intake choice with the minimaxx

well i hate to beat this issue to death, but ive pretty much decided to pull the trigger on the minimaxx, only thing holding me back is deciding which intake to go with. Should i go with the S&B or the AFE? Is the AFE worth the extra money, are there really any differences in flow at all?

Next question is on filter type, as i dont really have any experience running oiled filters. I live in dusty West Texas and use my truck on our farm a lot, so I dont know if an oiled filter is the way to go, as im afraid it would just get nasty. Should I just run a dry filter? Do oiled filters really breathe that much better, or are drys just as efficient?

Thanks guys, im looking forward to getting this setup put on

I think you will be just fine with a dry filter. You can always add a pre-filter to help out as well. If you are worried about filtration, go with the AFE PG7 or S&B standard. As far as the choice between S&B and AFE, that is a tough one. Both are nice kits so you cant make a bad choice, but there are some differences. The AFE is easier to install and service the filter, but you will pay more for it. The S&B has the best pricing, but is a little bit more difficult to install and service. Hope this helps.

Both AFE and S&B are great intake choices for the 6.4. We sell a lot more S&B Intakes mostly because of the price. I would either go with the standard S&B Intake, or the Pro Guard 7 AFE Intake.

It is very easy to change the AFE's filter. That's wy I went with it. The harder it is to change/clean the less likely I am to do it.
