Cold Air Intake on 07 Yokon

I am looking at putting a K&N Cold Air Intake on our 07 Yukon w/ 5.3 too improve fuel mileage. When I looked at what OEM, it looks like it is very similar to the design as describred by the K&N intake (with the exception of the filter). The tube looks to have taken into account reduced restrction and is plastic already. Has anyone tried this on a 07 Yukon with a 5.3? Any suggestions and feedback wil be appreciated.

I doubt it would pay for itself. A DIY one, OTOH, might.

At there's a few threads instructing how to make DIY CAIs. They seem happy with the result.

The white pipe makes this one ugly...

This sig may return, some day.

If it doesn't work, try the opposite approach?

I picked up about 2 mpg on my '04 Yukon by "restricting" about 1/3 of the air flow coming out of the filter box by taping over the edges of the screen at that location. No matter what I do with my foot, only so much air goes in, so only so much fuel gets used. Perfect cure for leadfoots. Forces longer, slower acceleration.

Sure, I don't have ANY power, but every time I take the couple of pieces of duct tape back out, my mileage drops and I put 'em back in.

If you throw a check engine light or idle rough, back the tape of a tiny bit.

Enjoy your new underpowered truck.
