I have a few thoughts...
1. Anyone try a airraid throttle body spacer?
2. Any difference on a open intake to a closed intale grabbing air from the front of truck?
i might order a spacer depending on feedback and thinking of replacing my intake with a sealed. thanks guys
Just forget about the spacer, the intake manifold and heads are too restrictive to gain any power. This also goes for a aftermarket intake elbow.
As for aftermarket air intakes, the stock unit is good for about 500hp, along with it will out filter any aftermarket filter. The only benefit to a aftermarket filter if the ease of removal and they are reusable. The down side of an aftermarket filter is you take a chance of dusting the turbo blades, sort of like sandblasting the blades.
If you want cooler fresh air you can do a ZOODAD MOD, between the air filter housing and grill is a fiberglass panel that can be cut out to get direct air flow to the filter. Do a search on ZOODAD MOD to get ideas of what members did.
