    The stock one is really good and you already paid for it.

    The TRD and K&N are the only ones that have shown HP gains on the dyno. I have the TRD myself.

    Mine hasnt been released yet, but I have a dyno chart showing a handful of HP gains with the new AIRAID intake design.

    A little of this and a little of that.
    I have the K&N and love it. It sounds aggressive and the HP gains from K&N look great. 10+ HP. However, with all the horsepower this truck already has you can't really tell just by driving it around. Hope this helps.

    more than I can list here
    Intakes have a ton of profit margin. But I talk every customer out of em because stock works best.

    Stock with Bullydog tune truly makes the best driving truck right now.

    All good. FWIW, I did a quick search using the search tool and located several topics on it.

    I see the GT is available for the '16 but not the BDX.
    Hopefully soon the BDX will be available also.
