I been going insane finding a intake solution. Would me going from the stock intake with a filter to a jlt rai benefit me? What kind of hp numbers are we talking? What do you guys prefer.Thanks.

It's a tough question for anyone to comment on without knowing your setup.
Details would help

I've been told that the stock intake doesn't become a flow restriction (with an upgraded filter) until about 460RWHP.
I've got a similar setup to yours, and have been told that any gains I see would be minimal at best.
Most people suggested cooling mods, or a diff brace at my (our) power level.

Hope that helps-

What size filter are you running now? Are you running just a big filter on the stock tube with no air box around it? If so you probably wouldn't gain much by just swapping the tubes, I swapped them just for looks.

I have a JLT Tube with a 12" filter at the end in a RAI fashion. Not sure there is a difference in what your asking, but a CAI will make less horsepower.

Stock intake with 12" filter for you...ive made just as much power with a Kb 2.4 on a stock intake tube with a 12" filter as I have with a JLT RAI and 12" Filter.......

Yea I have a 12 inch....and I don't mean in my pants hhahah. Ok so if the filter is good enough I won't change it. Do you guys recommend a shield around the filter?
