if i had to choose an intake system it will be a S&B intake.... its the best bang for your bucks intake that you can purchase.... but a DIY intake is pretty good too if you want to go that route

The best? Ford AIS. I run it and love it. It will support a bit over 400hp without modding the box.

6637? I used it and it worked OK. Too loud for me. Can you keep the batt tray? Yes.

Tru-flow? No clue.

And yes, ditch the crappy K&N.

You can drill a hole and mount it to the air filter or leave it plugged in and lay it by the filter.
