Default those who have done the hughes f1 airgap intake - please reply

looking to hear from those who have done the hughes airgap intake.

I want to hear your opinions....ive read enough thru the internet, but want to hear from those on the forum

do you like it?
how was the install?

is there a significant difference?

would you buy it again if you had to

my truck has 4.56 gears, sct tuner from hemifever, shift kit, 2200 stall converter , aem brute force inake, dual exhaust

Im hoping this intake will be the missing piece i need for my truck.

lets hear your opinions!


and on a side note i have a question: My motor is all stock right now, if i were to throw in some 1.7 roller rockers on the stock valvetrain/stock cam....would i gain anything?

Well i just installed the air gap three weeks ago. Painted it up nice before install. Fit perfectly only deal was the tb adaptor had one stripped screw hole so I had to drill a larger hole but hughes paid for the tool and new screw so wasn't that bad. Install took all day pretty much. Not that bad overall to do but easier with two people. My plenum gasket was really blown. It was leaking 5liters every 750 miles so it made a huge difference once installed. Overall i like it my new mpg is 14.6 from 11.9 so I'm happy this is also 80/20 city highway.

what did you notice performance wise

better throttle response? more power/less power down low?

more power/less power higher rpms?

overall driveability?
