Is there really an issue with running it in the winter? I have seen that posted a couple of times now, but then others say its not an issue.... Anybody with any first hand experience with this?

I also picked it up for he unique factor. Frees up the stock intake spot so I can put a second battery in and make it look like the heavy duty counter parts.

Not to mention until I get a supercharger or something crazy it will always draw attention every time I open the hood.

However in the near future once I get the ARH longtubes and magnaflow exhaust I will be testing to see if it hurts performance vs the stock intake.

To the OP .... I personally like the look and can feel a modest difference from stock. I haven't performed any tests.

Truck felt like it pulled a bit harder through the powerband, but it may have been psychological more than actual. Dont know. I haven't run any quarter mile passes to substantiate any of the claims or hype. Looks cool as hell....
