Airaid 400-131-1 or S&B 75-5032

S&B is $269 everywhere.
Airaid is between $240 and $280.

Im really looking for the differences in the 2 air filters. The airaid looks like it can flow more air since it takes air from the front OEM location and the top of the air filter box...

Still not sure.

What air filter do you suggest and reasons????

Thank you

I suggest the S&B and it is really only because they post what their filter both filters and flows at and Airaid does not. I know that the S&B doesn't hold as much dirt as the stock filter does but I don't care, I need all the flow I can get with the turbo that I have and I think S&B does the job just fine. Hope this helps man.

I also recommend the S&B good quality at a good price. I had an air raid on my v10 and I think the S&B is a little better quality. You will definitely hear a difference with a cold air intake, it will really make your motor scream.

What about the AIRAID drop in filter 860-341.
S&B does not have a drop in filter.

I found it for $53.


The S&B system is $269 and the AFE is $242.

Is the intake system really worth the extra $200? compaired to the drop in filter for $53.

I did an AiRaid drop in, Zoodad, and ditched the front cover off the OEM box. The result + 1~2 mpg. That filter catches a lot of dirt. I live in a sandy/dusty area, 6 years later things are still clean on the front of the turbo.

Sorry I don't have any kool kids numbers to post, but bang per buck, they can keep their cai's, I only need the filter.

I've seen a picture of your intake setup and imo that is the best route to go. Why spend $150+ for a piece of plastic that connect to the turbo, the stock plastic get's the job done imo. Drop the airaid filter in, maybe some silicone and spend the money you saved on fuel, jmo.
