CEL, Dealer says it's from S&B Intake

I have a 2010 F250 with 3500 miles on it, and it popped a Check Engine Light. I took it in (I knew I should have put the stock intake on before taking it in) and they said it's probably because of the S&B intake, and they wouldn't even try to diagnose it until I put the stock one on. The intake has been on it since it had about 80 miles on it, so how could it just now cause a CEL?

Not sure what the code was. I put the stock one back on, and the CEL went away after a few miles, so I guess it was because of the intake.

Well, not only did the CEL light go away when I took the S&B off and put the stock one back on, but it also seems more responsive at low RPM's. How's that happen? One of my biggest complaints about this truck is how sluggish it is from a stop, but it's better with the stock intake. What a waste of $300.

it was probably the P2002 code, Does the S&B airbox that you have only have the opening for the fender vent because S&B redesigned the box to only have that one opening, since I got the newer design mine has only thrown the code one time.

It has the front opening, too. I had it on the truck for over 3,000 miles before it ever threw the CEL. I'm thinking maybe because the weather was hot last week when it popped? I don't know. I have a car with an aftermarket intake that also throws CEL's, but only at a certain time of year. Don't know if it's the weather, gas differences, or what.

The stock airbox on the 6.4L is one of the best I've seen on a stock truck. That $75 paper filter flows better than you might think, AND has the added benefit of filtering out particles down to 4 microns. Most of the aftermarket "performance" oiled filters are only good down to 10-15 microns, and that's only when properly maintained.

Sell that S&B and keep your stock airbox. Unless you're running a tuner, DPF/cat delete, and bigger exhaust, the intake isn't going to give you anything more than a $300 under-the-hood appearance upgrade.

Cool

I feel you brother! The very first thing I did when I bought my truck was to put a cold air intake on and wouldn't you know it a few months later about six months later I started getting TC and took it in where I was told the same thing. We won't touch it with the aftermarket intake on it. It pissed me off because it made no sense for the code it was throwing "had nothing to do with the intake" I found a slightly cooler dealership over 100 miles away who would work on it...that is until my high boost turbo went bad..then even they said it was the intake which is complete B.S. that caused the turbo to go out. I had to buy a factory intake due to the fact that the shop lost my factory one when they put on the aftermarket intake and to top it off FORD said NO GO on the warranty for the turbo! "I voided my warranty they said when I changed the air cleaner" How is that for chicken****!!
