Cold Air Intake?

i have believed that a k&n air filter were the best for anything. i was told that there are some that have problems. Any suggestions on a different kind or would a k&n be a good idea for a cold air intake?

Thanks:

I've had several different rigs with different intakes. Always seem to go back to K&N. Some say they let in way too much particals. Well, they claim to to pull a lot of air....Go Figure!! A close observation clearly shows it wont suck junk to me! IMO I think K&N has a good reputation!! Self Satisfaction! If you want further protection out of your filter.....there are pre-filters or filter socks you can buy

Definately check out the Do-It-Yourself filter setup -- much cheaper, but you have to keep buying filters @ $30-$40 a pop every time they get dirty... but still cheap enough to get you buy for a while..

as far as aftermarket, definately check out AFE. The are some of the best you can buy!

The problems with the K&N is that some can allow dusting of the turbo -- easy way to check is to look at your intake tube -- if you see dust, that is bad...




EDIT:

I also want to edit this to say, you have a 6.0L -- SPEND YOUR $$$ ON A DIFF MOD! You likely won't be seeing the HP that would require or need an aftermarket Intake -- I'd say just buy an NICE filter and do the Zoodad mod (cut a hole in the rad support in front of the intake tube) and you will be set -- no need to spend $300+ on a whole intake when your stock intake is GREAT!

What is the difference between a stage 1 and a stage 2 filter? Which one of these filter from AFE will be cheaper but still a great filter and let a lot of CLEAN air in?

When I go it'll be an AFE stage II. Yes what you've been told about K&N is true. Also just b/c you don't see the dust getting past it doesn't mean it's not getting by. Get an oil analysis done before and after installing a K&N and check out the difference in the silicates. The dust gets by, and is absorbed into the oil alot of the time and of course gets fed through your engine. Yummy.
