“this is by far an awesome addition to my truck, not only does it get better gas millage but it also sounds grate with a deep throated rumble… i also would definitely recommend a cat back dual exhaust sys. with a flowmaster 40series muffler… the flowmaster is less restrictive than the stock muffler so my gas millage went up… also you get that grate deep throated american muscle rumble… enjoy…”Brokenevol
“Really easy install. I Followed the youtube video by K&N took about 80-90 minutes just as it said it would. Truck performs great. The gas mileage is a little better when you’re not hitting the gas which is much needed on my 6.2L chevy (it is hard to be conservative since the engine sound and performance is addicting.)” – KP
