    I don't really want to spend $300+ on a whole new set up. I just need to replace the crappy intake tube. I can get one from K&N for $70 plus the couplings for $12. Would that alone be a huge difference in fuel mileage? all the major air flow restriction would be gone.

    Its a little more $$ but i would do our stage 1 with a lid/top. It removes the restrictions in the intake maf diameter and filter.

    that looks a lot like the Roush kit I had. I was pleased with it.

    All your posts are links to this site....

    whats up with that? you posted about getting competitive deals on a Raptor on this link, and someone said the "deal" was MSRP, and took a week to call back.


    You really wanna keep posting this up?

    This is what I did with a drop in KN air filter, has been working great for me so far! I have seen an increase in mileage, more significant than my 40 exhaust..and I like the stock OEM protection from dirt/debri and engine heat
