Depends on how much coin you are willing to spend.

Stock is good to 500rwhp. No need to really replace I till you go above that.

I'd say the best hands down is no limit.

There ya go. Depends on your expectations of the truck. If you are just looking to keep it near stock I would say don't bother. Money spent better elsewhere for noticeable gains, such as a ported intake manifold.

But then again. You do have a K&N. Get rid of it.

K&Ns are terrible. Known to filter poorly resulting in dusted turbo compressor. I use an S&B filter and am extremely satisfied with quality, fit, appearance, and instructions+flow/filter data they provide. It is also reasonably priced! Thick molded plastic and a quality air box to keep hot engine bay air out.

On a side note, I would stay away from that No Limit intake. A heat soaking metal tube and an open filter drawing hot engine bay heat for $375?!?!

I currently have exhaust and sct with innovative tunes, I'm just trying to get as much hp as possible with lil money, for noticable power is it worth saving 300-400 on intake and just putting my original back on? Also like to do a fass fuel set up down the road
