IMO the AFR shaker looks to have the best set up. Checkout the Autoformgroup vendor threads as they are a forum vendor.

John, I'd go with AFR as well. Have you seen their set up? Actually might have a performance increase with that one. It goose necks from the throttle body into the shaker, which is where the filter is located. Very nice set up if you ask me. Its even better than routing the intake into the fender well..

The autoform set looks better for airflow etc but cervinis actual scoop looks alot better IMO.
If there wa a way to use the autoform base plate/filter with the Cervini scoop that to me wouldbe the perfect setup

x2 I love the Cervinis shaker. But I could easily deal with the AFR, its really nice as well.. One thing that would have me on the fence are the hoods. I like the Cervinis hood a lot more because the AFR is almost too flat. See below

I have a Cervini's thats not on the car yet, should be on by Spring. Got a great deal on it at Carlisle last year, and if you are near Philly you can pick it up at their factory in Vineland NJ and save the freight charges. A friend of mine who's a bodyman said it's a nice hood, heavy fiberglass not lightweight junk and I've fitted the base and bubble on the car and only a few minor issues. I will have to trim the base in two places where it's slightly hitting the injector wiring, and i did not like the breather they give you that replaces the breather hose setup from the intake to the stock airbox. I ended up running a hose to the new airbox, installing a fitting in the new airbox and putting the breather filter inside the new airbox. Makes a much cleaner more stock looking install.

I say Cervini. I saw it on RWAMSER's car at Arrington and it was pretty trick. Functional to boot.

The hood that was on Stacey David's GEARZ was the Suncoast hood. it's actually the most economically priced unit and the quality is fantastic. that's what i have on mine. i noticed you're in Philly...i'm going to be at the Area Auto Racing News Motorsports show this weekend from 1/21-1/23. check out Area Auto Racing News for info on the show

SunCoastRamAirHoods.com for info on the hood

and

I want the Danko hood, maybe sometime this year I'll be able to get it. I like the Cuda hood better than the flat one, too.

Love how clean the AFR shakers look when the hood is open. Really cleans up the engine bay.
