Air intake filter problems

What kind of air filters is everyone running? I am running a K&N cone but I recently did work to the truck including tunes and when I opened the hood today, my cone filter was all but turned inside out. WOT I am seeing between 23-28 PSI. The filter is obviously restricting the flow enough to be caving in.. and this filter was new and clean. I replaced it with my Green filter and one WOT run it destroyed it. Collapsing it completely. What filters stand up to the high flow demand of high boost?

S&B, most here will tell you the K&N is junk on our trucks and will cause issues with your turbo!

OEM is a good filter. As stated above S&B is also a good option.

S&B makes direct replacements for the K&N kits.

Regardless of media type an open element under the hood is about the worse type of filter for power as the IAT1 temps will be about 40*F higher. A good filter element whether aftermarket or stock with a snorkel that uses the factory location or there about is great. I have found that I like the AIRAID drop in which I use a non factory element which uses a factory setup so the MAF readings are correct. Normally though I just use a stock element.
