This is one of those things that if you ask 5 different people, you will get 5 different answers.

For a relatively stock truck, the stock intake does a great job, but from what you have listed in your signature, it would be a good upgrade.

S&B makes a good one for LB7s. If you're pushing 500rwhp, an intake is something you can add. IIRC, it made a 12hp difference on my truck.

i agree with Tom, S&B from what i understand make an awesome CAI and filter, and i agree with Rob, with all you have done to your truck i would look into a CAI, you must be putting out about 450-500hp..
