Ultragauge shows intake temp is only 2 degrees warmer than the outside temp. Seems like a CAI is not really worth it unless you are after the sound.

Buy a drop in filter (K&N or Pro Dri) and save the rest for a set of Long Tube headers. The intake on our trucks does a pretty decent job as is. Mostly what you would pay for on a CAI is sound.

No, Its not worth the money. To see any performance gains you have to redline the truck to 6000 RPMS. but it does clean up the look under the hood.
