Intake system upgrades and maintenance

With the other stuff out of the way I'm now wanting to look at intake system upgrades and maintenance. Here is the stuff I know of:

Aftermarket air cleaner
Aftermarket turbocharger
OEM metal cold side intercooler pipe upgrade
Aftermarket intercooler pipes
Aftermarket intercooler
Aftermarket intercooler pipe boots
Aftermarket intake elbow
Methanol injection system
Nitrous system
Ported intake manifold
6.4 intake manifold swap
CCV re-route

Now, I know the factory air cleaner is generally regarded as being good up to 500 HP and it filters better than the aftermarket setups, but I plan on trying to push that number and am thinking of getting the S&B setup for the easier to change filter and the sound as well. From the reading I have done the factory intake elbow and intercooler pipes are not the restriction in the system and that the intake and heads are your first restrictions, so aftermarket units are not necessary unless those items are addressed first. I've also read the factory intercooler is generally good up to 45 PSI which is the point where the end tanks are compromised. I will be getting the aftermarket intercooler boots as they have shown to be better than the factory ones and my factory ones are beginning to tear. I won't be doing a ported intake or the 6.4 intake manifold swap. I've already done the CCV re-route and have it dumping above the front axle. I'm thinking of doing methanol injection though and passing on nitrous as this is my daily driver.

Anything I'm missing or more info on the above stuff?

Just a FYI, the stock intake is the best $ can buy and good to 500HP.

So unless your also getting larger Inj's the majority of your mods will just lighten your wallet.

Matt from CED sucked the filter minder in on one of his trucks with 155/stock and a 62FMW. That's under 500.

Replace the filter minder with a new one. Test and report your findings.

I made 583hp with just turbo and injectors using stock dirty air filter, stock intake manifold, stock intercooler, stock intake elbow, no water meth, no nitrous, etc...


Not saying they don't help... but I still find it odd that people limit the stock intake to 500hp???

Turbo and injectors are by far the best bang for your buck.

Just FYI... very few people hit 500hp on 155s. Not saying it is not possible. But not common
