Mini Maxx and exhaust need CAI

Did the Mini and 4" MBRP. Now check air filter is coming up on my display. I do have a CAI (better flowing intake as i like to call them) that will be here tomorrow. Im guessing the stock intake setup just can't keep up with the demands the Mini Maxx is putting on it. Just wanted to see if my thoughts were correct.

Yes the stock filter just doesn't flow enough air. If you keep your foot out of it the stock on is just fine. But at even half throttle on higher tunes in these trucks they flow tons of air. That's why the with just a tune these trucks outrun any other diesel on the market (with only a comparable intake/exhaust/tuner... Gotta compare apples to apples people). Literally of you look at the HP/TQ/weight ratios of these trucks, the 6.0 and the LMM Duramax's are similar, and the new 6.7 cummins, 6.7 powerstroke and LML Duramax are similar, but the 6.4 is in a class of its own.

Correct, the stock intake cant keep up once the truck is tuned.

I've been running the AFE drop in filter in the stock box with out the lid on, and it will still start to pull in the filter minder after multiple runs. I have not had it set off the messege/code yet, but I have reset it a couple times under the hood because it was over halfway pulled in.

Well I gave it a day of back and forth running around before I made my comments. All is well. No more message and I have not had to reset the filter minder. I would love to hear the turbo more though. Jealous of the 6.0 guys
