AFE air intake alert!!!!!!

Ok,forgive me for a long rant in advance,but all diesel modders need to know about this experience ive had with AFE advanced flow engineering....
In 2009 i had a stage 2 cold air box professionally installed by a tech at altitude adjustments in red deer alberta...cost of $ to fast forward to january of this year,the small rubber grommet under the tube going from the box to the turbo had broken off from the rubber detiorating...the grommet was ingested by my turbo,shattering all the fins,thereby going into my intercooler.After further investigation i found all the rubber involved in this AFE product had detiorated to the point of cracking and breaking.Cost of repairs,$2600!!!I took a bunch of photos,letters from mechanic along with bill,my receipt from install and sent it all to warranty department of AFE after calling them thats what they told me to do.I just received a letter today stating they will not cover any repairs or even replace my broken crappy intake that i have now.THIS PRODUCT HAS A LIFETIME WARRANTY......I called for 5 months,just to be ignored and pushed aside.Basically AFE doesnt back their product or have any customer service whats so ever.Anyone with this product in their truck,be weary,and anyone looking at purchasing mods,stay clear of this product as well.........

It is threads like this, that is the perfect example of the reason why I discourage the installation of aftermarket so-called "cold air intakes". In my opinion, all these companies that sell these products, their only main purpose is to fatten their wallets with YOUR money. Does the installation of such a product really improve air flow into the engine enough so that accelerator response is noticeable? If the answer is NO, then it's a no-brainer.

Nothing, I repeat, nothing, cleans the air for your engine better than the OEM filter. If you want less restriction just do what I did which was running two OEM filter housings in parallel up under my winch bumper.
