If you are thinking about getting a cold air intake for your 5.3 07-13 1500 truck with the 6l80, you will need a tune. The TCM uses data from the MAF to help manage torque when shifting. With a cold air intake installed the velocity of the air passing the sensor changes and gives an invalid reading to the TCM. This caused my 2-3 shift flare. The flare went away after I installed the factory intake back on the truck.
