I just deleted and am running the exteme file. I haven't changed my air filter yet. I am wondering if a CAI will really make a difference. Has anyone had any experience running stock filter vs CAI with a deleted truck? I know the it is recommended to run CAI but want to know if that's just because "that's what everyone says" or has anyone actually noticed a difference or felt that is was actually required.

I was reading some old threads on the forum from 2012 and H&S was suggesting back then to run the stock intake over a CAI, they tested and found stock flowed just as much as an aftermarket. I think at this point the aftermarket is more for asthetics then anything.

True in stock form, however a tuned and deleted truck needs to breath.

That's the point. H&S ran tests on their tuned and deleted 11 and found the stock intake performed just as good as the CAI they originally installed, and that thing was pushing what, 800hp?

I know I spent a good amount of dyno time with my trucks too....and in the case of the 2011, I do not own one of those, so I will make sure not to stick my foot in my mouth with this case. I can tell you that the stock air box did NOT out perform my aftermarket S&B or AFE's on the dyno (With my trucks). One thing for sure is more air is better. Even if there was no power difference, I would bet my truck it would lower the EGT's. That is a good enough reason for me.

I'm sure that testing wasn't done when they were pushing 884 hp if I'm correct. I had read else where too, that stock was just as good. But why is there an aftermarket kits claiming more hp then stock? Also, as turbo kidd stated, I'm sure it lowers egts and that's better then a few ponies in my book as well!

Alright, back at the OP....He stated he already has the S&B.....and YES, pull the plug out and leave the lid off. Enjoy the fresh air and some nice turbo noise.
