The thought here is does smooth linear airflow across the MAF make a difference. My opinion,...... In the realm of 12-15 second 1/4 mile cars, not a bit. Whichever "look" or price you like is fine. A much bigger concern is isolating the end of the airtube so the coldest air possible gets in it.

Agreed. I have a smooth rigid tube right now, but plan to go with a flex hose soon. The air needs to go threw the MAF screen anyways.
