Well just like somebody said up there, it all depends what youre goin for. If you want that throttle response and no lag then do the top mount. The only thing i dont like about those are its trapped with all that heat under the hood and after a certain mile an hour the scoop doesnt do shit, plus theres no real heat extracter with the scoop. I would rather do front mount, screw the lag, your top end will make up for it. Bradley03, certain intakes will work with certain front mounts?? They say that so you can buy there intake. All the piping and everything should be around the same, you may have to move the intake a lil.
And i just wanna know what t wrex meant by safety of the front bumper??? There are kits that fit better than others, plus it is just a bumper, as much as i love my baby, id rather go with my car running better and more reliable then worry about my bumper. But thats all just me.
