To realize the maximum benefit of the better flow at the back end, you need to add more air at the front end, with a cold air intake.

MADDOG, as for the CAI, I do run a AFE oiled filter and I did add another air inlet to my stock intake box, just as PSM Diesel had recommended because they feel that it is just as good or better than any aftermarket unit. Here is what I did : .

So I believe I have what is needed up front. I could be wrong, but then PSM Diesel would be too.

So, what is your opinion now? Does this change anything? I need all the help from you guys that I can get. Like I said, I don't have the extra cash to spend on a programmer and the deletes right now, so any improvement in towing and mileage without all the $$$$$$ would be great. I just don't want to spend the money to have a straight pipe put on from the CAT if it isn't going to feel any different than what I have now with the stock setup. If you guys don't think it will make a difference, I'll just hold on and wait till I have the money for the whole package.

And remember, I don't want to go loud either.
