The only difference you may notice is the sound and looks. The stock air box is a very good design not much different than most enclosed CAIs. I believe you will get the same results with a high flow drop in filter. Lots of hype over CAIs and unless you are doing some major high performance mods the expense is hardly justified. That being said I still like the looks and sound and that alone might make the purchase worth it. I love the S&B design the best. Had the K&N for 8 years on my last truck and it made a noticeable difference due to the very poor stock box. I have a K&N drop in filter now but I am having a hard time wanting to purchase that S&B for the looks alone.
