Basically the intake is a base mod that will only give you real noticable gains once you start chipping and adding bigger and better things.

It allows your engine to breath better which will in turn help it get better mileage and more HP - although just the intake alone will be a very minor increase. You have basically done away with any air restriction of the stock box and once you add things to make your truck go fast, you will be able to realize all the potential of those mods because you did the intake to support them.
