At what HP number would this become restrictive?

I'm debating if I should buy the MP shroud or go with the air box I already have, air box is pictured below.

Right now I have a homemade divider but I'm thinking about going over to the air box.

I'm currently around 360HP, would I lose HP with this installed? Is it a bit too restrictive for big HP #’s?

I think Mike Menke had a similar box, He did 350 without problems. I think he is doing 400 with the AR and it too. Maybe he can chime in. He has one that scoop the air from the front bumper.

Interesting, I'll probably give it a go and see what the numbers come up as. Ram induction sounds like a great idea, wonder if he had to take out a headlight.

Thanks,

His has a scoop on the bumper, his headlights are intact, There is a tube that connects the box to the lower scoop.

That box was on my car when I got it and it was a sealed system and 100% of the air came from a scoop under the car. It was part of a 3" CAI. I upgrade to 3.5" CAI prior to my 350 pulls.

I now have the MP air divider and the ram scoop is still functional. I cannot keep the engine compartment free of debris so I know it works. :rolleyes: I can tell you that it does muffle the MPx. I ran the car with the element only for a week or 2 prior to the upgrade and it was a noticeable difference.

I do not believe my car was every dyno'd with the MPx and the 3" setup.

Oh I forgot you had upgraded, I thought you ran that box with the MPX. Well there you have it, sorry if I misrepresented the part.

Mike you still have that scoopt thingie on your bumper?
