I have the explorer intake on my gt and it flows better than stock. Due to my 3/8 in spacer I had to put on for my valve covers to clear the intake would not clear my 95 hood. It would still shut, but it was tight. I was afraid the hood would crack the first time I got on it. I had to cut the hump that is in the center of the hood underneath, not all the way through the hood just the first layer of fiberglass. Then everything was good to go.
