    I got bored last week and decided to build a custom intake tube. I found a 4" diameter AirAid U-Build it kit for $99 on ebay, bought a couple of Spectre 4" couplers from amazon, and finally a high flowing drop in filter. This thing was extremely easy to make and I had a lot of fun doing it.

    First driving impression, it doesn't take much gas pedal to get the truck moving anymore. That infamous Pentastar throttle lag is still there but is very minor from what I can tell. I took a trip on my usual route to work with the stock filter and intake tubing and drove home. I then installed my modular intake tube with the high flow filter and did the same drive, same weather/traffic conditions. Truck usually downshifts 3 times due to the steady grades on the highway, with the custom setup truck stayed in 8th gear all the way to my place of employment. Also, I reset the gas mileage gauge before I began each trip.

    I was stupid and took the photos during different situations, the stock setup was taken while stopped in front of my house, the aftermarket one was taken just getting off the freeway, doesnt make much of a difference though because I live .7 miles off of the interstate. I'll keep y'all updated on the progress if you ask me to.
