Intake Questions

Ok, I have been thinking about switching from my stock air intake to an aftermarket one. I have checked out Banks Ram Air intake and the aFe Power MagnumFORCE Stage-2 Si PRO 5R. I like that they give more flow and the improved MPG is the reason I am looking, but am I going to sacrifice filtering too much going with one of these systems? Also, if you would suggest running a different system, what? Or stay stock?

if my truck would have had a stock filter on it I would have left it. Those are the best filter to use up to 500 RWHP. keep it stock and save the money.

Most people will tell you the stock box is good up to 500rwhp but I know several people with aftermarket intakes on 6.0s that are no where near 500rwhp and claim throttle response and mpg gains. Also I wouldn't be too worried about the filtering on either one of the two systems you mentioned. Yes they are not going to filter as much as a stock Donaldson filter, however they ARE going to let more air in and I know my dad's 6.0 has had an aftermarket intake on it since it was almost new and its pushing 200k miles with the stock turbo and no problems.

I had an S&B and couldn't tell any difference. Trucks are different, so keep that in mind. If you really want one, S&B and AFE seem to be the preferred amongst most, and try to stay clear of oiled filters. K&N's were notorious for being over oiled and gumming up the turbos. Any other oiled filter can have the same effect if over oiled, K&N just caught the flak. My wife and I run AFE dry filters on both our trucks and have worked just fine.

I have the Banks Ram Air in my 2004 6.0 f 250 Harley Davidson and you do notice a diff. in the throttle response, mpg I wouldnt be able to tell you right now, but I do like the after market intake over stock any day of the week. In MY opinion just because the stock is good up to 500hp doesnt mean its best. again this is my opinion.
