    Welcome to TW from Montana! :wave:

    You might want to check out the buy/sell/trade section for the air filter...everyone is always changing something out on their trucks, you're bound to find one eventually.

    The difference between the OEM filter, and no filter at all, is about 1.5 hp. which is well within the margine of error of the dyno... So....A K&N isnt going to give you anything over the OEM filter.
