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

That's great but I already said that stock is not an option as I dont have it anymore and I am not going to go buy another one since I do plan on making more than 500hp. Thanks but no thanks.

Do the Zoodad before you get a diff intake. See what it does to your IATs. I'm curious to see how much it really does help.

Sorry didn't see that part. Also, there are some who turn off the signatures therefore don't see them.

I have the s&b kit and have no problems with it. The only time I have seen the iat temps high is when I am sitting still.....other than that it stays at ambiant temps.
