Post ganzflow vs cobbtuning intake

I keep reading and reading but cant find an answer I am looking for.
Which of those two intakes will preserve my low end torque???
Everyone says they are the same, but that the ganzflow keeps your torque because it uses your stock airbox...then the cobb tuning one (same preformance) doesnt use your stock airbox. If it doesnt use your stock airbox, then would you loose low end torque???

this is an age old I-club question. Cobb and Larry both agree that the Cobb is one step above the Ganz. The Ganz is the price king and may keep a very small amount of torque than the Cobb on the low end. But the Cobb has superior top end. From what Cobb says the PRM filter in his intake setup acts as a chamber somewhat like the stock chamber. I say if you want a bargin get the Ganz, if you want a intake more suited to additional mods and that will ultimately give you more power, go with the Cobb.

edit: I have not had either intake myself. Im going on other's words, and the fact that Cobb has dyno tested so many diffrent configrations and reported his general results, that i trust his intake is the best design he could find.

Greborb and I should have a comparision between the two soon. I am ordering the new 3" Ganzflow tonight and hope to have it later next week. Once it is in, we can compare the Cobb that Greborb has to my Ganzflow. I have a 2.5" now that I love, but if I can squeeze a little more top end out of my baby, I will.

Another possibility is to get the 3" GanzFlow and later add the in-line PRM Filter and remove filter from airbox (with added gasketing to make sure unfiltered air isn't introduced).

This is great guys, i too have been reading all the ganz vs cobb threads and all i've gathered from it is that everyone loves wichever one they've got, this was concise, to the point, and answered the question instead of giving an opinion. good job and thank you.
