Response to weight difference
The 428pi intake is a heavy dog for aluminum, 29 lb, same as the 8v-LR intake.
The 428cj is probably the heaviest car intake ever made in the world at 80-82 lb, about 4 lb heavier than the 390 Z or S iron.
Ford figured, hey, let's put the aluminum on the big police tankers, where it doesn't matter, so the heat crossover can rot out as they idle for hours on end. And we'll put the heavy iron on the already nose-heavy unibody cars so they aren't in danger of pulling the front wheels off the ground. Right.
