Default Throttle response and HP

Steve the percentage of HP increase (6-10) sort of thing won't blow your mind. You'll notice a much better throttle response, better breathing at high altitudes (something over looked as a positive CAI feature) and expect to pick up around 1.5 mpg (ish). You'll hear a little more zing zing at throttle loads - and the S&B intake photo'd & posted appears to have a nice direct intake tube.
You won't go wrong with any aftermarket CAI. I have a strong preference for the "double stack" filter type, as opposed to the plastic cap.
