    I'm too broke to think about that.
    I am interested in getting an aftermarket intake to get some more power and hopefully better fuel economy. I know a lot of it depends on your foot, but I have been told that the intake can help improve mileage. Is this true? And if so, which brands should I look at? I have heard about AFE, K&N, Volant; are there any other good ones out there?

    Will not give you better fuel economy IMO.

    It probably does increase your HP, but not noticeably, if you have a after market exhaust it will be louder. Also It will not filter the air coming in as good as your stock setup. That to me is not worth it.

    The URD or the AFE Stage 2si (1st generation TRD intake with the cone filter) are the only ones worth a damn IMO. URD need to watch out for water exposure as it is in front of the grill
