Air System Questions..

I have a few thoughts...

1. Anyone try a airraid throttle body spacer?

2. Any difference on a open intake to a closed intale grabbing air from the front of truck?

i might order a spacer depending on feedback and thinking of replacing my intake with a sealed. thanks guys

AFE Stage 2 will be your best bet.

Here's their newest release, looks pretty sweet.

Throttle body spacer is pointless on a diesel. Diesels don't even have a throttle body.

And I like my S&B intake. Really good value for the money.

Just forget about the spacer, the intake manifold and heads are too restrictive to gain any power. This also goes for a aftermarket intake elbow.

As for aftermarket air intakes, the stock unit is good for about 500hp, along with it will out filter any aftermarket filter. The only benefit to a aftermarket filter if the ease of removal and they are reusable. The down side of an aftermarket filter is you take a chance of dusting the turbo blades, sort of like sandblasting the blades.

If you want cooler fresh air you can do a ZOODAD MOD, between the air filter housing and grill is a fiberglass panel that can be cut out to get direct air flow to the filter. Do a search on ZOODAD MOD to get ideas of what members did.

The crank case vents into the intake. Do the CCV mod.
Throttle bodies are on gas engines. We are not gas engines. Therefore, we do not have throttle bodies.

I will add that in addition to dusting the turbo, you stand a chance of dusting the cylinders. Without the CCV mod, you should be safe since your intercooler will act like a big oil bath air cleaner.

The biggest advantage (for guys under 500 horse or so) of an aftermaket air filter is the ease of access. That's the only reason I haven't ditched the POS K&N on mine. I would LOVE an S&B......

I find it funny that every time someone posts up a intake question the same conclusion arises. It is pointless unless you have a modified engine producing over 550 hp. Save your money for something else that will actually improve your vehicles performance.
