AFE CAI on a 2008 6.4

I'm getting ready to acquire a slightly used AFE Cold Air Intake. The part number is 54-31262. I can't find any reference to this unit on their web site. I do see the 54-11262 though. Has anyone heard of this part?

Not to highjack your thread Bob, but this is where my buddy bought this one...

I don't really know what type cx means, but I do know its a AFE Pro Dry filter, and it doesn't include the torque booster tube...

Thanks. I'm checking to see if the booster tube is included in the package I'm looking to buy.

So you'll have spent $225 total on a $385 AFE stage II cold air system...

Thanks. I've asked the seller to see if he has the tube as part of the package.

We have them on the shelf ready to ship, the system your looking at is a discontinued number. They no longer sell them without the torque booster. I am not sure the math you use but $295 + $75 = $365 sounds like a loosing proposition.

I'm buying the unit slightly used. I've asked the seller to let me know if the torque tube is part of the package he's selling. He indicated the kit was over $350 new which sounds like it may have the tube.

What CAI do you recommend for a 2008 6.4l, Pro FLow dpf delete pipe and an SCT Tuner running Extreme? I'm not looking for good 1/4 miles runs just a reliable truck with improved fuel economy. Also, should I have removed the cat?

He's not paying $295, he's getting a steal on it...

Used for 3 months...

$150 without the Torque Booster

I would. If you are gonna delete the DPF, why not just go ahead and do the cat too?

I run the AFE on mine, no problems with it, never threw any codes. Satisfied customer.
