This question is for my Ef Fairmont i6........
I am wondering if a stock right angle air induction setup is better than the Fairmont ones....... Does the multi chamber larger setup of the fairmont promote better air induction or does the direct smaller surface area of the stock right angle pipe allow more air? I am asking in regards to a lightly inhanced engine setup

EF's have the same BBQ Plate intake pipework no matter what model, GLi, XR, Futura, Fairmont etc and EL's have the same Elbow style. EF intake flows better that the EL style.

Sounds right - ie. I replaced the EF intake setup with EL and was surprised to get a definitely noticeable softening of performance.
