And is it worth the price? I know it looks cool but $$$.

It depends. If you get a maf adapter and put a cone at the end you will end up losing power. The K&N FIPK sucks. That intake doesn't enclose the filter in a box and the sheilding sucks. You might gain like 1 or 2hp with a good intake alone. Volant makes a great intake.

I heard there is a herd of ducks coming after you.

Don't waste your money on a "cold air intake" - take your heads off and port them instead.

It doesn't even make a difference on a V8. Luckily I paid probably $30 for mine, so I'm not too much in the hole, but it was still a waste of money. And now I gotta clean the filter every so often!

look if you want to try it go ahead go buy a CAI and see how it works for ya OR send the 300$ somethin bucks to me and i promise your truck will produce 15 extra hp and oh lets say about 10 extra foot pounds of torque. on a more serious note dont bother with them you dont need it save your money for something more worth it like some roller rockers or long tube or short tube headers with a better exhaust something you can auctally hear see or feel a difference with
