    I found my truck a wee bit more responsive after I got my CAI. I enjoy my (possibly hypothetical) hp gains.

    I like my intake. Sounds mean!!! I been wheeling in the desert at 110 degrees with no overheating. Everyone has there own opinions. I like it so I got it. Cold air or not, it makes your trucks sound that much better. And If you go on AFe's website. there is a video of a dyno before and after. It does add power, not noticable though.

    but you cant believe everything people make for a sales pitch

    Do what you want.

    opinions are like assholes, everyone has one
