The stock air filter on the 6.0L is the same technology used on the M1 tank. It is manufactured by Donaldson. You can't get a better intake than the stock unless you have modifications that call for a higher volume of air intake...I seem to recall that the rule of thumb is when your engine exceeds 500hp your stock intake may not provide sufficient volume of air.

If money is tight as you say then invest in GAUGES and COOLANT FILTRATION. You can get BOTH of these for LESS than one intake system.

Unless you are shooting for over 500rwhp leave the intake alone. Its more than adequate

Same answers every time.

I got a K&N Intake with a AEM Driflo filter for better filtration. Supposedly nets me a few extra ponies and some MPG. It's good because I don't have to buy another filter for a long time. Those things add up and that was my primary reason for getting the CAI. Plus it sounds good, drops the EGT temps and gives a little boost of power.

The only benefit to going to a CAI in a 6.0 is the filter is easier to change.

I havent changed my filter in 3 years still looks new

I agree 100%. Granted I am running an Airaid, but then again, I need to due to mods, but save your money and buy more go fast goodies

I plan on upgrading mine pretty soon. I have found a used S&B as well as a used AFE Stage 2 w/ Pro Dry Filter. I am in need of a new air filter, so I figure I can put that $50 towards an upgraded one, and to prepare for my future mods.

What do you guys think? AFE or S&B?

ON EDIT: I have heard that the AFE Pro Guard 7 has the best filtration for an aftermarket intake, and the closest to stock filtration. Can anyone attest to that? If it's better than the S&B, I'll probably just buy the AFE Stage 2 and throw a Pro Guard 7 filter on it.

I've got the K&N and everything else for now is stock.. I enjoy the whistle and can tell some difference in throttle response. I got it off of ebay for 100 less than any of the online stores. I hate the stock filter. Porbably the dumbest designs ever. Who cares if it filters well if its a pain in the *** to work with.
