    I know you have already installed the exhaust but for anyone else wanting to know.... The exhaust is a better first mod because a CAI is simply pushing denser air into the engine. The way that most modern day car companys build their vehicles today is with the breather pulling air from the fender well. This is a simple type of CAI as the feneder well is a high pressure zone and selected based on performance aspects. Im sure any after market kit would boost the performance but to get the biggest change an exhaust is the way to go..... IMHO

    Compare the stock pipe diameter to a catback.. I'm curious and don't have my stock setup anymore.

    Also these trucks have been dynoed with stock filters, a k&n, no air filter, then no air filter, and the carbon filter removed..... No HP increase in any of those configurations over stock. The k&n actually lost HP.

    The restriction is the housing/ducting/silencers/baffles.

    I like the magnaflow off road exhaust. Im sure it makes some power and weighs a lot less, since it only has a resonator or muffler vs stock resonator and muffler.
