Should i change my air intake?

I've heard in some threads how these "cold air box" intakes are very bad for the turbos in our 6.0's.....should i change my AFE stage 2 intake?Its the full set up which incorporates the battery with it,supposed to isolate and control the warmer air from motor from getting into turbo!!Is this bad for my turbo?I have a banks enclosed air intake but need some factory patrs now to put it in(old stock battery tray and tube from turbo to box)..whats the word around the campfire??...heres a basic pic of the intake i use

Why would "colder" air be bad? Never heard that one before.

Well aparently these type of set ups dont filter the air very well.....ive read it somewhere,thats why im asking!These cold air boxes are known to let dirt into turbo......was just curious if they were rumors or any trueth to it!In theory the colder dense air would forsure be benificial.....and am hoping the AFE delivers that....just not sure because of some theories out there

Ooohhh you mean the type of filter. AFE seems to be good at filtering. Stock is best of course.

Aftermarket intakes don't filter as well as the stock setup, some are worse than others. This leads to fine particles getting through the filter and "dusting" the turbo (think sandblasting the compressor wheel). Again some intakes/filters are worse than others, AFE is one of the better ones.

I'd leave the AFE on it. What fiter do you have on it?

Keep the filter clean and be careful with the oil. I'd buy one of their dry filters to replace the oiled one. Excess oil can be suckedthrough the filter and into the turbo, with negative effects.

The Banks filter won't filter any better than the AFE.

I personally would leave the AFE intake unless it is hindering your performance because the intake air temps are too high. If you decided to switch to anything it should be S&B as their intake is the only one I have found that is compared to the stock one. It flows more and filters to 98% of the stock one but only holds 10% of the dirt that a stock one holds. I dont think the AFE filters as good as the S&B but is probably good enough as long as you clean it fairly often. JMO.
