Cold air intake help

i have 96 f250 psd and i want to know what anyone thinks about cold air intakes. my air filter needs changed but the bolts are stripped out on the air box, and it wont come apart. Do cold air intakes really help the truck at all and are they worth buying? Or should i get one or just replace the air box and filter?

I only know what I've read, but because of what I've read I'll be getting a Tymar intake, 3" downpipe, exhaust and a chip. I've seen guys post they've increased performance and up to 3+ MPG with said mods (varies, I'm sure).

Should you decide a DIY intake is in your future, this post talks about the different types of filters:

Tymar intake

Best and easyest is have a Tymar delivered to your door for under $150..Or do a DYI using all the correct parts..if you have time to search out the parts.

We have them ready to ship.
