Cone filters flow more, however with the K&N type filters the oil can contaminate the MAF sensor. Also if you just run an open cone filter inside the engine bay, it will suck in hot air, and actually hurt your performace because the factory setup is already a cold air intake. Also, with all that being said, the stock air filter is not anywhere close to a restriction for a stock engine, so unless you are running a supercharger or major engine mods, you are better off to leave the stock panel filter, and if you do get to the point of needing something bigger, get a cone filter setup out of a mustang and run the stock mustang box and filter.
