Can anyone clue me in on the difference between a t7 open air intake and a t5 one? I know t7's are a lot more picky about measuring airflow and recirculation, but what is the actual difference between the 2 open intake designs which ensure compatibility with t7's?

the heatshield is different, the T7 version has a place to mount the MAF using some of the stock parts from the airbox.... while the t5 has a piece of metal pipe where the MAF would be and a different style heat shield.

from what I understand, it is important to mount the MAF in a secure manner as similar to the way it is mounted on the stock airbox as possible....because excessive vibration will lead to an early MAF failure?
