i'm also thinking about getting an intake... i've heard its useless unless you are pushing over 500+hp. but i'm not sure either i would like to know if it would be worth it to get an intake like afe stage 2 with proguard vs. dry, whichever is better

the stock intake system is usually good for up to 400hp.... you can easily reach that with a sct tuner. after that an aftermarket intake system is recommended.....

oil filters will actually filter better than dry filters according to AFE and S&B as long as you regularly maintain and clean them.

if it were me the best bang for your bucks is the S&B intake. it filters as good as the AFE with a lot cheaper price.

if more than 1 of you guys are looking to get one i can give you guys a group deal on them... PM me if your interested

I run a modified Airaid, I took the bracket that IS supposed to seal against the hood off, cut and fabbed a 1/4" piece of plexiglass as a cover. Did the Zoodad mod as well. Works great, you can see your filter and determine when to clean.

I was reading in the diesel power mag. about the egr delete and I saw this intake in there..did a little research about it. looks kinda cool...Idk about the foam intake though! But it would match my red CFM. heres a link to it.

I have read on some forums about that intake throwing codes and such? I don't know much else about it.

AEM has been throwing codes on the 6.0L AFE is good but way over priced, and S&B is just a little bit above k&n...for the money, power, quality, warranty, and customer service, AIRAID is the route to go. TrueFlow is supposed to be decent, but I haven't run them, I just know a few guys that work for them so I can't give you a real opinion.
