Air Intakes

My truck is new off lot, and I have been hearing a lot about cold air intakes. Will there be any noticable difference if I went with one of these over the factory intake? Or would I just be wasting money? And if so what would be good, better, best, why, and how would it help, if at all?

PS: Sorry if I have been spamming the boards with all these dumb questions, as they have probably been covered before. And so far all the advice that I have been getting has been great, there seems to be many good knowledgable, friendly folks on here, I glad I found this site.

If you're going to do an intake, do the exhaust as well, the performance increase will be very noticeable.
More air in must also go out, and through a stock exhaust is somewhat restrictive.

Don't worry there are no "DUMB" questions but yes a CAI would be better than stock but I would say for best results a Good CAI along with a free flowing exhaust and custom tunes would yield the biggest difference and the best results

yup what goes in must come out. so do an intake and an exhaust and you should get a nice hp and torque gain.

You are very right sir but a custom intake and custom exhaust could cost as little as 300$. And you will see a few ponies free up, and ALOT of ponies on the butt dyno.
