How much does zoodad mod help?

Well i just did the zoodad mod. (I still have the stock filter in my truck) does the Zoodad help the stock filter at all? I know the filter can only pull so much air through it but does the mod help keep the air that it is taking in alittle cooler?
Also planning to do the DIY 6637.
Thanks

I dont think it will do much with stock filter but it wont hurt. I am wondering if my zoodad mod is letting in so much cold air that I am constantly driving around with the ebpv(spelling) making its jet sounds and causing bad mpgs...

This is really a "common sense" mod, not something that you can dyno prove or put a statistic on... its simply more fresh air into the engine.

Dont over analyze it.

No, it would have no effect on that system. Have you checked the tube that goes from the manifold to the valve to see if it's clogged-up some?

To the OP, you just have to know that bringing-in fresh cold air into the engine is better than not BUT, to your question of "help"? I don't think there's any Huge advantage, I'm not sure what you'd be looking for. Like So Many other things you can do to make things work better I think it's worth doing. I mean, why not?

When I got my truck I wondered how the engine got any air at all to breathe. I came across the zoodad and it seemed like a no-brainer. I did it, and noticed absolutely no difference. I then came across the 6635 mod, and did that as well. I noticed absolutely no difference. The 6635 is way bigger, and with a hole in the rad support, the engine MUST be getting more air. I just didn't notice any more power or MPGs. I'd still recommend doing it...it doesn't hurt anything at all. I have a 4" straight exhaust which was installed before the zoodad and 6635
