Not a problem. Performance or efficiency was not my primary goal, so nothing is lost. Heck, if I wanted performance, I would chuck the CAI idea and slap on a blower. I was mostly interested in uncluttering the engine compartment. Now, there may come some advantage when I pull the trigger soon on a Diablo 93 tune, combined with the E85 I use all the time now. But even if it still doesn't do anything, getting that weird, goofy looking intake tube out of there made me feel better. After all, isn't this also one of the reasons we do mods to our vehicles? To feel better about them?
Yes, the Amsoil air filter is the one they sell that is reusable. Wanted a little better filtering, since my pickup is operated primarily on gravel roads and farm ground, without sacrificing air flow, and the ability to clean and reuse adds to the value.Hey there, VA, what do ya' say? How many vets did you kill today?

However, as a CAI is a supporting mod, not a power adder, you're not going to see any real benefit yourself, without the necessary power adding mods.

Not really. It very much depends on how the ECM is adjusting. The ECM does not maintain a constant stoichiometric A/F ratio. It tries to attain that ratio, but it's constantly adjusting things based on close to a hundred variables. Not to mention all the external factors that can affect performance. On a chassis dyno, in a controlled environment, is the only way to know for certain whether it helped, or hurt, performance.

B) No, that is not what you said. You said the efficiency nor power will change, because the A/F ratio won't change. That is simply wrong. The A/F ratio constantly changes, but the variation is indeed quite small. However, even with the A/F ratio remaining completely constant, more air means more fuel, means more power. Where that power is added along the RPM range of the engine, determines how it affects acceleration and MPG.
