Garage
word on the street is its a LOT less constrictive than the stock tube and its a better material to keep heat out...so better air flow and cooler air

"The FPU removed the indents in the stock pipe and the squeeze on the 90
by
the TBI and
replaces it with a true mandrel bent 3" system
That allows 24% more air to flow though the intake.

So yeah the FPU is more than bling....as it also increases your lower"
Those are the numbers lampoon gave me

I purchased option 3 and questioned the FPU for over a year. I have to say I don't have the crabs FPU since I ended up making my own (because I'm impatient). After installing a less restrictive intake pipe the car just breaths a lot better (you will notice the difference).

Bottom line if you can afford it, get it!
