Which Intake system

Im sure that this has been posted before, but I am looking into buying an intake. After I buy a tuner, and the cat delete pipe for my truck of course. The only one that I have seen any numbers for is K&N, and they claim 15HP and I think it was 30TQ. I was trying to do some research on other companies, but didnt have any luck with performance numbers on it. I would like some help deciding which intake to get. Truck is an 03

What year is your truck? The stock air box on the 6.0 is sufficent to support up to 500 hp. I personally would just do the zoodad mod which is making the openg larger where the intake pulls in air behind the grill. The filtration on the K&N is not up to snuff either. You will dust your turbo and be out a boat load of cash. Most of the guys i know run either the AFE Pro Guard 7 or a DIY tymar intake with a 4" piece of pipe and an open element napa filter. Do as you wish because it is your truck this is only my$.02

From what iv read you cant use DIY intakes/filters on 6.0's ^^^. K&N I heard is bad. I also remember reading fuel mileage isnt gained either?

This is correct, I misspoke

I also forgot to mention that if I was gonna do a CAI I would do a true CAI like Volant or S&B

True, but my vehicle is registered in Michigan where there is no inspection required.

Anyway, dont go with KN because they cant filter ****.

Ive heard voolant and AFE pro-guard 7 so far

The stock intake is good up to @500hp. You shouldn't need anything other than that, and it's actually a good intake......

Spartan war hammer, wicked wheel II, S&B intake, 4" flow pro w/dual mufflers, rigid dually's, IPad in dash, JL stealth box under rear seat, Hertz HSK 165 front and rear, JL 450/4, 500/1, line x, roll x tonneau, Titan Tank, and coming soon 6" lift, American force 22x11 Recon SS wrapped in 37's.

If you are going with an aftermarket intake, take a look at S&B. They have excellent flow and filtration numbers. The pricing is much lower than most others as well. here is a link with more info.

Thank you for the link

I wont be installing an intake for at least 6 months. I will stud the engine, and probably port and port match both the intake and exhaust ports to their respective manifolds, put a programmer on it, and a 5" exhaust before I do the intake.
