This sums it up very well, IMO.
With that cam, vehicle and intended use, an open plenum intake- ANY of them- will not work anywhere near as well as even a stock intake, let alone the RPM. The non air gap is my preference for a street driven car like yours, and doubly so if the temps get low where you live.
