Your going to get mixed opinions on this. Some people claim no difference at all and it was a waste of money and others claim mpg and throttle response gain. I think all trucks are different and its hard to say if you will notice a difference or not.

I like my S&B and wouldnt run my truck without one. I had the AFE stage 2 and it was nice but I like the S&B better. I dont think they are a waste of money.

Numbers don't lie ...S&B doesn't hold up for the long haul. Expect more maintenance in the long run.

It depends what your goals are. S&B is one of the best aftermarket intakes out there. If you just want a reliable, low maintenance truck (why did you buy a 6.0 ) then stick with stock. It will flow enough and hold lots of debris so it filters great without being changed a lot. If you want better performance, mileage, and don't mind tinkering with the truck, I say buy it. There is NO question that it will flow better than the stock filter and filters almost as well, but it will need to be cleaned or replaced more often.

BTW the stock filter is a PITA to change, so it may be worth it just for the ease of maintenance.

S&B will clog faster therefor flow LESS than an OEM filter for the same amount of dirt/dust. Less flow results in POOR performance and MPG.

Modifying the OEM intake is easier, cost less and achieves more than any any aftermarket intake could EVER.

Cut down as much as you want....the more you cut the bigger the hole will get. Makes OEM filter swaps take less than 5 mins.

I like this idea, I just took the entire front cover off. Personally, I don't think the piping that comes with the afe or s&b is worth the money. Im gonna put a drop in airaid filter into the stock airbox. Jmo.

my afe didn't get good maint may have cleaned it once a year but still had better mpg, also even when a bird made a nest in it i did feel the difference but my turbo was still perfectly clean inside with no sign of damage on the wheel no brainer for me. i have the stocker on now and w or w/o the front it doesn't perform as well or get the mpg. can't wait for my s&b to get here monday.
