What kind of air intake?

I just got a 2005 f250 king ranch turbo 6.0L. I haven't done much modifications before I wanna start doing so. I want to put in a new air take but I wasn't sure if I should cold air or ram or what and what brand would and filter has the best efficiency

Thanks in advance

No need to waste money on one. The stock filter is good for up to 500hp and filters better then anything else

do a S&B if your not to hot on maintenance with the oil filters. if you dont keep up with cleaning and oiling then those filters will kill a turbo

OEM air filter will hold over 1400+ grams of dust and dirt before it's clogged. S&B filters will clog after 200+ grams. More maintenance, less flow in the long run.

This info is quite clear and found in the S&B provided ISO 9000 testing report. It's a nice to twist reality to make sales.

Personally I hate the filters that you hafta oil. I have a AFE stage II with a dry filter. Matt at CED makes some nice intakes.

I run air raid . its easy to install and works great . I also run the air raid pre filter , looks cool and saves from washing the filter all the time

Their test did prove the oe filter filters better but it also proved the s&b flows more air. The statement about the stock filter being good up to 500hp is misleading because it really limits you to about 500hp. There are guys out there with dyno sheets to show that the s&b filter got them to and above 500hp. Where the oe was holding them back. One that I read but didn't book mark so I can't provide a link was the highest hp he could achieve was in the mid 400's but then changed to an aftermarket cai and broke 500hp. So yes you will have to clean it frequently and no it won't filter quite as good as factory but no matter what hp level you are at the cai will help make more power.
