    No such thing. It's either big enough, or it isn't. The width of the tube should be enough that you don't register any vacuum in the intake manifold at full throttle at redline, and the length of the tube should reflect the max RPMs of your engine -- say about 9 inches per 1000rpms.

    because adding an aftermarket intake will not improve performance on a stock (or nearly stock) truck. In fact, you will probably hurt performance if you increase the intake air temperature (which most aftermarket intakes do).

    You should probably get the programmer first.

    guaranteed even with the exhaust you still hurt performance by doing an intake. Actually, 90% of the exhausts you could buy will hurt performance, as well.

    Programmer is iffy. If you tune it for premium fuel you might be able to get a little extra out of the engine -- but again you're hurting it with intake/exhaust.


    I'd say leave the stock intake... Put an exhaust for SOUND -- not performance... And if you want to void your warranty you can do a programmer but I think they're stupid.

    If you want to actually do something for "performance" stop being a pussy and get a supercharger. Short of that, just leave it be.

    do you actually know anything about at all theres so many things wrong with you wrote i don't even know to where to start and as far as voiding waranty with the programmer allmost all plug and play programmers when you reload the stock program it eliminates all traces of it ever being on the car i know for a fact that super chips are untracable if you load the factory setting back into it

    programmers are a waste... only reason i have one is to adjust computer for different tire sizes and gears. Otherwise they are completely worthless on a gas engine

    they DO void the warranty. The fact that some attempt to hide their tracks is proof.
