    I know this has been debated many times on many forums, but I'm looking to see if anyone has any PERSONAL experience with both intakes above. K&N states an average of ~10HP gained, AFE say ~18HP. I know both are likely inflated, but just wondering if anyone has experience and opinions for the above CAI's. I have a 2017 Tahoe LT (5.3L) that I'm looking to put a CAI on.

    I know the AFE showed the most gains on Black Bear's test... But I'm also interested in hearing about first hand experience as well since I will probably pick up an intake sooner than later.

    I'm shopping around for the Momentum GT's (Part Number - 51-74110) price for a 2016 5.3l Tahoe. Here is what I have so far:

    1) Black Bear Performance - $422 + free shipping
    (http://store.blackbearperformance.c...Pro-DRY-S-Cold-Air-Intake-System-_p_1460.html)

    2) AFE's website - $460 + free shipping
    (https://afepower.com/afe-power-51-74110-momentum-gt-pro-dry-s-cold-air-intake-system)

    3) Carid - $426 + free shipping
    (https://www.carid.com/2016-chevy-ta...ntum-gt-cold-air-intake-system-911233684.html)

    4) AutoAnything - $422 + free shipping
    (https://www.autoanything.com/air-intakes/afe-momentum-cold-air-intake)

    5) Amazon - $419 + free shipping
    (https://www.amazon.com/Filters-51-7...-1&ymm=2016:chevrolet:tahoe&keywords=51-74110)


    Are these prices about right for what everyone bought this CAI for?

    Picked up the 74110 from AFE directly, on sale for $383. Install went great. Ran it without the plug and with the plug. Better with the plug bc it kills the drone under light acceleration around 1600 rpm. Totally annoying with the plug out. Love the intake and just added BB tune. Different truck and well worth it.
