If you get one that requires a tune it's a big difference. If none required, then a little difference. It's best to get the tuner combo, because you're gonna want to keep making mods and the tuner is required for most.

I've herd good things about them, although I can not speak from exp. Also not sure what comes with one when you buy it new. I assume the one you found is used?

It's a huge debate... The way it was told to me the intake manifold can only take in so much air... By changing the intake it does not "suck" more air in...

I don't know that's just what a lot of shops/tech guys say

He is talking about changing the intake manifold not adding CAI. Not sure if you caught that?

The cai and tune will give you more power. The tune required cai draw in more air and cause a lean signal, the tune fixes that and compensates for the increased cfm.
