What could I expect from this? Pro's and con's, if any of you have ever done this. Maybe more power because the air is going directly into the engine, or will my truck just run like trash.
I'll hazard a guess that you're asking if a standard 14x3 air cleaner assembly will fit your throttle body. Yes it will. I've had one on my truck for at least 5 years.
As far as performance over a stock air intake or any other CAI, the effect is negligible. It certainly isn't any less than stock, even in hot weather, but it won't turn your truck into a rubber burning monster either.
The best aspect of such a mod is that it will assist other mods such as a larger TB, intake manifold, cam or rocker arms, etc.
