Ok so I came across this thing I've never heard of before called a vortec cyclone. It's like a little bladed piece of metal that helps the air circulate in the intake tube once you put it in there if you've never heard of it like me. On their site they have like a billion reviews of people that said it helped their gas mileage and gave more horsepower so I figured for $39.99 why not? Well I emailed the guys because I was concerned that they only had GT intake tube sizes and I explained that cobras have twin bladed TB instead of single 75mm. Therefore the stock intake tube is alot wider than the GTs circular shaped tube. Then the guy said
"Our database shows that the '96 Mustang comes in two engine configurations - a 3.8L V6 with a 70mm hose and a 4.6L V8 with a 75mm hose, both of which would use our medium size unit. We're not sure what you mean by a twin bladed throttle body, but our unit should fit in your stock hose with no problem."

So does anyone have a good picture of the stock air intake so I can explain to this guy what the intake tube to a twin blade looks like?

hahaha dont waste your money on that. it is a waste of money and i personally think it is a scam. why would you put something in your intake to restrict airflow? the thing that makes more horsepower is mor air in and more air out. getting this would be like going from a 62mm throttle body to a 50mm throttle body in theory. Get what im trying to say?
