okies people... another one for you all... i was cleaning my parts ready to paint and i noticed my intake wasnt tickford stamped... so i picked it up and compared it to a tickford one that i got for free as its got a hole in it from a broken fan belt (some fibreglass will solve that ;) )

but its completely different. the blue one (unknown) has a slightly bigger mouth but once its an inch or so inside its pretty much the same.
i wanted a tickford one so now im not too happy

which one is better in your opinion?

IMO i like the tickford one as its going in a boxcar so i think the straight lines suit it more

I cant really tell. If you are going to use the tickford one. Use sticky tape to cover the hole. That should do the job for now untill you get around to fixing it. Mach sure its not s**t sticky tape. lol

soulfire, that blue one looks like an el-gt one, they wernt stamped with a tickford logo, on the other hand the black one looks like an au xr one, i cant remember which one is which, one has a tighter bend and a wider mouth to clear the au's radiator hose.
