airaid cai 3.5 ecoboost worth it??

is this setup worth it on a bone stock truck? was looking to add a little bit of extra power and airaid claims 20 hp and 39 tq. that seems like a lot of power just for a filter and heat shield.

can anyone honestly say this intake is worth it? i think the hp and tq gains that airaid claims should easily be felt by the butt dyno.

what do yall think? buy the intake or leave the stock airbox? drop in filter seems like a waste of money to me

Airaid is well.....you might as well add stickers...the bene is the same as they do not have a single dyno doc that has ever been conducted at an ISO certified facility nor has it ever been duplicated

Don't expect tremendous improvement on you ride when installing a CAI. There are other factors that can help like a free flowing exhaust, tuner, etc.
