    Drew, thank you so very much on your article. I hae been asking about the benefits of a CAI and you have pretty much sold me on leaving it stock. i guess just a K&N air filter and have a go at it. thanks again steve

    CAI is last on my list. The idea of course is not that it magically cools the air as it approaches the engine, but instead pulls cooler air in through the fender, rather than the the hot air in the engine compartment. And, there certainly would be a gain to the smoother plumbing, but that would be in high RPM / WOT situations. I don't do that often.

    I had an 89 K1500 w/305 a few years ago. Put on a Gibson single exhaust and K&N FIPK (or whatever it is). Did them both on the same night. Wished I hadn't. Should have driven with the new exhaust for a week or two, then added the K&N. I did make one run up the highway with the new exhaust and old intake. Exhaust sounded great, engine normal. When I put the K&N on, the cab was much noisier. At WOT, it was almost unbearable in there. I can't say that they made a huge difference in power or economy. Maybe a little bit. The exhuast sounded incredible though. I had several people ask me if I had a big block in the truck. I am going to put another Gibson single on the 97. If I want more power, I would probably go with a programmer vs CAI.
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

    I am definitely looking at putting a programmer in next rather than a CAI. I really need something to correct my spedo for my new tires since it is about 8-10 mph off at 70mph. Someday I'll get a programmer. They're just so expensive though. Thank you for the info on the CAI.
