Default Intake opinions?

Hey all. Newbie here.. don't judge..
So i have my good old bone stock 4.0 2001 ranger. and i want to do a little bit of modding. first truck, learning experience, getting my hands greasy. I have read alot of good reviews already but i just want to make sure putting an aftermarket intake would be a good idea. Is it really even worth it to go and buy/put one on. All feedback is appreciated

You can get a cold air intake, they really dont do anything. I have one on my truck and I like it because I just have to clean the filter everytime instead of buying a new one. Some are expensive though, so you pay for a filter you can clean and really no enhancement other than the modified look

welcome. if it was me, i would get a nice washable drop in filter and not worry about the intake kit, your stock intake has plenty of volume. you can do the air box mod to help with sound and performance. it will save you 200 bucks and you can put that towards something better.

I had a intake and I took mine off and am replacing it with my stock one and am gonna do the airbox mod and buy a K n N drop in filter, I'm just curious if I would have a bigger intake tube then stock would it matter honestly?
