    I'm glad you saw an improvement. I can't say that I did.

    I got slightly better fuel mileage and less smoke. With the PPE Xcelerator I'm sure it helps, they recommend it to maximize the tune. It's free so why not?

    I recently did the PPE air intake mod and the truck does seem to breathe better. The actual mod was a piece of cake. It also lets you clean out the big black plastic pieces really well! ;)

    Yea, definitely not like a night and day change. It does give the air box a better chance to breathe better.

    I did the mod about a week ago. It was a minor pain in the Ar$$e. ended up using a Dremal tool with a rotozip bit. Chewed it right out and then cleaned up the residue. Well worth the effort and I have gotten at least a 1 mpg increase in milage.

    isn't it great that there are still companies out there that will share without raping you financially. I think it is outrageous the price they get for aa cold air package today. I also like the PPE mod as you have to look kinda close to see it. I put the small plate baffle back on top of it when I reinstalled it. I like mods you can't see for the sleeper effect.

    Now I need to get my 4" exhaust system but, I wanty ity quiet so I can listen to my tunes on the long trip. I am tired of exhaust systems with the big drone. Any recommendations or comments??

    Barry, here is a link to help you out with your choosing an exhaust. I too am in the same boat as you. When the time is right I will be looking for something made with 304 stainless so it will last with all the ice melt chemicals they throw around here.

    The link thread wasn't worth anything. there was no meaningful info in the thread. Everybody wanted noise.

    Negative on everyone. I did not want noise. I wanted functionality.
