Custom Intake

Well I was looking at intakes for my 6.0L the other day and thought.. I could make that!! (hopefully alot cheaper than 300 bucks!) So thats what im trying to do. Im going to try and base it off the afe stage 2. Ill buy a filter make the box around the filter, and not sure what im going to do for hose to the intake. Just thought I would post to see if anyone here has done it or has any ideas or input. I would like some advice on the hose to the intake. Thanks for any help.

Most guys prefer the stock setup over anything aftermarket actually.

Keep the stocker. The stock will flow plenty of air and filter great. Only real benefit to aftermarket is its easy to take out and clean filter.

Stocker is good up to 500 HP, no need to switch unless you want bling factor

I understand the stock intake is great on the 6.0s but id like the custom one for ease of use and hopefully in the future ill be adding some more serious mods to my truck.

A good A/M filter is ~$100. IMHO you should just buy a kit there is a lot more engineering in it than you think..

Cut the front snorkel short. Makes OEM filter swaps simple and easy.
