Which Cold Air Intake??

ok so I'll appologize in advance because I know theres a million threads on already on here about which cold air intake is better than the other. I would just like to know what YOU guys individually are running.

and the full set up like brand, model etc. for example (s&b stage...?)

I'm asking because I want the full preformance kit obviously and cant decide which is the way to go.

Thanks for the answers and help in advance

Well your stock intake is pretty free flowing and supposedly good up to 500hp. There is a little debate on this though.

With that said if I were to get an intake then it would probably be an s&b

Zoodad mod, air box front on the floor in my shed, drop in AiRaid filter (into OEM box), and 6 years in a sandy/dusty a$$ desert. Best $75 that I have spent on my truck.

wow I had no idea the stock air system was that good on these. problem is the guy who owned it before me didnt like that those filters were so expensive so he changed the system completely. not much is different besides the filter is now a huge rectangle and costs about 50 dollars. but they suck something awful that is why I would like to change.

so heres a question, if I choose to go AFE for example and buy thier kick *** set up and spend 350+ dollars on it, is that thing gonna breathe without the zoodad mod and be worth it? I dont wanna spend that kinda money and not see a difference in power or mpg or sound however slight it maybe. And I also dont wanna spend that kinda money and that filter suck and have to be replaced like the others.

Keep the stock box and put an afe or airaid drop in filter, like karl said. Or I would recommend the airaid setup if you still have the stock black plastic tubing that attaches to turbo. The airaid setup works and is priced competitively against other systems. Use the money you save on diesel fuel.

thanks for the tips. but why are so many of you guys running the noncleanable filters? after a while you have to throw it away and buy a new one when you could just clean your old one up and drop it back in. why did you choose that route? it seems like that would cost you more money in the long run or is there an advantage I'm not seeing?

From my understanding its because the cleanable filters don't filter as well as the non-cleanable filters do.

Remember, in a diesel, filtration is key
