What does the filter look like and how do you put it in?

The filter kinda looks like a smaller version of the engines stock air filter,if you do a search,you'll find all kinds of tips on installing one.
You do have to cut your factory heater box,but the outline is already on the box.
Good mod to do if you drive anywhere dusty etc..
I've noticed it helps keep the dust levels down on the dash.

Apparently the Superchips programmer gives you a little more grunt then the Bullydog does,but i'm only going on what i've heard from the forums.

If you have deep pockets there's a fair bit you can do,like convertor/deeper gears/nitrous etc.,but as far as bolt ons,there's not much other then a cold air kit and a ported throttle body that you can do on top of what you have.
On both save your money,bang for the buck neither a CAI or a ported throttle body will give you much return for your money.
You're better off modifying your stock air box,as it's a pretty decent unit,and is already a cold air intake.
