AFE STAGE 2 INSTALLED

JUST FINISHED UP THE AFE STAGE 2 INTAKE INSTALL. IT SOUNDS GREAT AND IS NOT OVERLY LOAD AT ALL. YOU CANT EVEN TELL THAT IT IS ON THE TRUCK WHEN DRIVING NORMAL UNTIL YOU GET INTO IT. THEN IT DOES WHISTLE A BIT BUT IT IS A NICE SOUND AND NOT AT ALL LOAD OR ANYONING. I AM GLAD I DID THE AFE. IT ALSO DROPED MY EGT'S BY ABOUT 15-20 DEGREES WHEN CRUISING ON THE HIGHWAY. BUT ANYWAYS... THE BOOST NOW MAXED AT 48 PSI

BLACK MAXX 225 TUNE, 4'' TURBO BACK EXHAUST, AFE STAGE 2 INTAKE, DIRTY DIESEL CAC PIPE

Is there really a diference in brands for the air intakes? I am looking into getting one soon and I am having a hard time choosing. I am planning on doing the black maxx and 4 inch down pipe back exhaust in the future.

Yes, there is. We recommend with AFE or S&B. Both are high quality intakes, but they do differ. Dollar for dollar I think the S&B is the best on the market, but AFE is much easier to install and service.

AFE: Easy install, easy filter change, 3 different filter medias to choose from, moderate cost.

S&B: A little more difficult install, harder to change filter, 2 different filter medias to choose from, low cost.

Exclamation

What filter did you choose, oiled or dry? Did you do a prefilter deal?

I am upping my SCT from the canned tunes to one from Innovative here (500rwhp I think is the one) very soon and since there is going to be more power I have to purchase an intake.

That is going to be about it power wise for me as I tow near 10000lbs so ultimate flow is not needed. I believe I understood from the AFE site the oiled filters flow slightly better.
