    So, I'm not convinced that paying the price of a CAI is worth it, but I would like to have the sound of one. Will adding a pro dry or k&n drop in give me any sound?

    No not really do the Deck plate mod with the drop in and you will get the sound you want.

    I did that on my 1st Gen, and got the sound I wanted. I guess I didn't know there was a deckplate mod for the 2nd Gen.

    there isnt. no it wont change anything without the open element filter..a drop in will save you cash and get you the best gains. the AFE Pro dry s filter is the best drop in

    What exactly are you looking for in 'sound'??

    Get an exhaust if you want 'sound'. My experiences with a CAI (on a Dodge Ram) is that the engine is LOUD and somewhat annoying inside the cab.

    A drop in doesn't sound like anything. Slightly better throttle response perhaps, but that's even debatable.

    No, I don't want a louder muffler. On my Gen 1, when I did the deckplate mod, the engine seemed to have a louder "growl" to it...
