Not Literally...I've been looking around since joining the group...Seeing what kinds of mods I want to do to my truck...Been thinking about getting a CAI to boost performance a little...Was looking around at different sites: Advance Auto Parts, JC Whitney, K&N's own store and a couple of others...They were all asking about $320.00 for the 63-Series intake...So last night, when I came upon PEPBOYs website and seen it advertised for $188.90...I thought it was a joke...First thing this morning I called to see if they had it in stock...Nope but could order it....I asked the price...Yep...$288.90...Needless to say its on order...Couldn't pass that kind of deal up at all...I don't know if it was just a fluke or what...But its going to be mine now...

Yes...Yes it does...But I still think something wasn't right...I looked last night and the price was $289.99...But when I checked by just using K&N's part number 63-1533...It still came up with the $188.90...So I don't know for sure...All I know is I only paid the $188.90 and should be here in a few days...Can't wait...I know 11hp(10.46) isn't much of a difference...Just fun completing an upgrade...And it looks to be a pretty easy install...

might not be a big upgrade, but will go together nicely when you complete other upgrades.

it may not be a major upgrade like Shawn said... but you will definately notice a differece in performance and throttle response, and if you just continue to drive the way you normally do, maybe a few extra MPG's while you're at it...

Finished the install a little earlier this evening...I snapped a couple of before and after pictures...I'm going to try this again...But when I tried posting just a few minutes the before picture was upside and couldn't get it fixed...So oh well...I checked all the connections before testing it on the road...I can tell the difference, not to big...but a little quicker response anyway...

Here is the before...I know its filthy...

Here is the after...

Only problem is the air temp sensor doesn't seem secure enough to me...It just slides into a rubber grommet...But seems like it would fall out easily...Any thoughts?

Looks good!! Let the mod Bug begin!!! As far as the AIT sensor i'd say that you might want to use a little bit of silicone around the inside of the grommet so that it doesn't come out. If you need to change it for some reason the silicone will pull of pretty easily. I would do that just for piece of mind.
