Default Too good to be true?

Does this come with everything? Like is it actually a CAI? I mean is this what all others come with?

Just my humble opinion. While this appears to be a CAI, it is actually sucking air from within the hot engine compartment.

if you like it,... personally i wouldn't run it - if you are looking for a cold air kit, look for one that replaces the restrictive resonator box on the throttle body.

mine is the airraida tube that replaces the resonator and accordion tube paired with a opened up stock airbox bottom. works just as good as the full kit my dad has on his identical truck...

I wouldn't buy it, it's made very cheap and is very disappointing when installed.

Agreed. It's cheap looking and doesn't block hot air.

Yeah that definitely doesn't look like it's worth buying almost any cold air that is under $100 usually isn't worth it at all. Let me know if I can help you get one though!
Thanks,
Sam

They suck in hot air and the tube heats up a lot. It is great when you first start up your engine but that only last until the fresh air or cold air is gone. Pass on it. I say you are better off to just drop a K&N filter into your air box and be closer to a CAI.
