I have someone who sent me an e-mail but if he doesn't take it, I will take $35.00 shipped to the lower 48 states.

You prefer the drop in over the full on 77-1561 kit?

In my opinion, the drop in is the best bang for your buck right now. Until we can tune our truck there is really no point in getting a full CAI. To each their own.

The stock air box is a true cai. It's sealed from the engine and gets colder air from below. IIRC Blackmamba did some track runs with the volant, the stock, and no filter on his truck and the results were all the same.

Yes I know you are right about that. I have an online Christian t-shirt business and I sold some shirts to a lady in Canada and it cost her something like $20 just to ship the shirts to her. I was thinking that if you guys in O'Canada -Eh wanted someone to ship stuff to you..., on the other hand, I don't think you would save any $$$ in the long run. Just thinking out loud, sorry. Might be worth looking into on large ticket item purchases. Get someone you can trust to send it to you form the states and you might save a dollar or two.

If you're going to go with the drop-in K&N, then this thread linked here has an inexpensive mod to the OEM airbox which is a very decent CAI as delivered from the factory. With a simple flow-through muffler like a Mag, Borla, or such, you have a very small investment with the ability to take in more air, flow more air, and more easily get rid of the exhaust...and sound good while you're doing it.

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=63174

I've done jmr's mod to my '12 Express and have been very pleased with the results with a Borla muffler. No, I have no dyno results, but it's a rare scenario where improving air flow in and exhaust out doesn't help even in just a small way. If this inexpensive intake mod and a better flowing muffler only yielded a 3% increase, you'd still have over 400hp on the Gen4 hemi in our trucks.

The segment of jmr's mod that involves the ram air effect might not be as effective with that OEM fender opening still functioning, as it would bleed off some of the ram air pressure you're trying to accomplish. I'd at least do the additional intake hole with the inlet down low to get the additional cold air effect and increase air flow volume.
