Post intake filter?

I have a k & n cold air intake filter on my 05 6.0. Came on it when i bought it. I have seen a lot of negative comments on their performance. It is bad enough that i need to find a factory one and change go with another aftermarket one? Are the factory ones really that good? Any suggestions TIA

You have a couple of options and both mean getting rid of the k&n.

1. You could buy/find a stock airbox and put it back on.....this might get exspensive if you have to go to a dealer but it will give you the best filtering that is available, and I have heard they flow enough air for a 500hp truck.

2. You could find another aftermarket filter element that fits in place of the k&n and just keep the k&n tubing, that way you dont have to buy a whole cold air kit.

Is it a drop in K&N filter or an entire intake setup?

If it is a drop in, I would just put a factory filter on place. They hold more dirt than aftermarket filters without compromising filtration and as said above, they handle between 500~550 hp. I have a stock filter and have no intentions of changing it out.

i'm pretty sure that S&B makes a filter that will fit the K&N pipe. That would be your best option imo.

Best option is sell it to someone who needs bling then get a factory system as nothing will out clean the factory Donaldson filter and it will flow all the air needed to get 500+HP

S&B filters are one of the best aftermarket filters. If you want to keep your K&N pipe then just get an S&B cone filter to fit your pipe. I know they make them, just go to the S&B website. That's your most cost effective solution especially since the filters are re-usable.
