Not knowing anything about your truck or what other mods are done I will tell you that there is NO POWER GAIN to be had here. The OEM filter provides the best filtration and works just fine up until about 500 hp. I suggest you spend your money on a good monitoring system like an Edge Insight CS or CTS first. Much better use of the funds.

It won't really do anything from what I've been told. However, it IS already pre-drilled for adding nitrous, should you have been planning to go that route. It also claims to breathe some % more air, more efficiently... I don't know about that - but if anything, it looks fancy under your hood. It is a bigger intake manifold, but I don't think it actually does anything with a mostly stock setup.

Do you have a stock intercooler? If so, then the Banks intercooler system with their "Ram Air" thing might be a better buy, because it comes with bigger intercooler piping, it should definitely flow more air.

Even with your mods, the real restriction is in the intake manifold and head ports. The CFM+ intake claims more CFM flow, but what good is that air flow if the intake manifold and heads are restricting the air flow.

Rich is right here. The elbow isn't the restriction and getting a better flowing one won't get any more air into the cylinder. A gogo intake would make a much bigger difference.

Yep. But for a grand off amazon, the banks technicooler with elbow is a nice addition.

As stated, the heads and intake manifold are the big restriction.

unless you are going for monster power gains (550+) Just leave it be and enjoy what you have.

What aftermarket turbo? maybe a 64mm non vgt?
