Spartan 275 tripping air filter gauge

Like the title says i just tuned my truck to spartans 275 tune and i love it, except it keeps tripping my air filter gauge.

My question is, do i just drop in a new stock air filter and the problem will be solved?
Or do i go with an aftermarket drop in, and if so which one?

Just got this 6.4 after my other one was crushed by a large tree, so i'm assuming this is the factory stock air filter. 46k miles

I have seen people have good results with a drop in afe or etc. Stock definitely isn't going to flow enough. I would go ahead and buy an aftermarket cold air such as afe which I am very pleased with or others like the S&B or No Limit

You're going to need a drop-in aftermarket at the very least.

My stock one trips the filter if I get on it but I very rarely do that. I plan to get an aftermarket intake next summer.

My 09 has never tripped the air filter gauge on 275. I have stomped on it but no warning just smoke.. On trips I use 275 in town I back down to 210. No upgraded exhaust pipes. Just 4" afe pipe in place of dpf.

There is no reason that the 275 shouldn't pull the stock filter minder in on a stock intake setup

I have a aFe Progaurd 7 drop in after collapsing my air filter on my Spartan 250 tune. Now the air filter gauges doesn't even more a bit. Truck feels so much better and not as "jerky" feel when driving it. My stock filter was so bad i could see it collapsed by looking at the fins.

I got my aFe from TurboKits.com for a good deal too. Give a call there as they dont have it listed on their site but they can get just about anything performance related.

Get an afe or s and b cold air intake for your truck. You'll see a drop in egts and a slight mpg gain.

So i would just be better off getting the full system versus just the drop in.

I dont really want another filter that you have to oil, been there done that, is there anything wrong with a dry filter? Its a farm truck so it sees plenty of dirt roads and off road.
