Any of you noticed any change of less suction with the PowerCore filter??? It seems that in the hot days here in West TX my truck seems to run feeling heavier... like if its not breathing enough and maybe filters so good that it even filters air from going into the intake manifold... idk it might be just me thinking that in my head... Ive had the volant for like 6-7 months with the PowerCore filter and dont think it needs a cleaning yet.. should I change to the high flow type?? Ive read the PowerCore filters so good that makes the truck run rich any taughts???

Do you still have the original air box with filter restriction gauge?  If so you could find a way to re-install the filter restriction gauge into the intake tube.  That will quickly tell you if the air filter is too restrictive.

A manometer is what you would use to check the delta. I'd have to find the data but usually no more than an 1"wc. Like the previous guy said the one that came with the truck is dialed in and probably the easiest way to check.
