Default better flow?

i just had a conversation with my friend about his new DIY CAI/cone filter for his integra. he told me how much better it was than his short ram which didn't surprise me and then he told me if i wanted to be fast i should make one...my eyebrow notched up and i asked what the difference was. he said cones flow SO much better than panel filters. huh? "why"...."becuase"

he knows his stuff about cars, and he's no ricer but this time i think he might be wrong.

is there any reason to his theory? becuase i think my CAI works just fine.

well i think panel filters due to the shape of our box give higher flow volume, helping our low end torque, but a cone helps generate better velocity because of the intakes design to have low turbulence, benefiting the high end power, and since integra's are build for high end power only, the intakes using a cone are better for him, but not necessarly our engines
