I hear you man, I just find it odd that they have offered the jr. intake kit for the 5.7 from as far back to 2003 and suddenly stopped offering for the gen 4 ?
Thats the only reason why Im basing my question on.. is the gen 4 box is pretty decent for what it is. Im def. not the first person to ask that question. Hell, Ive already specd out a cone style KnN filter with more sqare " area from here http://www.knfilters.com/universal/universal.htm
and a turndown elbow so it all FITS in the oem cold air box. I decided to leave well enough alone LOL since Ive already bought the flat panel drop in
Im just still undecided on a super duper intake kit and waiting until they all get released.
