    Before I supercharged my truck I had a Roush Catback exhaust and AFE Cai not much gain in HP but it sounded much better. I attached a picture of the AFE Cai so you can see what it looks like they make a lid for the box if you want to quit it down. Once you get your exhaust and Cai look into getting a tune it will really wake that 6.2 up with crisp shifting points it’ll be like driving a different truck. Mike from 5 star has been involved with tuning Raptors from day one. Good luck with your new beast keep us posted.

    Thx guys I ended up meeting a local guy who just sold his 2013 screw and had air raid intake off his truck I picked it up for $75 bucks so I picked it up I’m sure I’ll upgrade in the future but for $75 with new filter I could not pass it up !
