Is it worth it?

Is it worth getting the Sonnax line pressure booster?
Also looking at the Vararam air kit, is it better then K&N Intake.
With any of these choices will I feel an improvement in performance?
Or a 87mm / throttle body. Which one would you choose for your Dodge?
By the way I have an 04 dodge 1500 Rumble Bee

I any CAI is better then stock , I can't tell you how the Vararam stacks for the 04's I know on my 2014, it's made a difference, MPG picked up a bit, and putting the beat down on my neighbor's 2015 F150 is easier now then with out it.
Sonnax, I can't answer that , I have no experience there, but I would like to know also.
As for Throttle body, I think that would be your best bang for the buck...

Agree, CAI is better than stock.

Ported TB will improve overall drivability and throttle feel.

Sonnax line pressure booster works for WOT only, but you sometimes can feel a little more firmness at part throttle.

- Free up the exhaust too (Y-Pipe & Straight Thru Muffler in SS) if you haven't done so already - avoid the 'true dual temptation' it looks really good but rarely works well .

One of the best performance mods I've done to my truck was 4.56 gears. My 03 is a heavy QC. The 4.56 gears really helped it.

ABSOLUTELY - I would not trade my 4:56's for any other single mod .
