Which Cold air box to buy?

Who makes a 100% cold air box assy for the 6.0 ? Saw a box today,nice set up but it would also take in under hood heat not so good in my opinioni'm sure it flows lots of air just not cool fresh air like the stocker, any recommendations?

please dont put any K&N product on your truck lol... do a search of K&N and you will see that very few people run them on our trucks...

if you want a full enclosed unit then the S&B is def the way to go... its only $269.00 which makes them a great buy....

that being said... your stock air box will flow more than enough air to support 400hp to the wheels... you dont need a new airbox but if you just want to get one get the S&B....

S&B 6.0L Intake

let me know if you have any questions

Agreed, S&B is the way to go. Their flow and filtration numbers are some of the best out there and they have a true cold air design.

I use the ZOODAD and I modded my OEM intake. Using my SCT to datalog the intake temps the only time temps raised was on initial takeoff (20* max), after 25MPH the temps dropped to ambient temps.

I am happy with my banks intake. It is very well built and fit into the stock location very well. A CAI with the Zoodad mod will put you on you way to making big power. Or it could be stated that it will be a benefit when you want to make over 400hp
