After reading about 100 reviews specifically related to the 6.4L, think I am leaning towards a Banks Ram Air system

Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System #42185

and stay away from the "throwing codes" scenario...

Just a heads up, Banks uses a K&N filter with their intake. Not the greatest quality. If your worried about codes on a stock truck, then go with S&B. If your planning on tuning, go with AFE.

Just curious, what causes the trouble codes running stock with an AFE filter? Too MUCH flow? Can one expect the trouble codes after tuning or does the tunes expect the extra flow?

You will not get a trouble code with a DPF delete tuner. I think it has something to do with the DPF pressure sensor. It is very sensitive to pressure changes I guess. S&B's seem to be the most proven on stock trucks, and they stand behind their product. If you get a CEL with their intake, they will send you something new to try.

Thanks guys, all good knowledge!

Jeff, you guys seem to know your stuff when it comes to the 6.4L powerstroke. The deal you have on your website ($1999) until 9/30 comes with a S&B filter. How come not go with the AFE? Sounds like AFE is the way to go for tunes. Can a AFE be substituted? I know this is somewhat off topic but plan on purchasing something in the next month or so...

One last question Jeff. With the $1999 package, it is a DPF & CAT delete. It is 2 pipes isn't it? One could just do the DPF delete, right? Rational is we have a POS state trooper in our area that is such as A$$ wipe he would crawl up under a vehicle to see if it had a CAT on it (wish he would move northwest where he would fit in, mostly that is).

Thanks
Sig

What's the difference in the AFE Stage 2 intake and the AFE Si Intake?
shapiros: they also have a different sale that includes the tunes you listed, AFE Stage 2 intake, and a full downpipe back exhaust system for $1999.
