Before getting started on a performance upgrade, it's important to ask yourself if the upgrade will be worth it. After all, putting in the time to increase horsepower, torque, and sound would be a waste if it didn't have the desired effect. So how do you know if a cold air intake upgrade is worth it? We like to ask ourselves if the expected benefits match our desired benefits.

Our short answer is yes, it's worth it. There's a reason it's one of the first upgrades truck owners give their trucks. Not only does it increase performance specs like horsepower, torque and acceleration, but it also enhances sound, widens pipes for greater air flow, and saves you money in the long run with reusable filters.
