Intake or drop in filter?

Recommended Posts

:seeya: Ok, couple of questions for y'all. First, would it improve gas milage, power, and sound if i removed the restrictive airbox cover of my 96' silv. 5.0 L with the OEM Air box. Stock filter, just a a little more air flow, just until i got an intake or drop in filter. And also, which would be more cost effective, Drop in performance filter, or full intake kit (preferably k&n or AEM brute force). Thanks

I put a drop in K&N filter in my truck...no noticeable mpg increase, and with a 300hp motor I didn't notice any power increase. I think the only way to notice any kind of increase with these drop-ins is if you do it to an underpowered vehicle...I put one in my wifes Honda and noticed a slightly better throttle response and a little bit more pep in it's step. :shakehead:

Yeah the 5.0L is pretty under powered in my opinion. I'm a student on a part time salary, would it be more worth my while to get a drop in filter or keep on saving for the intake. And also, i'm goin for sound also on this one, woud the filter sound just as mean as the intake? :D
