what air intake to get?

Should I stick with the stock filter and do the zoodad or should I buy aftermarket? I've heard the stock is the best you can get, but all the aftermarkets show better air flow over stock. Any advice is greatly appreciated

Unless you are trying to go big HP.... over 500 ponies, there is no real reason, IMHO to change from the stocker. Save that money for other goodies. The Zoodad mod is basically a freebie. I hope this helps.

AFE lets your truck breath more (dyno proven). Your 6.0 will thank you. You will never have to buy another stock paper filter, it pays for its self.

Not a good idea on a diesel.

why does everyone say that? Are there no or little gains with a air filter setup? Has anyone ever tried a before and after dyno?
