Check out airflow innovations here. They have some nice ones!

I have AEM Brute Force Intake on mine, and I think it's great. I went with AEM because they do not use oil in their filters. You'll get a lot of different opinions on a lot of different intakes (K&N, Vararam, etc.)

Here's an old pic I had lying around:

How much does the intake affect the performance?

You'll see/feel an increase in horsepower, torque, and even MPGs. All of the gains depend on your driving style.

I agree! You wil see better response from the throttle which is always good. And you can hear that bad boy breathing which is cool as well!

i think it is a well worth mod!!!

Oh ya DSPTYWCADET thats not fair! Yours is really clean hahaha

I think one of the biggest changes I notice with adding a CAI is improved throttle response.

You will get some increase in power (maybe 15HP) but it will really shine when you add an exhaust system that flows better than the stock one. More air in + more air out = more HP.

Combine the intake and exhaust with a programmer and now you've covered the three basic mods that are your best bang for the buck.

If you have a HEMI, I'd strongly suggest the DiabloSport Predator programmer.

I totally agree with Maddog

I hope to clean the whole truck, inside and out, tomorrow.
