Best EFI Intake for turbo cars?

What intake is everyone running on their cars and what results are you having with it? I have changed directions on my build and I am now going to keep my SB and go the turbo route. I have plenty of hood clearance so that isn't an issue. Let me know your thoughts and pictures would help. Thanks

TFS is good i just said holley systemax because on my old 347 build i had 4 diffrent intakes and the one that made the most power and best time at the track was the holley.the TFS R is good.i guess it all depends on what he has done to car.

I am going to build another engine for the turbo set up and I need as much info as I can get on the best set up. I am staying with a 302 block and not a windsor. The car is going to be a weekend driver and strip car so I want it to be reliable on low boost and be able to turn up the boost at the track. I am more interested in track times being good than anything else though. Thanks for the information everyone.

if you build a 351w vs your 302 its will be just as reliable.it will run the same only diffrence is that the 351w can handle alot more power then a stock 302

it may bolt right up but the ports from the lower to the upper and not even close to the same.just because it bolts up does not mean the upper intake ports are the same as the lower.the 351w truck flow ports are oval and the holley upper is not even close to oval but you are close.lol

Hey Dave, I am pretty sure my wife would kill me if I bought another toy. I am lucky enough to be able to build this car and have everything else. Keep an eye out for me some parts for this one.

I misunderstood, my fault.

If you have more time than money it is, haha. It's a lot faster to just buy a new intake and be done with it. Faulting that, you can port a truck lower to match the systemax upper.

its not that bad really maybe a total of 4 hours.i didnt it just because i have always liked the holley systemax intake and made good power with it.i have edelbrock intakes,trick flow track heat even hd a saleen intake which is the same as the holley systemax but none of them made the power the holley has.
