    IMHO, no. They can cause runnabilty issues and some make a hissing noise with the engine running. Others will disagree with me and thatís fine, only my opinion.

    The good intake kits require recalibration and can make a performance improvement. An example are Halltech products. All of his stuff works well and some of it requires a calibration change.

    Less expensive kits may or may not offer an appreciable performance change.

    As "LLC5" states, some intake kits change or add induction noise. That's a subjective issue...some are ok with that, others are not.

    I had a HallTech intake on my 2001.... I also had a "canned tune" done on the ECM to try and take advantage of that extra air. As for my 2007, I have chosen to remain stock on that front.
