Cold air Intake

Guys: If I were to buy a cold air intake for my 6.0 ltr, what would you recommend and can I expect any performance gains?

Go AFE. I've been using them for years and by the looks of it you should probably be running an intake anyway with all those mods. It will make your truck sound meaner and you'll notice better throttle response. It is noticable.

I just upgraded to the S&B Cold Air Intake and I can say so far it was worth every penny. Noticible throttle response and pick up during acceleration. Dont know if I am getting any better MPG yet.

Unless you are going for HIGH horsepower the stock intake will serve you well. It will do all you need and more. I would save my money for something else. That is just this old lady's opinion. Take it for what it's worth. Besides what do I know?

If I wasn't running bigger sticks I promise you, I would have my stock airbox back in the truck!

I would get a coolant filter instead....cheaper and more important than an intake.

The only thing you will get with a CAI at this point is 270$ turbo noise.
