Do I Need An Intake?

I was reading an article in Diesel Power Mag and different power combo's for 6.0s and they all included a cold air intake. I know I've read over and over again that the stock one is good for 500hp, but I'm just wondering if I'm at the power level that its time to get one?? I know I have plenty of fuel, so now I'm addressing the air side. They also installed larger intercooler pipes and a CFM+ intake elbow. I've read plenty of people say the CFM is a waste of money also

I noticed a drop in EGT's and less smoke at WOT after the install of my S&B. Havn't had any issues out of it. I know they say the stocker is good to 500hp, but I know the S&B is allowing more air through. I wish I had done the intake and exhaust sooner.

Thanks for the reply man. I was thinking S&B if I get one. I really need to do something about my egt's so hearing you say you noticed a drop, makes me lean toward getting an intake even more

Even with my 155's, AD2, Looney Wild?? I was thinking it should be close to the 500rwhp mark.

Is there proof of this? Of course the stock filters better but correct me Plz but ur not filtering the air your kids breathe! More exhaust needs more air? Right? More fuel needs more air and exhaust?

Agreed. The stocker flows plenty of clean air. Aftermarket intakes typically flow more air - but less clean air. Turbos like clean air....

So I'm not at the 500hp mark yet? Haven't had the truck on a dyno, but rode in my bro-in-laws Duramax that put down 510rwhp and they feel REALLY close in power. He said the same after driving my truck.

How about 6.4ls making well over 500hp on a stock airbox?

LOL At the dyno and my cousins Dodge makes about 450 HP and my truck feels stronger than his. So that means I should be at 500 eh?

I get what your saying, but Cummins are sometimes dyno queens. Grayson, did you read the thread about live tuning from Bill at PHP? Then I would get a chance to put my truck on the dyno and know for sure what she's putting down
