I am sure it is worth it. Your truck will be able to breath better, which typically will help out a LITTLE with fuel economy. S&B stands behind their product and will send you something new if it throws a code.

To my knowledge S&B intakes never threw codes? I know the AFE intakes would throw code here and there but not S&B, but correct me if Im wrong. As far as if its worth it, idk its up to you. The stock air box is pretty good for what it is. If your not going to tune the truck then I would say just stick with the stock air box to insure that you never have to fight the warranty police if you have issues.

ANY aftermarket air filter or filter-back exhaust has the potential to turn the check engine lamp on, or affect regeneration frequency, as they will cause air to flow differently across the MAF sensor, or lower exhaust pressure in the aftertreatment system.

Since MAF is one of the largest factors in regeneration frequency calculation, the air in has to be close to equal to the air out (as measured by the DPF pressure sensor). So if the turbulence of the air in the intake tract changes, and the engine takes in "more" air, or THINKS it's taking in more air, than it is putting back out, it will often regenerate more frequently, or turn the CEL on to warn the driver of an impending problem with the aftertreatment system.

I purchased an S&B a few months ago. The light has come and gone 3 times. I have not been too worried about it since I knew the cause and finally have a tuner on order.

Im guessing ccsracer13 that you have had the message because of still having your dpf and regen cycle?

Yes, that is correct. I am bone stock, except for the S&B. I have been saving up for the tuner and DPF Delete and only recently ordered it.

No CEL here. But then again, it is tuned and deleted. S&B makes a good product.

I ran an S&B for about 1500 miles on a stock truck. It did make a small difference in mileage. It jumped from and average of 13.9 to about 15 for mixed city and highway.

I ran the S&B on my 08 stock when I first bought it and had ZERO issues, probably put 10k miles on it until the DPF delete stuff went into testing.
