Intake Question

I have a 2010 F-250 and was looking at the S&B system and then the AFE stage 2 PROG7 system. What I am wondering is which flows better and is there any pros to have the fully closed system that S&B has. Any replies would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Really the main thing with the S&B is it is difficult to clean. You have to basically take everything back apart to get to fliter. The AFE on the other hand, you just take the cap off the filter box and removed the filter to clean it. They both flow well enough for anyones needs. Just a matter of dealing with the PIA cleaning process of the S&B.

I would be interested in that too if you would be so kind. I bought the Volant and hate it. You can't clean the (100,000 mile) filter and it causes the vacume sensor thingy on the housing to get sucked in and have to reset. Was looking at the AFE, looks like a tight, flowing design.
