The stock system flows all the air you need.

No banks as already been mentioned.

You really don't need an aftermarket intake anyway. For a couple of reasons.

1. Quality and filtration is very good already on the stock unit and will handle what you need for a stock or just a tuned truck.

2. While a/m intakes do flow more, they don't flow more until they are outside the rpm range of the truck. Peak hp and tq rpms are at 3,300 and 2,000 respectively. The soonest that an a/m intake will flow more air then a stock intake for a 6.0 is at 3,700 rpm(that I've seen, someone knows of one within the 6.0s powerband please show it to me), well outside the range of the 6.0 unless you've done mods that push up your rpm range and that would mean injectors and/or turbo(s).

Now if your looking at an intake for other reasons such as being able to clean and reuse or ease of cleaning or changing, then you might have something over the stocker. However, for me that wouldn't be enough of a reason to swap it considering that would be the only benefit that I could see from it.

Unless your just dead-set on getting an a/m intake, I wouldn't do it.

tex makes a good point, you dont really need one, but if you are going to get one S&B is a good choice great bang for the buck.
