Question Air Intake Answers Needed....

Ok folks, I have done the DPF delete back in the spring and LOOOOOVVVVEEEE IT ! Now I have got to get some more air coming in. The minder keeps getting sucked down with the message of check air filter on the dash.... So now it's up y'all to help me decide: S&B oiled or dry, Banks Ram Air or AFE wet or dry. I currently have a Drop in K&N.

I have the S&B and love it. I think for the money it's the best option. There is a discussion on here about oiled vs dry (do a search). AFE also seems to be a popular choice. I haven't heard a lot of people doing the Banks, and the general consensus on K&N is don't waste your money.

I went with the S&B oiled so I wouldn't have to replace when it gets dirty. You just have to have some time to let it dry. Don't over oil.

I have the Banks on mine. Great system, easy install and has plenty of rounded internal edges to help with air flow.

S&B, dry or standard is up to you. The standard is one that can be cleaned and re-oiled. The dry filter will need to be replaced.

Sounds like a good reason to go aFe if you want a dry filter...

Some people dont want to clean anything, they just want to replace it. In their case, the S&B dry is perfect.
