Air Intake Conversions

Just got a 250 want to get stock air intake out and put in aftermarket. Any recommendations on what works well in these 250 diesels? K&N is all I ever heard of are other better?

Don't do a k&n. I would suggest either an s&b or an afe. That's what most guys are running.

I have used K&Ns for years on my gas motors, but on diesels the general consensus is that they are not up to par. The most popular are AFE or S&B. I have also heard the No Limits is awesome, but rather overkill for a stock turbo'd truck.

Thanks very much for the advice. 3 strikes and their out. K&n is the only name I've ever heard. Little research last night what do you guys think about Banks Ram Air

Air Intake Conversions

I haven't heard anything bad about them. A few positive reviews. My 2 cents tho. If you aren't saving a substantial amount, spend the extra and get an S&B (cheaper between the S&B and the AFE) and get something that is very well proven and widely accepted.

K&N fail under the suction of a forced ari induction system. i agree with the previous poats stick with the AFE and S&B those tend to be the most dependable brands with substantial gains

AFE stage II with Pro 5R filter, S&B, or No Limit Fabrications.
