My friend put a K&N cold air kit in his 04 2500HD. Said it was an easy install and noticed an increase in gas mileage, not much but an increase.

Yeah, I don't think you're paying for the parts. They prob make the whole thing for less than 5 bucks. I think you're paying for the design and engineering.

I, personally, was looking at the Airaid and SLP intakes. I really like the SLP, but it is a tad expensive.... Anyone have any experience with it?

I own a 06..1500 5.3L i bought a Volant cold air intake with the optional ram-air tube and found a conciderable difference in throttle responce...aprox 1.5mpg improvement on city (havent checked on the freeway) well worth the money in my opinion.... took me about 30 min to install the whole thing and am very happy i bought it....
