    After reviewing and searching old posts for info on TW and XR-Underground, I think I am going with the URD CAI. Mainly for the sound it makes. I want something loud (something to make people think the hood scoop is actually functional haha). The numbers ran on both seem to be about the same as HP and temp goes. There was an old thread that had the install pics on it. Anybody have or know the link to it. Thanks! And I dont mean to beat a dead horse here about CAI's.

    BTW- XR underground is a pretty cool site too, lots of good info as well.:crapstorm:

    Thanks.

    Your truck, your mods man. Don't let anyone else chose your mods for you.

    The URD intake is probably the loudest of the intakes out there. The K&N 77 series has metal tubing as well and paired with an open filter, it is a very loud intake also. Most of the other ones are much quieter then those two.

    I'm running the 63 series K&N, and when I was N/A it sounded like an angry chewbaca under the hood.

    here is a vid of what my intake sounded like.

    I chose not to go with the URD because of the design (MAF placement and filter placemement).
