    Just installed this yesterday on my 2017 5.7L...installation was easy and along with a better sound I got better throttle response and an immediate 3mpg increase on city driving, haven't tried hwy yet but will update.IMG_0877.jpgIMG_0878.jpg

    Now you have a hot air intake. HAI
    3mpg increase? No offense but I seriously doubt it. The stock intake is cold air already. I personally would've done the trd intake or the SABM or both. The K&N looks cool though. But as long as you're happy its all good. I hope you're getting all perks that they claim. Cheers!

    this is always my argument with these waist of money intakes. sucking hot air from under the hood. at least that one doesn't have the metal tubing going to intake. that metal gets crazy hot compared to the plastic/rubber stock intakes

    How many mikes were previously driven on the new truck before adding the intake? Has there been enough mileage to get a true baseline for a true and accurate comparison?

    In any case, as long as the intake makes you happy, cheers!

    If that 3 MPG holds up, please let us know. If that's for real, I'll sure as hell buy one!

    I put in the drop in K and N filter in my stock air box and got 3 mpg increase and only paid $40 or $50 dollars.
