    Took about an hour and a half, ended up losing an allen wrench in the process (it's not in the intake tube, i checked).
    I took it for a test drive, but no noticable difference in HP or acceleration.
    Heard there was supposed to be a small sucking or whooshing noise when you stomp on the gas, but seeing as how i was on residential streets, I didn't want to punch it and piss off the neighbors.
    Anyone who has this intake know if there's supposed to be torque or HP gains? I know it won't be much, maybe 1-2HP at the most, but just curious
    Here's some pics

    Yeah most of the posts I've read said the only noticeable difference is the sound. No increase in power.

    I had the exact same one, I notice some difference at around 3500 rpms. If you step on the gas, you'll notice some difference. I would put it again on my truck.

    All of mine fine no problem.

    As for HP gains, not so much. Just more sound.

    Considering the stock intake is already a CAI, there will be virtually nothing to gain over any high-flow drop in filter... especially as it already had a fairly large surface area to start with. Looks nice though...
