I have yet to see an aftermarket air filter(pick any of them) that flows more air then the stock within then powerband of the 6.0. Peak hp is at 3,300 rpms, peak tq is at 2,000 rpms and the best rpms that 6.0 a/m filters flow more then the stock one is at 3,700 rpms. In order to bring that into the powerband of the 6.0 you have to do more then just a tuner. We are talking turbo(s) and injectors here. My setup puts me at 3,900 rpms, just to give you an idea.

The quality of the stocker is pretty damn good as well.

Same issue, different brand. If your going to be looking at a/m filters for performance reasons, don't bother unless you really mod. If your looking at them for other reasons(re-use, cleaning, installation etc) then that's another thing, but for performance you're buying a lot of hype then substance.

not looking to make my f250 into a race car or nothing, but mostly the stock air filter is a total pain in the neck to remove and it is $79.99 to replace, i have no thoughts that it will not work, but looking at the longtivity of a wash it and good to go.

really i need to replace my stocker and i am looking at spending $79.99 for it, but plans on keeping the truck untill 300k miles it would be worth me to spend the 269.00 on the 1million mile filter setup

That's a totally different beast when it comes to performance of the intake.

Ok, that's a different story, I just wanted to make sure that people are aware that yes aftermarket filters flow more, but when they do is it actually usuable by the vehicle, sometimes yes, sometimes no. With the 6.0, everything I've seen is no, but if your looking at it for other reasons and those are valid reasons, then that's different.

I do think though the S&B is an oil cleaned filter, don't over oil it that will cause a stink with the MAF.

tex,

i just got my stroker at the begining of the month, but i checked the filter once just to "check" it and i had 3 of the clips(silver locks) pop off, and wrestled it to the point of asking my buddy that was laughing...(dodge had a better idea on that design) then i found that it was a air box it was a combo of box/filter....i am sure it would be great on the dusty ranch but my plans are on road only.

just for ease and regular replacing after market seems the best buy... now if i gain a "cool" increase of the tubo sound, or some more mustangs under the hood, that would be great too.... specially if it is near the same price
($269.00) thanks arick

S&B are total bunk filters. They hold only 20% of the capacity of dust compared to an OEM filter. You want to make your OEM filter changes easier? Cut off that snorkle, this is my second truck I've modded. Add to this the ZOODAD and you got some serious air flow!!
