I put an AirAid Modular Intake Tube (MIT) on my truck this weekend which is essentially an expensive, but clean way to do what you are describing. I don't know if you have an aftermarket exhaust or not, but if you're all stock, you may want to hold off on this mod. I have headers and cat-back on my V6 without being supercharged and have always felt like the engine is starving for air, particularly in the low end. I did the deck plate a long time ago and it helped a little, but it's never enough. I put the MIT on in conjunction with the S/C throttle body gasket and it seems to have lowered my power band a little bit, but the in cab noise is excessive, especially at or near WOT. If you haven't freed up the exhaust, I wouldn't do this mod unless you prefer engine noise to music or conversation.
