does nothing but make the intake a tad less restrictive and could give a "cooler" sound

I've heard the "cool" sound isn't as prevelant on the 3.0's as it is with a 4.0

it sounds cool... thats really about it. more air probably runs through, but i didnt notice a power difference.

You will notice a slight sound change in your exhaust (or atleast i didn wtih my flowmaster) and your engine will thank you for the added air flow... its a less than 5min mod so stupid to say not worth the time

Doesn't do anything. But it's fun to toy with the truck and rip **** apart.
