AirRaid Cold Air Intake for 2012 V6

Alright so i have read numerous threads that seem to go back and forth about whether aftermarket CAI are actually better than the stock (which apparently is a CAI). Is there any MPG, Horsepower, or Torque gain? Everyone I have spoken to in person says CAI does increase those things, but everything I read says they don't, could someone please shine a light on this.

I am thinking about getting this:

MPG, no

HP, minimal if any in a stock ( stock engine bolt on)

Torque, no

Sound of an F-1 race car...YEEEEEES!

You will get some top end power but how often are you at 6000RPM?

Honestly its just personal preference and people are going to say what they want to say whether its true or not. I have a TRD CAI and I really like it and I feel it gives better throttle response but dont think it helped in saving fuel.

Well get it if you like but it will be mostly noise. I ditched my old style TRD(same as Airaid) because it would get annoying when I simply wanted to pass a car.

Your only really going to be able to hear it when you step on the gas. If you want sound all around I'd say get an exhaust.

I'm already getting the flowmaster dual exhaust. I was looking to get that in tandem with a CAI for good sound and somewhat better all around performance.

Cholemaster exhausts reduce performance and they sound like junk.

I think that's a personal preference lol I've heard many, and I like a good ole rumble. Nothing insane but I've always wanted a little rumble to sound really aggressive.

TRD could have done that without the power loss.

Thats what I have on my truck and I like the combination of my flowmaster and TRD CAI.

Like others said, just better throttle response and top end. I have the TRD and it kinda makes the engine bay look less uncluttered. I also have the URD maf cal for WOT applications but with today's gas prices, that does not happen very often.

You'd be better off with a dynomax super turbo if you're going with magnaflow.
