best drop in air filter for stock intake

so i just got my 08 superduty and wanted to upgrade the air intake system but the ford dealer told me it would affect my certified preowned vehicle warranty so i guess i will just go with a drop in filter anybody got any ideas on which one is the best

I did a drop in filter in my 2009. I ordered mine from Xtreme Diesel in New Jersey. It's made by AFE. Sorry I don't rember what I paid for it, but it went right in. Just make sure if you go this route you make sure the filter is seated all the way into the opening, it's a tight perfect fit. I feel a slight difference in throttle response, but nothing to bark at. This is just temporary till I do a complete tuner/intake/DPF delete. I do have a MP-8 from TS Performance (also from Xtreme Diesel) on my truck. Fuel milage is about 1 to 1.5mpg better. I can definitly feel difference. The biggest benifit I get out of this combo... the Regens on the exhaust. If I baby the truck, like old man style (letting the trans shift by 2000 rpms) I can do about 535-550 miles between Regens on the DPF. I drive 52 miles a day round trip, no highway. But the whole Regen thing is not rocket science...the harder you drive it...the more it regens. But before I had this set up I could never see over 300-350 between Regens. If I beat on my truck or tow heavy I can Regen every 50-100 miles easily. Hope this helps. Any questions just PM me. FYI, I personally switch out all my stuff before the truck goes to the dealer ()...just to be certain they dont say jack to me for doing something to the truck

i have been doin oil changes at home, but the head disel tech seems like a good guy ill pm you what he told me. i dont think a drop in would be a problem. as far as the tune goes i love not having the ''cleaning exhaust filter'' message pop up. and the pickup just runs better, so ya im loving it.

I have the AFE Drop-In purchased from Performance Truck Products, it was like 78 or something. Has worked great even tuned, towing, etc. I think the full intake are a little over kill unless you are running a huge HP tune all the time with your foot in it.

This is what I have had for about 20k miles. Works great for me. Just recently had the intake off a few days ago with no sign of any dust getting by. I'm in a very dusty area and live on a dirt rd.
