I don't keep track of mileage so I'm not sure if there is any improvement there. Here are a couple pictures of it.


SWEET!! Nice HOT AIR INTAKE

FYI: The Volant DOES have the hookup that you are looking for on every model, for the trucks that don't have that hose (like mine), there is a cap that goes over that connection.


A lot of people have complained about the sounds from an intake that removes the resonator, Airaid and Volant are two major brands that I know of that you must keep it installed, therefore cutting down on the sound a lot.
Im thinking of getting an intake now

Installed

I just installed the K&N 57 series cold air intake kit, replacing just the K&N filter on the stock set up. I took it around the block to see if i could notice anything new and I could already tell a difference.

I had the k&n intake, nice throaty sound under acceleration. Went back to stock with a k&n drop in but drilled a few 1/2" holes on the front of the lid to scoop in a small bit of cold air. (I have the SS Grill) Sunds a bit louder than stock.

Made my own with a buddy and a 12 pack the other day. We used about 2 feet of 3" PVC pipe cut into two different sections, a 45 degree elbow and a couple of 3" flexible rubber coupleings. I was able to reuse the housing for the MAF sensor, dropped in a K&N and kept the old air box. Removed the silencer on top of the motor and plastic welded a cover for the airbox sensor. Also cut a 5" hole in the front of the airbox cover.

Damn thing sounds like a bass boat screaming across the lake. Performance results are negligible. Bottom end of RPM range feels peppier, but top end still feels sluggish as hell.

Pics to come as soon as I take em.

I went with the K&N 63 Series intake. I have used K&N intakes on all of my vehicles and thats why I went with them for my TB. K&N has been around for years and intakes is what they do, so why not go with the best.

Custom intake with 3 inch pipe and stock maf housing. Only cost me 40 bucks. Still need to clean it up alittle and paint it and get a k&n filter and it will be good to go. What yall think ?
