and I need an opinion on which intake to use. The motor is a 331 stroker; victor Jr heads, 8.7:1 compression redline at 6200 rpm, 14-16 psi boost. I am looking to make 750-800 HP at the fly. I want a plenum type intake vs. a box type; although I have heard that the TFS Box R is good. I noticed that the N.M.R.A. guys are using a lot of Holley systemax-2 intakes on their turbo cars? What do you guys think? Thanks Jim.

Why not an rpm2 intake to match your heads. I use it and it's a good intake. Good luck.

The Holley is probably the best, but they have port alignment issues. I bought mine backin in 2002, so maybe they fixed that. I had to add some epoxy to the roofs of the intake ports to match up to my AFR heads.

The best choices are the Systemax and Rpm 2. You can't go wrong with either one.
