Default Is an Cold Air Intake a good Idea?

I was wondering if it'* a good idea to replace the stock air intake with an after market cold air intake for my 95 Bonneville SE? If anyone has one installed, what'* the best one to use? And do it really boost up you HP?

Yes, it is a good idea. I'm not sure how much power it frees up, but it should be noticeable. It may also help fuel mileage slightly.
If nothing else, it helps the engine run a little cooler and gives you a lovely engine note.

I've never known it to be a BAD idea Except for when they suck up water when the car goes through a crater Hasn't happened to anyone here on the forums, but I am sure some Honduh guys have some stories to tell.
