installed a s&b cai 75-5054

was running a dp back exhuast with mini max and was pleased. didnt feel the need to rush to get a cai after reading the stock filter can support plenty of power. also couldnt figure out which one i wanted. was really leaning towards afe but all the different models plus the different configurations yet showed the same pics on the website left me scratching my head. many of the members here raved about the s/b cai. looked into them. they had good evidence and decent price and ordered the intake.

arrived in a day. i guess theres a distributor nearby. everything came neatly packaged. great instructions though i would start the install by removing the maf. the tool did not fit. fumbled with it for 10 minutes before i used some pliers to turn the screws. other than that the install was very simple. just needed a screwdriver. tools were on the other side of town so when i got there i tighted the clamps with a socket.

once everything was in started the motor and idled to check for any leaks or check engine lights. nada. shut her down. cleaned up jumped in the cab and headed to work.

im not one for loud exhaust or motor but dang the extra little rumble from the cai put a smile on my face. the throttle even more sensitive. there wasnt much lag after tuner and exhaust but now seems like there is none. smashed the throttle a couple times couldnt notice the difference since what i think is already powerful/fast. it smokes a bit more than before. still on my first tank. i was getting 1-2 mpg better than stock. ill post later after a few tanks. ill be glad that i dont have to spend 75 bucks on a factory filter anymore.

I know that tool it came with for the MAF Sensor didnt fit very well in mine either. I had to tap it gently with a hammer to get it in each screw then carefully remove them. When I put the new Intake in I used the regular Philips screws that came with the S&B kit. I love the slight rumble mine has to, nothing too extreme. I like to be able to keep my truck running at drive throughs when I order my coffee.
