Default Throatier, Fast in cold

I noticed when I was out the other day that the sound of the truck sounded a lot nicer and it's performance seemed a bit better. It was -30c out. Is this kinda like what a CAI would be like?

Kind of. Cold air is more dense so more of it goes into the cylinders increasing performance.

Cold air equals more HP.....except in my Lightning it means lean condition and a possible rod chunk!
