Wanting Your Input on 6.0 Air Filter Setups

Just looking to get your opinion on what air filters have or have not worked for you. What you liked and disliked about your setup. If you could improve your aftermarket setup what would you want? Does anyone out there want an oil catch can for your 6.0 air filter(especially you guys that tow 24/7)? Just looking for your input

Out stock set up is good until 500hp. If you absolutely want to put an aftermarket one on make sure it is a dry filter, oil ruins turbos

^ +1 Keep the stocker on there as there hasn't been a proven alternative that is as good as the OEM filter and if your not going for performance than stick with the stock filter.

Re: Wanting Your Input on 6.0 Air Filter Setups

One more for what they said, but if you do go aftermarket S&b will probably be the most recommended. I'm putting on my s&b today or tomorrow. Had the thing sitting around since the last summer

An oil catch can would only help the CCV not the air filter. Plenty of options already out there for that mod.

IMHO the stock set up is a royal POS! Time and again I tried to get those filters out and they never came out easy. Busted nucks, bleeding fingers and a sore back finially did me in. I beat the last one out with a 3lb sledge hammer. I just can't play with junk!! I got a killer deal on a Banks and it was a breeze to install. I've had to take it out a couple of times and it's out in just a couple of minutes without a fight and without a sledge. I know some here say that the oiled filters are killers but I just haven't found that to be true. I can't find anything wrong with my turbo and it's got 162K on it now.

YMMV

The biggest problem with oiled filters is people don't clean them and they get so full that the dirt just starts pushing through the filter

I'm going to chime in with my thoughts or opinion which is just that. #1 the turbo is going to see way more oil from the CCV than a oiled filter unless you over oil your filter like a bafoon. Also if a oiled filter is cleared properly and often it filters well. Now I will admit the factory filter is one of the best filters for removing dirt from the air and will support a good bit of power. I will also say though my with my setup I can start to suck the filter minder when running the stock setup which doesn't happen with my Banks setup. I tend to run the factory setup over the winter months due to running a lower power tune or stock and the increased road dust/salt dust.
