    Default cold air intake answers

    Well, i installed a short ram air intake on my 95 silverado. Ilts basically the same as your cold air intake except mine dosnt have a heat sheild. I just bought a cheap intake system from LMC truck and installed a name brand Spectre air filter on it. It makes it just as good as an expensive name brand system now. Anyway all i noticed a little sharper throttle respnse and a throaty intake sound. If you want a better intake, do the same as me or you can speng $350 on the real deal from K&N. And be sure you have an exhaust system upgrade because its worthless to try to get more air into the motor if nothing can get out. Good Luck.
