Just as a FYI, the stock intake back on the rig withan AigHog replacement filter pulls much cooler temps. Just in case anyone was interested. This is proven since you can see the Intake Air temp if you have ScanGauge connected.
I agree but would not use a scangauge. You can buy aftermarket ITS's that read the intake temperature independently of what the computer reads. Therefore if you have a computer problem you can tell. I do this for dyno results when I use a big fan that blows into the intercooler to simulate real motion.

That's not all I use it for by any means. It fits my use well, but I can see how a better ITS would provide better info.

Search. This has been covered many times.
to get cold air into your intake, you mainly want it to suck air from outside the engine compartment, metal tubing stays cooler and on my old 4x4 had a snorkel don't waste money on a k&n your better off replacing the stock air filter at half life

For the original question. I vote for a K&N FIPK kit and add a outerwears prefilter **if** you spend time at elevated rpms. (4000+)
If you don't have the engine that high very often.. don't waste yer money.
