That's awesome...Thanks Rick.

We, have always known just by looking at the physical difference, but now we have numbers and the "proof" that everyone is always looking for.

It seems that the difference between the Kodiak and LBZ is minimal and the flow rate is actually being limited by the stock tubing. Also, once again, your products prove to be top notch. :thumb:

Here they are.
thanks for the #'s but since I have the kodiak is it really worth the extra mods unless I am racing which I am not, just getting rid of the stock really helps

On the left is Inches of Water, aka pressure. In this case, negative pressure, vacuum, or resistance. On the botom is Standard Cubic Feet per Minute, aka airflow.

Since all the plots are somewhat linear and parallel, the easiest explanation is:

The further to the right side of the graph, the better the airflow.

Stock System LLY Mouthpiece = As the truck came from the factory.
Stock System Kodiak Mouthpiece = Stock Air-tube, Kodiak MP
Stock System LBZ Mouthpiece = Stock Air-tube, LBZ MP
Mod System LBZ Mouthpiece = Rick's LBZ Mouthpiece Install Kit & LBZ MP

I guess I read it as if you combine a Kodiak mp with Rick's intake tube, you will see nearly identical numbers as the LBZ w/Rick's intake tube. So... if you're concerned about getting maximum flow to your turbo, Rick's intake tube will improve over the stock LLY intake tube.

I just bought and installed the AFE mouthpiece on mine. It was a direct fit, and it was pretty easy to install. I haven't pulled with it much yet, so I don't know about fuel efficiency. You can feel the turbo spool quicker, and it pulls great.
