WHAT DO YOU THINK

Hi there I have a 03 ford f350 with the 6 liter. I just installed new head gaskets, apr studs, egr delete and installed a 4 inch exhaust with a sct live wire tuner. I was wondering does a cold air intake increase your fuel econamy on these trucks?? also how much more power do you get from one. Do you hear the turbo whistle more with a cold air intake. WHAT BRAND WOULD YOU GO WITH

i definately reccommend doing an intake since you did the exhaust, for the simple reason if the truck is able to push out more air quicker, it is able to take in more air quicker and it cant do that with stock intake, you should notice a decent power increase, not huge, but definately noticeable. i would go with AFE or AEM. those are pretty good brands at decent prices.
