302 CARBURETOR Cold Air Intake

I have a 1985 F-150 with a 302 2 barrel carb soon to be swapped for a Holley 4 barrel. The stock cold air intake (Air cleaner, snorkel, and air intake tube) is long gone. I would like to get another cold air intake, but have had no luck in finding one for carbed motors. All I can find is the open element air cleaners. Is there a reson why Summit, jeg's, etc. do not carry these? Which leads me to wonder, is there really any advantage to running a cold air intake versus an open element air cleaner for carbed motors?

blackout150 is starting off with a positive reputation.
old style air cleaners with the snorkel are more restrictive, and an open element provided more airflow. However, it was warm air from the engine compartment. 85 mustang Gt's had a dual snorkel air cleaner which would provide more air at a lower temp if routed correctly, but would still be more restrictive than an open element cleaner. Your call at that point what you want to do.
