What is a safe CAI for the 6.0?

I bought a 2003 F250 with a 6.0. The truck came with a K&N air filter. I highly doubt it's the right one for my truck and I can tell the thing hasn't been oiled/cleaned in a long time. I was going to put the stock airbox back in but new from Ford is more money than I want to spend and I can't seem to find a used one. I am not looking for any HP gains just a CAI that is made for the 6.0 and is safe for my motor. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

There are a lot of members running the setup from S&B, that seems like the CAI to go with if you don't intend to run the Stock setup.

If cost is the hold up against running the stock intake, you can try and find someone who has taken the stocker off their truck and see if they'll sell it to ya. Just another option, I like the filtration you get with the Donaldson.

By the way, when you get that K&N off, make sure you inspect your turbo for any signs of damage.

For the money I dont think you can beat a S&B. They wont hold as much dirt as an OEM filter will but they do offer dry replacements if you want so you dont have to worry about cleaning and oiling. Of course they do offer the reuseable ones as well. They look good too IMO.

Some (or maybe all) of the 2005 OEM intakes didn't use the MAF sensor, so that would not work on a 03-04 or 06-07 truck

My 05 has a MAF sensor. It is in the same location as the picture above.

Every year intake is interchangeable. I bought my stocker off ebay it was off an 06. No issue. If you wanna save a couple bucks get a stock airbox and put a drop in airaid or afe filter in it. Save at least $100 probably.
