    In a few weeks I am installing a magnaflow dual exhaust. Im ready to change to a cold air intake also. I was looking at the K&N 63-3058 CAI. Is it truely worth putting on a whole Kit or would just a replacment filter do?

    What year is your truck? Your not going to get no 2.5 MPG better on any new truck with a after market Cai OR FILTER. Thats just BS.

    I would say that it's worth getting an intake. I bought my truck and it had a k&n filter in the stock airbox. I wanted an easy upgrade that was going to do alot and that usually the first mod anybody does is an intake. So I got it put it on and I immedietly noticed throttle responce increase. I would say my mpg maybe went up .5 to 1 mpg. So yes I would say it's worth getting one.

    Look in to an S&B intake or replacement filter. Much better filtering than a K&N with no loss of power.

    2004,5.3, Borla exhaust, Green Filter intake, TP throttle body spacer. No reason to bs just giving info on what I gained. Not looking to get into a pissing contest. Just answering the mans question.

    Well I asked him what year his truck is. I said your not going to gain that with a CAI on a new truck. (they already have a CAI) You said (
    i went with a company call Green filter High performance filters. Nice product ez install. big bottom difference. 2.5 mpg increase. alot cheaper to. check them out www.Greenfilterusa.com ) Then you said in your next post.(2004,5.3, Borla exhaust, Green Filter intake, TP throttle body spacer. No reason to bs just giving info on what I gained. Not looking to get into a pissing contest. Just answering the mans question.) You never mentioned that you had exhaust and a TP throttle spacer which that won't do anything for fuel milage either. I had said a new truck which a 2004 is not.

    IMHO ... I would do a factory airbox mod and stick with an AC/Delco Filter. K&N Filters are just a little better than no filter at all. If you really want a new kit, go with Banks, S&B, volant or AirRaid.
