I cannot tell you the last time I spent a measurable amount of time above 4500 RPMs. Surely not enough to justify some $200+ intake with bling appeal. I think I will stick with my $4 paper filter and classy stock look and reliability.

Mine is an '07 and I cut off the input pipe and blocked the hole, then cut a new hole to center the K&N filter in the stock box. Hope this helps!

Depending on which one of wydopnthrtl's posts you believe, it could be 5000+ RPMS!!

But you are correct, it isn't work the $$$, or the dirt & oil you will be passing into your engine, contaminating your MAF sensor, and gumming up your IAC valve & throttle body.

Well I took off the rubber hose type thing off my airbox which had an opening of only ~1.5in I'm guessing. So the opening to the box is a lot bigger now. Plus then I took the air silencer (I'm pretty sure it was) part off the intake and gutted it. Like everyone said I seem to have a tad bit less torque in 2nd up to 25mph. Then after that I feel like I have a lot more power. Plus all that dirt I wiped off everything when I did it probably made the whole truck lose a good 15 pounds.

When I built my intake I just have it sitting in the stock bottom piece and the factory little port that pulls in air from the front of the truck shoots right in and I have no problems.
