In this case the weight is worth the difference in performance

Response to weight difference

The 428CJ cast iron intake is a better and very different design than the 428 PI intake. The cast iron CJ intake came in sixth overall in Jay's Great FE intake compare. The aluminum PI intake was well down the list in 12th place.

My 428CJ Cougar picked up a couple MPH and a couple tenths at the drag strip going from the aluminum PI to the stock cast iron manifold. I was a little surprised at the time, but a few years later Jay's dyno testing marathon revealed it was not a fluke.
