Air intake kit vs. high flow OEM replacement filter

Is there really a big difference between an S&B intake kit and the S&B oem replacement filter ? I'm sure replacing the filter with a high flow filter is beneficial, but do you really get that much more air in from the intake kits to justify the additional $200 ?

No, not really. I like the replacement filters from the stand point of not having to buy another filter under normal maintenance conditions.

Glad to hear that, I think I'm going to just run a S&B filter and save some cash.

I think it depends on the year truck you have.... on the 6.0L the intake design is actually very good... .but on the 7.3L the intake tube makes too many severe bends....

Sorry - I should have put that in. I have an '07 F250. I was thinking if the intake design was good and benefit could be realized from just a high flow filter, with the $ saved, I was thinking of putting it towards a free flowing exhaust to help let that air out.

Good choice. A 4" system will let it exhale nicely and sound good too, you want to get rid of that cat for sure if possible.
