K&N Intakes

Gentlemen, I talk to guys all the time on the NATION who say K&N Intakes arent bad for diesel's, of course you still have those guys who will swear on all that is holy that they do hurt diesel's. I had mine on my truck for a year with NO problems. Only reason i mines off my truck is because i bought an S&B CAI w/ Intake elbow. So IMHO, theres nothing wrong with K&N.

I can't say that K&N is good, on a diesel or not. All I know is when I tried to clean the one my gasser I had the same problem of holes as everyone on the ORG talks of. Must have been a bad time for them.

I have had one on my truck for 58k miles and have never had any problems. I used to do the white rag test and it was always clean. I have a turbo powered VW sand rail with a K&N and never have problems, The motor has over 60hrs of playing, so it has seen alot of sand. If you cant clean and oil the filter right it is better off to stick with the oem filter. It is the same filter as S&B but the only difference is the S&B comes with a TARD proof oiler.

I would hardly say that its goose's opinion...
that looks like hard data right there...
Working at the dealer and seeing all the different things 6.0's come in with everything I have seen would lead me to not use anything other than the oem filter...
Did you know that the stock filter on a 6.0 will hold aprox 3 lbs of dirt...

Also I have seen turbos with aftermarket filters in front of them that the turbine blades look sandblasted...
I would stick with stock.
just my .02

This is what im refering to as his "Opinion". Im glad that OEM can hold 3 lbs of dirt, but my K&N and S&B breath WAY better than OEM. But as said before, you staying with stock is YOUR OPINION.
