Here's the thing about the S&B Cold Air Intake reviewed here and those similar: For those of us who mildly modify their trucks for performance with off-the-shelf products then, as chefred112 touched on, these types of CAI's are more than sufficient for the cause and will perform very well. With a [quality] catback exhaust, a canned tune and [maybe] a larger throttle body, these types of intakes are well suited to these applications and perform more than adequately.

Once you start going well beyond these "basic" bolt-on performance modifications, then yes, alternate routes are [strongly] encouraged and advised. But forums like this and experience and/or word-of-mouth over the years has taught me that most people do NOT go this route. They're more than content with the gains achieved with your basic modifications.

Now this is my opinion only but I'm sure manufacturers like S&B Filters, K&N Intakes, Volant, AEM etc, will agree.

Truck was sold today [5/19]. I got an offer I couldn't turn down. I had no more need for a pickup so I cut it loose. About to purchase a '14 Jeep SRT8 this week.

Grub out!
