I'm no expert on your vehicle. I can only go by my experience on my own vehicle. I have a K&N intake on my Ford....It flows a little more air and you can hear the engine more. Not much difference on noticeable power gains Although, with any aftermarket custom intake filter kit that requires the spray on oil, "they do not filter the air as good as a paper air filters." Also, I noticed a difference on my Emissions test results, "some of the chemicals used to oil the filter was present on the test. Figure I would let ya know. I recommend keeping the stock intake. Just keep the truck tuned up and let the engine breath with a better flowing exhaust. A custom Chip or Tuner will help.
