Best intake???

So i found this guy that is going to sell me a k&n intake pretty cheap? is it any good or should i get a different better brand cause i can get this one brand new but used not from a shop for 140. My truck is stock but im putting a 4 inch turbo back mbrp exhaust on it and later on a chip probably a sct. My truck is a 2003 f250 6.0 diesel crew srw. I ultimately want to maximize fuel economy and just make it run the best possible and always get more power from it. So please let me know. I appreciate all the help1

actually -- save your $$$ and buy something else for the truck... your intake is good for a lot of HP.

if you just have to change it -- get a proguard 7 filter for the OEM intake. Also, do the Zoodad

The 6.0 intake is one of the better intakes out there and it comes on your truck stock!

I'd probably just change the filter and forget the K&N intake

Will save you $$$, you'll get better flow and better filtration. Then get to spend some of that saved cash on something else

hehehe, no problem --

I'd say call Pat or Larry at Discount Power Parts I think it is (DPP) or Raul at Stealth Automotive -- I'm sure either one of them will hook you up.... heck, you could even call Gus at Farm Boy's Diesel

and here is the Zoodad ... zoodad mod



and I love my exhaust! I put it in myself with a little cutting (comes long enough for a Crew Cab Long bed) and it sounds great and looks good! Notice a little more tone at highway speeds, but very quiet otherwise, unless you are standing beside the truck when its revved up

Because I have a 7.3 -- its intake design is different and VERY restrictive and was helped by a new intake -- heck, I only got a used Stage 1 (couldn't afford the Stage 2) and could tell a difference!


but on the 6.0, you're intake is designed to be almost as efficiant as it can be from the factory (until you get up in the 500 ish HP range, then it just won't flow enough air I'd suspect) -- so basically you can make it better by adding a better flowing filter -- but then I would just leave it like it is
