The stock filter already supplies more air than the engine can ingest, especially with your truck being completely stock. It won't make much of difference without a tuner.

I have a MAC CAI on mine and I'm taking it off tonight. It's a nice setup, but pulls nothing but hot air. Sounds good though lol.

My K&N was the same way. It had some "shielding" if you can call it that but it still sucked in hot air. I'd go with a Volant if its available for your year. Either way an intake alone wont get you much more power.

Mostly what it will do is help above 3k rpms. Doesn't nothing below that really. When I had my mustangs I had a CAI that went through the fender wheel to get true cold air. I only noticed it on top end.
