I agree. There are a few nice one on the market.

If you look at the things we spend money on, regarding our trucks, if you like it then buy it.
No matter what someone will disagree with your opinion.

I dont have one nor think they will do much without exhaust and tuning, but did do the mod.

i do plan on modding the exhaust, mainly for the sound. not sure id do any special tunning just cause i dont really have the resources to do so and dont want to spend money to get them.

cheapest way to go is this, buy some pvc and some couplers/45* elbows and some glue. piece it together to make your pipe. Go to an auto parts store and buy a cone style filter and but the MAF adapter, its cheap and made of flimsy pastic but works.

people often confuse "free flowing intake" as a "cold air intake"

This post makes it completely obvious why people don't understand pulse-width fuel trim modulation or maf calibration should not be modifying their trucks.

blah blah blah blah, the guy did not ask about pulse-width fuel trim modulation. He simply asked what is the cheapest cold air intake. I gave him an answer. That is the cheapest way.

I notice alot of folks on here have to "over elaborate" on things, if someone asks a question......then answer it. its simple. He did not ask if putting on the cheapest cold air intake will affect pulse-width fuel trim modulation. This post makes it clearly obvious people should not over elaborate.

It's not over elaborating if it is pertinent and important to the question at hand. And I would love to know how you think a cone inside the hot engine bay is going to be an improvement to anything.

I never said it would or would not be an improvement. Unrestricted air flow has got to be better then restricted....right? thats why guys do the air box mod, to be less restrictive? and who says the air in the engine bay is going to be hot enough to have any kind of effect? good or bad. My filter is far enough away from the motor that I don't think it effects it at all.

Case and point. This is why people who know what they're talking about add all this "over elaborating". Because everything you've said so far is totally wrong. The air in the engine bay is extremely hot and it will have detrimental effect on performance. Furthermore, the stock intake is not restrictive in the first place and already draws fresh air from the outside. Oh sorry. I'm over-elaborating again. I should just not say anything so you can help others be as dumb as yourself.

You'd care when your ecu goes into open loop, if your fuel trims were maxed out... atleast you'd care when you had holes in your pistons.

Ferrari's, Lambo's, Rangers & Yugo's all have the same process of combustion.

I don't go opening up the back of my TV and reconnecting wires... why? Because I have no clue how it works. Same reason why most people shouldn't be allowed to open their hood.
