Which Air Intake
Ok so I think I actually have a HOT air intake rather than a COLD air intake based on the fact that my IAT running down the free way is about 20+F over ambient and climbs as high as 50F at idle when OAT is in the 80's. I bought this kit, which is an AFE stage II, about 3 years back and when I didnt know anything about these trucks (not saying I do now either but do have some wrench time) and do not have my stock intake system anymore. When I installed the kit it actually did do some improvement IMO as I did see some increase in fuel mileage but when I to it off to install a RR fuel kit and installed it, my truck just never really quite felt right after that as in I have been running more boost than before and I think it is because my air intake is sucking way more HOT air than before so my air density is not as high. I know the stock intake is good for 500hp but I am looking to go beyond that in about a year so I dont really want to go buy a new air intake. I am definitely going to get a sealed one this time but the question is which one? I am leaning most towards S&B but like the claims that banks has on theirs and how they compare it to the competition (even though they havent tested the ford units.) So I am posing the question here to see what the experts have to say. I would appreciate your opinion and why you think the way you do. Not just "S&B" or "AFE". You know what I mean. Thanks
