very true but the TRD filter does help, I noticed the difference. But I am upgrading to the AEM CAI.

CAI is like what max 6whp. Filter is 2whp. But nonthing beats the $40-2whp ratio. I have a k&n filter, get that its cheaper and performs same.

CAI r better than just the filter cause they redirect where the air is bing brought to so the air is colder and since it is colder you gain more hp
