S&B is the way to go. Flow and filtration numbers are excellent and the price is fair. Let me know if I can help.

I have a Volant intake on my truck and it works well but like Raul said there is really no need to upgrade the intake period until you do more to the truck.

The aftermarket intake does make the turbo whistle a little louder though.

I heard that it was closer to 500hp before needing to go a/m? However, more then likely he won't get to the 400+hp(depending on how much that + means on top of that 400 rating) rating with just tuning alone to where it would be a necessity, so either one doesn't really matter.

There is no real need to upgrade from your stock intake unless you are doing some other upgrades, such as injectors, turbos, etc.... The stock intake will take good care of your needs until you are ready to start pushing that 500 hp mark. I personally have switched to an aftermarket intake but I had to due to my mods asking for more. I have the Airaid. There are other brands out there, that just happens to be the one I had. I think you would be find sticking with your stocker and save your money for other mods. Oh btw, Welcome to the org!

The stock filter will last longer, filter more dirt and junk, and still flow better than the aftermarket units. Save those bucks till you hit the 500+ mark.

I put an AFE stage II air filter kit on my 03 6.0l and not totally impressed yet. First of all,it doesn't seem to fit right (won't clear the intercooler bracket. And the filter is in ther tight so I ripped the prefilter a tad trying to get it out. Also,I had the dry synthetic filter and I don't think it will stand up to the dusty back roads we have here in Alberta Canada. They claim 19hp and 114 ftlbs of tourqe???? I don't know about that but I'm going to take it off and go back to stock.If it was making a difference I'll notice it when I take it off more so than when I installed it. (learned this from experience). I heard S&B makes a good filter and it filters well too. So many guy's here in Alberta have dusted there engines including the truck I bought. The previous owner had a K&N and it dusted at 136,000 km... I'd recomend stock too from what I've heard about the aftermarket stuff.
