intakes are not all the same, I have had several different ones installed on my truck and most were the same, all they did was look nice and make noise, not much gain. I have since put a k/n fipk kit on and it is not the same...much better throttle response, slight improvment in mpg, and not as loud. Also, the k/n uses a molded plastic tube. The metal tubes, besides being much cheaper to produce, transfer much more heat from your engine compartment. The kits that have the metal tubes, in a way, defeat the whole purpose of a "cold air intake".
