Default cold air intake question

Just purchased a 2011 sport crew cab and was considering installing a CAI. Can anyone asvuse me on whether this will increase gas mileage and HP, and whether it will void out my warranty. I searched several threads about this and i get different responses. Thank you.

Probably won't void warranty, no increase in milage, make truck a lot louder when you get on it harder.

It should not void your warranty and typically you will not save any gas because you will be driving the truck harder to hear the sound of the intake and for the extra boost you feel from having a HEMI that can breath.

Not a good investment if you are seriously expecting a noticeable mpg or performance increase. It will help slightly though, and with other mods the big picture is where you see it.
