Question Best Intake? Any oppinion?

I recently bought an 07 F250 SRW and have gauges, Outlook/Triple Dog, 4' turbo back not cat/muff. And I really cant decide on 1 intake! I would really appreciate all of your inputs. Thanks in advance.

You don't need an intake when all your running is a programmer. The only benefit that you will get from an intake flowing more air is going to be at high rpms that more then likely you won't see under normal driving experiance(even hotrodding it on the street every now and then). Until you start messing with more mods then just a programmer leave the stock intake alone.

FWIW, speaking as a formal bullydog user(exact same setup as yours), get custom tunes. It'll be better for your truck then bullydog.

what Javi said....

and ill add that your stock intake will flow more than enough air for what you have... but if you had to get one i would highly recommend a S&B S&B 6.0L Intake

let me know when your ready to step up to custom tunes...

Your second actually. I just skipped SCT because once what I'm testing is mass produced it will give SCT a run for it's money(except for those hard-core SCT fans that just steadfastly refuse to try something else).

It's not spartan holding up the cables, it's drewtech. I have their test cable that they made and it's significantly more complicated piece of hardware versus the cable on the SCT. Matt lucked out with the 6.4, not so much with the 6.0 on getting this stuff to work right off the bat.

Thanks for all the input, but I will buy an intake and I have been looking at custom tunes. I have a friend that wants this bully dog, so I will be needing an alternative very soon like this week! I havent read much on the SCT so dont know much about them or the tuning capabilities(have to be better than this tri dog). Someone that knows a little if you could give me some info it would be greatly appreciated. I would only want an economical tune a performance tune you could say, and a rather extreme tune for the anger management drives. Thanks again

trust bud save your 300 or 400 bucks from that intake and invest it into an egr delete and a sct tuner or if its ever released the new spartan 6.0 tuner. the only way to go, unless then you start pushing 600 horses then buy one
