    Well... First, it may help if you could tell us what vehicle you plan to put this into. :gasp:

    In general, you will want to replace the entire Air Box assembly to see the true benefits of a Cold Air Intake.

    If you have a small budget, look to other manufacturers.

    I have just installed a C.A.I. from Option Racing on my 1994 Silverado Ext 4WD with 350sb TBI.

    This assembly was only $20, new in box and included filter, of eBay. Not bad for an increase of about 10hp. :great:

    Be patient and do your homework before purchasing any bolt on performance parts, it will pay off.
