The Snorkel itself does not provide horsepower. Its main function is to protect against taking water into the engine. It may....provide colder air intake which might provide more power, but the tubing required to run a snorkel bends through the inside of the trucks quarter panel and connects to a sealed, stock air box. A drop in K&N will help with less restricted flow. The K&N intake is useless for our trucks and especially with the 3.4L engine. With the 2.7L engine Some people say they get more horses but I am skeptical. If you want more horses a header and cat back exhaust will give you what you want and a Supercharger with some fuel mods will yield large horsepower gains. Snorkels are great if you like crossing deep water or racing through mud puddles.

why is the K&N air filter useless on a 3.4? i just ordered a filter kit for mine but haven't installed it yet.

it's not useless.. in fact you will notice a different, especially in combination with the deckplate mod.

LMAO.....this should have been my first answer.
well there is some gain, just not much...but it sure sounds cool! :D I like mine cuz I don't go through 5 paper filter in a couple months during summer runs.

Exactly right I have the FIPK in my truck along with a Borla cat-back and the only difference is when you stomp on it it's louder, especially from under the hood

You've gotta be kidding me. I am about to install the FIPK tomorrow and was also thinking about getting a Borla Exhaust. And there is little to no difference compared to the stock???? This is not what I'm wanting to read. HAHA Say it isn't so...
