Cold air????

so if the cold air intake doesn't not give you anymore horse is it really worth the 300 bucks then?? what if you increase your throttle body?? i know the intake on the lude are well designed but is it worth changing after you get headers and exhaust then??

I/H/E all together get you more hp than any single one alone or two put together.

They build off of one another.

^^^Correct

A CAI and throttle body bore out on their own won't yeild much, but if you do a header, exhaust and basic tune you'll get some good gains.

the cai sits in the bumper so it sucks cooler air but it has a risk of sucking up large amounts of water while driving through stormy conditions, the short ram or v2 sits inside hood so it will not suck up any water but does not suck as cold of air as a cai

A bigger throttle body won't really do anything unless you port the whole manifold with it.
