Intake for 6.0 with SCT

I have a 2005 F250 6.0 with an SCT Tuner and straight pipe. I was wonderin what intake would be the best for my truck with good power and MPG gains but wouldn't kill my wallet.

I ran the Airaid in my 05. The stock element is expensive to replace, and its a pain in the but to change. That is the big reason for an aftermarket intake on a 6.0.

If I had to choose, I'd go S&B this time around.

The stock unit is fine, flows good and filters great.

BUT..... when it comes time to replace it, You might as well get something aftermarket with a cleanable filter. That's what I'm going to do, my stocker is still ok, but probably not for to much longer, I'll be replacing it with an AFE unit

I'm with Pat. I love my AFE. The Pro Guard 7 or the pro dry filters are great. For the money I'd probably buy an S&B new. I bought my AFE used.

I have a K&N that is fully enclosed on mine. I love it. But you can not tell much of a difference over stock.

I would NOT suggest K&N....actually I'd highly recommend against it. They make decent products for gas engine applications, but........

They use the same filters for their turbo charged diesel applications, the filters just DO NOT filter well enough for our engines. They'll flow plenty of air, but let WAYYYYYYY to much dirt/dust/whathaveyou, into the torbo.

Just my though....

Ok here is the filter details: K&N 99.10 efficent
S&B 99.50
AIRRAID 99.15
AFE 98.7
K&N has a 1 million mile warrenty, and have been making filters longer than any1 of these other clowns. All of the rest of these guys use the same filter for any application as well. I have a K&N on everything I own, and have never had a mins problem out of anything due to air particulaes.
