yes, it would be more cost effective to just get a better fitler, but keep your stock intake, as it is designed pretty well from the factory..

if you haven't already, do the Zoodad mod (cut a hole in the radiator/IC support) and that will help with EGT's also. Both of those changes should get your EGT's somewhat lower

you will get cooler egt's running an afe rather than the stocker. that's my opinion. I run cooler with my afe than I did with my stocker. again, that's my observation. If you wanna run an afe stage 2, I say go for it!

Do you have a free flowing exhaust yet? That will help the most.

I run a stock intake and don't have an EGT problem. Unless you're gonna do some major modifications to go over 500rwhp the stocker is fine. Save your money and use it on a good exhaust or something more worthwhile.

Oh, and the stock air filter is manufactured by Donaldson, so it's a really good filter. The airbox design isn't bad, but there are others that flow much better. I'd agree that you should be fine with your stock airbox.
