The S&B intake is a great option. Probably the one I would have gone with if I had a hemi. I love the fact that there's the optional scoop to put on the bottom of the intake. If you're looking for max HP and torque gains the Vararam is the way to go.

There aren't any tuners out for the '13's yet. I wouldn't expect them for at least a couple months if not longer.

The scoop attaches to the bottom of the intake box and goes down to right behind the front bumper. You won't even see it. It just allows more air to get to the box rather than just using the stock hole on the side of the inner fender.

It's true, the Vararam is huge... but if you're looking for HP and torque no other intake will come close to matching it.

I put an Airaid on my 2013 find it works great performance wise. Use the 2012 model works on 2013
The vara ram is nice to. Just don't like the look.

S&B is a great product. I absolutely love mine.

I have always been a big proponent of enclosed intakes.

Pros with any CAI is more airflow to the motor. However, don't expect crazy mpg or performance gains from ANY CAI. No CAI will do anything crazy. But I do feel that every truck should have one. I have always had some sort of CAI on my trucks. They look great and do help.

My number two option for an intake is Vararam. Their intakes will probably give you more performance gains but I just didn't trust them off road. But they are great intakes.

Tuners will do more than an intake will. But I don't personally run one because of the risk with warranty. It is the only thing my dealer said will void my warranty. But they do a lot to wake these trucks up. I am not sure if one is out yet for the 13s. But Diablo and Bullydog both have good products for these trucks.

If it was me run a CAI and exhaust to free up your motor some and then when a tuner is available get it. A tuner will work much better with the CAI and exhaust in place.

Good luck and if you have any other questions let us know. In my sig there is a link to my S&B if you want to see pics etc. It is custom painted, they come black, just so you know

Oh I must... All an s&b intake is....
Under the hood ornament. It's like a stock intake with a piece of plastic over it. They don't even put a good filter on the end of it. So I don't understand why one would buy one.
Oh Doyle rulz :-)
