Very well said. Unless you're gonna do some pretty hefty mods there's no use to waste your money on another intake. Buy some gauges or a good exhaust and you'll be $$$ ahead and your engine will love you for it.

Thanks to all who replied....

I keep my truck looking as close to stock as possible, more fun when the little games begin...

So it looks like better airflow will be accomplished on the OTHER end of the machine...I gutted the kitty, lost the muffler.... sounds good under wot, quiet while cruis'n... on the other hand... starting to like the looks of the 2009's... I need a new toy...........rockwoot:

Send a message via AIM to Raul@Stealth Automotive
your stock intake will flow more than enough air.... if you were looking to do a full intake i would highly suggest S&B... it will flow as much air as the AFE and still filter 99.53% of dirt: Stealth Automotive. S&B 6.0L Intake

if your looking to just replace the filter i would do this: Stealth Automotive. 03-07 Ford 6.0L Powerstroke OEM AFE Drop in replacement filter

let me know if you have any other questions

-Raul

I used just a replacement filter from airaid, and just now replaced that with an AFE stage 2, I got it for $200 and it is well worth it, dont waste your time buying just a replacement filter, replace the stock box it is what is cutting flow...
