Best CAI out there?

Ok guys. As some of you know I am fairly knew to the forum, having just purchased my first powerstroke. I have been looking around at a lot of "sealed" CAI systems. I have seen them range in price and materials, but wanted to know what the best bang for the buck will be. I've read a lot about the stock box being good until x amount of horsepower, and that's great, but I would like a sealed CAI system lol. Any tips or advice out there? I had been mulling over an S&B......

Seems like a lot of intake for the money and looks pretty kick a** too. Not sure what I want to do, not being to familiar with the truck.

S&B is pretty cool and cheaper than the AFE one

I had a AFE but then put on a S&B and like the S&B a LOT better.
The pre filter really helps to keep the main filter clean.

+10 on this. If you're not going to go to a MUCH larger turbo the factory setup is great just the way it is. Just make sure you use the BLUE filter media and make sure it's a Donaldson replacement (OEM manufacturer), especially if you do the zoodad mod.

And from what I've read, the zoo dad mod is a waste lol. So just keep the stock set up.
