The reason is the stock airbox and filter are so well designed you dont need to change it until you hit the 500-550 rwhp mark. Flow and filtration are excellent.

If the one in my 06 wasnt swapped when I bought it I would have never changed it out.

The reason some change it is ease of changing filters in an open element

I still have my stock box with a droop in filter. The only reason I may change to an aftermarket intake is I have heard the sound of the turbo is louder with an aftermarket, and for me, that'd be cool

You know, other then a couple of users on here, I rarely "hear" that being the reason why they change out the intake. Most are under the impression that it flows better then stock when it can be used best by the truck. Ease of changing or being able to re-use the filter after cleaning is more of an afterthought then anything else.

To the OP: I'm still using the stock filter, although my rpm range is high enough now that I could actually benefit from when the a/m filters flow better then stock, I just don't like those filters enough to change mine out.

108K here and I have ran the OEM stuff since new. I agree with the previous posts on the reasons that people go to the A/M stuff.

For me it's simple, nothing flows better in the long run than the OEM filter.
