Does anyone have one of these or any other ones that are out there? And how do they work for them? Maybe what yours looks like too? I am thinking of getting one if they are worth it.

get a sct x3 and a custom tune. they work great, i love my superchips, but its limited to a preset tune. the sct gets custom tunes by a shop

oh, if your engine is stock, dont expect alot.

Don't cheap out. Buy an SCT programmer with custom tunes. The K&N intakes don't really help with power or fuel mileage.
