Black Plastic vs Red Aluminum Intake Weight

Can anyone tell me the difference in the weight? I don't think I've seen this come up before.

Can't find the thread but there was somebody that said they weighed them and the plastic was a few ounces lighter than the aluminum. The difference in weight was pretty much meaningless.

Are you looking for the lightest weight intake?

I was curious if there was and weight difference between the 2013-16 vs 17+ intake but Tcoat says they're almost the same. That surprises me actually.



The lightest intake would be a nice piece of info.

Thanks T! I thought I read it somewhere but can't find it. I'm doing lots of meaningless weight lose mods ATM haha


I'd be very curious as to what the weights are.
