Too much thought (and worry) is placed upon the purchase of 'the right' CAI.

Truth is, there is no "Holy Grail" of intakes that will guarantee your truck to be 'superior' in all ways.

Fitration, appearance, your particular application, 'performance',,,, Personal preference's will differ.

To me, it's not THAT critical of a choice,,,

If you decide to get one, you'll have to decide what's important to you and choose accordingly.
to a certain degree i agree with what your saying...that is until you start cammin or doin heads (or performance application)... then it does matter... to me the difference was night and day when I installed the Ramhammer (BFI) or the Vararam... at this point our trucks really need to breathe
