cold air intake

Hello to everyone, just picked up my 2011 F250 powerstroke, I'm wondering how many miles it should have before switching to a cold air intake? Thanks

Welcome to the site!

Theres no set time when its best to change out the intake. Some people do it right away, others wait a few thousand miles. Its totally up to you.

Welcome to the org!

Just like they have said, it's really up to you. I waited until 27k to finally tune mine. I would wait a little while, but that's just me. Doesn't really matter.

Not sure there is a "Best" intake...you'll find some opinions on a couple. There were a few guys throwing codes with the AFE....but it looks like a very high quality piece. I went with the S&B and couldn't be happier....plus I saved a few bucks over the AFE. I think generally they function the same...so take your pick.

Good Luck,

Wayne

Seems like most folks are running S&B or AFE 'round here. I'm personally going with AFE when I do it, I got the drop in filter now and I really like it.

The s and b intake sounds pretty good. Makes the 6.7 sound like a diesel! And I took off the plastic cover from my s and b for more air flow and it sounds even better. Plus I noticed better throttle response and better fuel mileage with the s and b over the stock air intake
