The best intake on the market as far as flow is going to be the AFE Stage II Si

If you don't want your filter minder to be sucked in on a big tune, then I would avoid the S&B. The AFE Stage II PG-7 does well on my truck with the 310 and 350 tunes, but I hear the S&B isn't good beyond the 250 and 275 tunes. Neither are good if you have big plans for the truck, like turbo's. You would need the AFE Stage II Si if you go that far with your truck.

What is wrong (in the grand scheme of things) with just changing out the filter in the stock box? Just asking.


I know some time ago when I was driving a dmax, a huge study was done and it was determined that the stock air box with the stock filter flowed better, protected better, and overall was easier to maintain than anything aftermarket.

Im running the S&B and have yet to see the filter minder move at all on the 310. Let you know on the 350 after I get a trans.

08 F250 CC SB - too much to list

We ran the S&B on the drag truck with custom tunes with no problem. When we upgraded the turbos it was a different story. The S&B will not keep up with upgraded turbos, but if you are on stock turbos it works fine.
