New Tuner?

I'm going to buy a mini maxx w/delete. Do I need a after market air filter or can I use the stock one. Cause when I tuned my 6.0(SCT), every body was saying that the best filter is the stock one. So I'm not sure on what to do, I would realy like to add it later down the road but dont want to starve the truck for air. What's yall's thoughts on this. Thanks

If you run the lower tunes you will be fine. The Race Tunes you will suck the filter minder in. Also if towing heavy you might on the lower tunes.
I dont have one but have been fine, only pull hte filter minder in about 50%, but I run the Innovative Tow Tune 95% of the time. Without the trailer the filter minder doesnt move.

You could also just do a high flow drop in air filter to the factory box. Let us know if we can help.

You can run the stock one, an intake is not absolutely necessary. However, an upgraded intake will help no matter which tune you run. They make a bigger difference in the higher tunes though.

You will have to have atleast a high flow drop in filter if you want to run the H&S on the highest tune. Otherwise it will suck in the filter minder. High flow drop in filter is also about the same price as a Ford replacement filter.

So, if I want to run the hot damm on the minni max to get the best fuel milage, I need a high flow filter. Do those high flow filters filter that good? I've been told more air flow, more dirt!

Yes, at the very least, if you dont want a check engine light. A full intake would be much better though.

To get the best fuel mileage, yes. They filter 99.9%. I would recommend going with the pro guard 7 media for the filter.
