New to the site/New owner of a 2006 F250 PS

I just bought this truck a few weeks ago and have a few questions to ask. The truck came with a Diablo U7165 programmer but from what I have been reading on here these are no good? Also, I had a question about cold air intakes, I see that everyone seems to like the AFE, S & B etc.. but I was wondering what is wrong with the K & N cold air intakes? Are they bad news? If so, why? I appreciate any help on this!

Take the Diablo, return your truck to stock and throw the Diablo away. Using a SCT with custom tunes is a MUCH better way to run your motor. Unless you are putting down 500HP the OEM intake system filters better and will flow all the air you need for the motor.

Questions?

Do you think the diablo has done any damage??

I am kind of concerned now as to if the previous owner used this programmer to the point that it could have done some damage. I sure hope not. Also, I guess I do not need a cold air intake then. But I am still kind of curious as to why nobody likes the K & N cold air intakes versus others. Any answers?

Get the intake if you want it. Don't be 'scared' of doing any damange. imo. I am curious about why everybody dislikes the k&n versus others as well? I've never understood and and I've heard it since I started visiting powerstroke forums but never have I seen any evidence or specs that they have done any damage.

Yea I really would like to understand it as well

Any of you seasoned powerstroker's out there have any insight as to why k & n cold air intakes are not the way to go?

people dont like k&n because it filters less than the normal filters, and therefore lets more dirt in and can dust the turbos causing damage.

I believe it, its pretty hard to flow more, without letting more in. And the motor is expensive enough,why risk it when your stock intake is more than enough?
