    Why not just get a drop in replacement? From what I have gathered, and im sure others will chime in with the same, is they really make no difference, other than noise it will make under WOT.
    Save the money. Get a drop in. Saves money in the long run on filters, that's the real gain as far as i can tell.

    Nope.
    Like i said, if you want a filter, get a drop in, save the money for other mods.

    I just purchased and installed an AFE CAI about a month ago. Since then I noticed I get about 15 - 20 miles less per tank. But on the plus side The truck seems a tad bit more responsive and sounds great when you get on the gas. FWIW don't buy it looking for big performance gains. I just bought it because I like customizing my truck.
