Air intake ???

I'm looking at ordering an intake and wondering what set up is better the open style that replaces the battery box as part of the intake like the afe stg2 or something sealed like an s&b ?

we have had great results with the S&B and the AFE unit... it basically comes down to preference... one isnt any better than the other... we have both here: http://stealth-automotive.com/index....ategory_id=288

I have the AFE stage 1 with their box and the proguard 7 and it works awesome for me. The seal and fit is good and I wanted the maximum protection oiled filter, plus I got to keep my battery box. It is a little bit of a pain in the butt to take in and out but I wanted the ability to put my Donaldson back on in case of really dirty conditions like the desert or the beach. My buddy had the exact same setup as me except with a S&B and there is no noticable difference in power. If you are not worried about dirt or filtration, spend the extra $80 and get the S&B though. Their filter takes 30 secs to get out and they have a disposable filter if you are really lazy . Def a big plus.

That's why I had 2 re-usable filters-
So I could keep one clean and oiled on the shelf so when it's time to clean the dirty one I'm not stuck waiting for it to dry to oil it, just swap the dirty one out for the one I have ready to go on my shelf. Wash and oil the dirty filter and out back on shelf and repeat

Oh I sold my 6.4 so I have an extra proguard 7 filter for cheap only used 3-4 times, and it's been cleaned and oiled ready to go!

Are you saying that S&B filters lack filtration? S&B (from what I've read) has the best filtration of any other cold air intake system available.

Not at all. Their 8 layer system is one of the best on the market. But it IS a dry filter system. An oiled filter is going to out perform a dry filter in any condition. Having the saturation in the gauze gives it the ability to filter finer particles. People are comparing S&B's new disposable paper filter to have the filtration ability to an oiled filter, don't know how true that is though.

Bottom line is NOTHING beats the Donaldson, and I wanted the ability to put it back on in extreme condtions.
