What intake for stock???

Id like to get the loud turbo whistle. I have an 05 f-250 that has been problem free. Has 52K miles. Truck is completly stock except for mbrp turboback. Is it worth it to put a $300 intake on? I know the stock ones are good. I rely on my truck for an everyday vehicle. Plowing snow and towing a 16ft wells cargo trailer in the summer. Will it throw any codes? On a scale of 1-10 how hard to install? Which one would be ideal for my situation? If theres a potential for problems Id rather not bother then. Thanks guys. This site is addicting!!!

Justin

DIY intake! It's tons cheaper! From what everyone says though, your stock intake is good up to atleast 400hp.

Duuuuuude. He has a 6.0. Sheesh.


As mentioned above, if you're bone stock except for an exhaust, don't worry about going with a cold air intake. The factory intake is good up to about 500 hp and filters well.

However, it is a PITA to change.

I'm running an AirRaid open element and would recommend that or a S&B.

S&B intake will give you more whistle on the turbo side. fairly easy to install. they run about $270, it will not throw any codes.

jeez guys he isnt looking for power out of the intake. he want more turbo whistle.

are you runing the cat with your mbrp? if so just get a delete pipe for the cat and you will be set. if you already are runing a delete pipe then a intake will give you more noise up front .

Good point, and I agree with the above.

A cat delete and/or a muffler delete will yield considerably more whistle than adding a cold air intake.

Without changing anything else, on a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being the most whistle), adding a cold air intake will be a 1.
