With a stock engine for the expense you're not going to pick that much up I would just put a good washable air filter K&N Etc.

I have a CAI on my Moose together with a ram air intake hidden behind the grill. I tow my Skeeter with it just fine. I don't know about HP and torque, but I do get better mileage with my setup. As for me, if I were going to tow 9,000 lbs any distance, I'd want a Cummins under the hood.

I have a K&N performance CIA feed from the front by a JET STREAM SCOOP from behind the grille, and from above by the fully functional scoop on my Amerihood SSK hood. The most I have pulled since owning my quad cab 1500 is 2,500 lbs. She pulls that like it isn't even there, even up hills.
