        Noticable Difference

        Overall a fairly Decent product, install was easy and parts seem of good quality, although I did snap a clamp by over tightening and the bolt twisted off, but was easily replaced with a hose clamp from the hardware store, just not as fancy. Immediately after the install I noticed an increase in throttle response and acceleration, both of which have held since I put it on 3 months ago. Definitely opens up the engine bay and looks better under the hood compared to the GM airbox and tube with all of its tumors. Didn't see a noticable difference in fuel efficiency, but overall worth the money, and hasn't thrown any codes yet.

        Easy install, good performance

        Reliable product, easy to install, only required a few basic tools. Pleased with the performance, boosted throttle response for my 5.3L Silverado. Only issue I had was one of the clamps provided snapped while I was tightening it. Fortunately I was able to use a clamp from my stock intake system. My advice is be careful tightening the clamps, and tighten them again while engine is hot, rubber is soft, to prevent any vacuum leaks.

      In the picture I see no place for the mass air flow sensor to mount to the tube?

      • The stock mass air flow sensor housing will be re-used, there is not a re-mounting position on the new intake assembly.

      Does this specific cai require a tune?

      Will this type of device help increase mpg? my 2011 1500- 6.2L gets 15-16 mpg average..would like to get to 18 mpg somehow if possible, thanks

      • Any increase in MPG would be minimal at best.

      do you need a throttle body spacer ? or is that just something extra?

      • A throttle body spacer is a separate component and is not needed when using this intake.
