Default 94-95 Cold Air Intake Suggestion?

I want honest opions on the best cold air intake to run. Is the stock one worth a crap? I've read that the chrome one's (BBK, MAC) suffer from "heat soak". I've been recommened once to run the Moroso? But, I read an article saying the Moroso was OK I want to get the best one, and as wondering everyone else was having luck with.

Thanks!

The stock Cold Air Intake, with a good filter such as K & N installed. does perform well.

That is my understanding as well. This was the main reason why I chose the Moroso kit instead.

I have read similar articles and tend to agree. Compared to the stock setup with a good K & N filter, I really don't think you see that much of a performance gain, if any, with either of them. Using the chrome style, such as MAC or BBK might even be a step back, if you consider the possibility of "heat soak". I replaced my stock air box setup with K & N fillter with a Moroso more for looks than performance. As far as design, functionality and performance goes, I think the Densecharger Cold Air Kit is probably the best one out there on the market today.

Here is a link to an active thread on our forums that should help answer your question about which Cold Air Intake is best: Best Cold Air Intake?

Hope this is of some help

Fenderwell Cold air intakes don't work well at all. Two reasons...
1, The "pretty chrome" insulates the heat and pretty much nullifies the "Cold air" concept.
2, the 90 degree turn right before the MAS usually throws the reading off on larger MAS units. I've had customers cars Dyno'd using stock box w/ K&N panel and then the Cold air fender intake. No difference in HP or Torque. One thing we found at the shop was that by using an aluminum elbow tube(like C&L's), an under the hood conical filter, and a custom fabricated aluminum filter box shield, we got more HP and torque that any of the fender cold air intakes. Try both the underhood and fenderwell intakes if possible and get the car dyno'd after each one, if possible. Different combos work for different situations. I'll try to upload a pic of my intake setup soon.
