Ebay.
Just buy one of those cheap kits off ebay. under 50 bucks. Then get a GOOD high flow air fiter. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on those high dollar K&N kits and such. They do not flow any better than a cheap one. You're just paying for the name. Unless your going all out and planning on pushing 500HP to the wheels dont spend more than 50 bucks on your CAI.

^^ that's not true, if it is an open filter exposed to hot air under the hood you will actually lose power from stock. If it is an enclosed filter that draws in colder air from outside the engine bay then yes it doesn't really matter what the name is. Most of the ebay kits are just open under the hood from what I saw...

Got mine off Ebay (Spectre) it came with the walls that block off the heat from the engine. Got some foam pipe insulator and cut pieces to fit along the top edges of the wall to butt up against the hood. the whole thing cost me 60 bucks. Better sound. Better top end performance, and even a lil better MPG. Oh and it looks great. This was on my 00 chevy 6.0. Havnt looked to see if this company makes one for the 4.7 yet.

Gotcha. My father in law bought a Spectre kit for his ford, it is pretty nice especially for the price except that it is not sealed off from the heat, but if you do like you said and seal it off then it would be a nice setup.

If its an open filter then it wouldnt be considered a CAI now would it?

Right, but alot of the kits are advertised as cold air intakes, even though they are open. Surprisingly, even some of the really big common name manufacturers.
