I would guess Airaid is the best match since they are from the same people. Also, at least on the 4.2L kit, the "coupler" between the resonator and the air tube allows me to adjust the distance between the two. Don't know about the 5.3L though... You might want to check it out....

As a side comment, man is my TB spirited...compared to before... I can accelerate much better...my engine actually rev for a purpose and not waste those precious cycles spinning... 3500 is about enough to get me up to speed It used to be 6000 and nothing much happens...

Whatever intake you get to pair with TBS, get a plastic tube like Airaid, then you can always trim it down to fit if you have a problem. That's what Mr.Northface did with his.

Forget the TBS - load of crap.

Don't waste your money on a TBS. Ever hear of the wonderpill from K-tel...claimed to increase HP and save gas. SnakeOIL !!!!!!

Best bets for increase to performance are:
1.) Intake (K&N FIPK or others) huge difference cost = under $300
2.) either professional tune using a Dyno and software like HPTUNERS or get an out of box tune (mail-order). I did the prof Dyno tune - best money spent!!! Cost = $400
3.) Cat-back exhaust: you pick. Cost = $450 and up

Just waiting for my Cat-back.
