    In all honesty, what is the best Cold Air Intake on the market? I have 40% off on any Bully Dog Intake, should I go for it, or go with another option?

    As I'm sure you already know, this is a question of personal opinion and what your intentions with the truck are.

    In all honesty, that one sucks........air! Do some research here on the forum. See what others are running. Don't just buy something because its cheap. Like Mobile said, what are your plans for the truck?

    Intake

    Well I was wanting some opinuons from people who already have the products on their trucks, and what they think of them. Also wanting to get what was best all the way around for my truck. Yeah, I was thinking it must suck for them to be just handing out 40% off coupons. I want my truck to have power but I don't want to be taking it in every week to get wrenched on. I want all the power I can get, with my truck still being able to get from point A to point B.

    Huge discount doesn't necessarily means they suck. Probably just a huge markup. Lol.

    A lot of what will go into your decision is what pre filters you can get too. Marylandspeed has a discount right now on cai. Let me see if I can find it.

    Personally I think almost all after market intakes are about the same when it comes to flow numbers. if i were you i would get the one with the best price your talking a 0-2 hp difference.

    and guys he's looking at around 200 for the intake with the 40% I would do it. but Im a cheap ass.

    stock with a high flow drop in.... will do what these expensive CAI's do for cheaper.

    just my opinion.

    This, but really depends on your goal. I chose filtration over flow. That's the one area I think there is a clear winner. The Volant w/ Donaldson filter.
