    Cold Air Intakes

    Instead of buying a new truck I am trying to squeak out as much performance from my current motor as I can. Can you expect to see performance gains with a cold air intake? And lastly, are they worth the money and time to install?

    Put several on a few sports cars, but no experience with trucks. I got on average about 10-15% more HP, and about same on torque. Dyno'd both cars.

    Wansn't cheap, but HP usually isn't . For the money we spend on cars, I felt it was worth it.

    Added exhaust, gears, and other mods as well.

    Would chipping it be a better alternative?

    Both. Intake and tuning.
    Make sure you get a programer for a vehicle w a CAI too.

    yes, I agree. you have to improve both tuning and intake to see some gains in your vehicle. have you managed to put on upgrade parts for your ride?

    Lol. Was a guy on a jeep forum I read that would dig in old threads. He would look for a hanging question to answer. Was more subtle, did it every now and then, not 5 in one day.
