The EX unit should serve well. I don't think the tube diameter will make much difference unless it is small enough to offer more restriction when the throttle plate is open, mainly at WOT. I think the shape and length stuff is really about the intake manifold, not the tube into the filterbox. The main issue with the tube into the filterbox seems to be noise and whether it draws hotter (less dense) air or colder (more dense) air. That's my understanding. Others?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
