    Anyone who ever tired one or both the K&N cold air intake (or similar unit) or just a K&N air filter on stock intake...which is better for the money? I guess what I'm getting at is, is it really worth spending $250 on the whole intake set up or is one better off saving money and just getting the K&N filter on the stock intake? Anyone who has ever tried either, any comments are appreciated. I am just lookin for a cheap way of getting a little more power out of my 350.

    I don't know what year your truck is, I will assume its a 96-98 since you said it had a 350. Definately go with the FIPK, Nad also check with AirForceOne, and AEM. The AEM BruteForce intake boasts the highest increase in hp and tq, and is comparable to the K&N.

    Just the filter is a must. You'll see another small increase above just the filter by adding the whole cold air intake-beyond the filter, if another small increase is worth the high price tag is your wallet's opinion. mine says, and has for many years now, that the filter is enough
