cold air intake options

I am running a bone stock 12v and do not plan on doing any modification to the engine so is it worth the cash to get a cold air intake? Some other options I have looked at is a home made system or a K&N filter in the stock box. Just lookin for opinions here

Nope. A cold air set up would only make more noise for you. Don't use a k&n though. Check out an AFE drop in. I'm a fan of their PG7 line. It is an oiled filter though. Some people don't like it. AFE also makes a good dry air filter too.

Discard your gasser mentality. A turbo heats the air by compressing it, no amount of "cold air" changes that. For that reason we have intercoolers. For stock applications the stock filter is a good as they get. Just don't forget to seal the edges where the filter mates to the box.

I see the wrong in my ways for calling them cold air intakes (Thanks GAmes)
So the claims of improved economy are just a load of marketing bs?

What were you looking to gain? Just more mpg? If so, look into bumping up your timing to around 16*

I think there is an extra tall filter element, can't find the part number though, I think I'm going to get one myself

That is the way i am leaning right now. My buddys are pushing me to tweak the pump and get some more power but for the time I have into the truck to restore it I don't really want to mess with it. The plan at the moment is to build a nice highway driver so the more mpg the better

The stock intake is a cold air intake, you can add an extra vent to the cowl to bring in a little more air.

Here's a post from Illflem and the pictures of his install:
Modify Stock Airbox???

Another option is the BHAF, you can search it to find all the information you'd ever need. I like it because it's a large paper filter that flows well, paper is the best thing when it comes to keeping our engine safe. Only downside is that it's a hot air intake, it pulls in heat from the engine which means the air going to the turbo is not quite as dense.
