I have a stock 98 EL wagon and a donor parts car with this type intake system, which is better...do i keep the single tube setup or use the dual tube unit like in this pic ?

Tests show the Dual intake runner flows better than the single EL elbow type.

I have tried both, the EL intake tube performs better agaisnt the stock EF intake tube at light-medium throttle but at full throttle there is no difference. You can cut the bell mouth off the EF intake inside the airbox all it does is make it rev better in neutral, driving wise does't do s**t..

If you had an after market camshaft etc on your engine I would go the EF intake with the internal snorkel cutoff. Got to let the engine breath..........

This was interesting,

Contrary to popular opinion, J.M.M. says the EF Falcon’s divided passage induction pipe between the airbox and throttle gives more power than the larger, single-bore pipe used on the EL and AU. A fabricated 3 inch mandrel pipe is necessary only for engines making more than 140kW at the rear wheels. Gains also depend on the type of headers and exhaust system used.

Frankly, I reckon the old log manifold works great.......what can I say...150 rwkw.
