The one your like the best.... decide if you want sealed or not then go from there. Most people do AFE or S&B, I really don't think it matters what you pick, just keep the air filter clean.

I love my AFE... There has been positive said about both. I can only speak to the AFE. Fit was perfect and its very solid. The filter is large and also comes with a water sock which I keep on. The sound result is a nice diesel grumble (nothing obnoxious) and some beautiful turbo whistle starting around 5psi or so. I saw NO significant increase in mileage and may have even lost .5 mpg or so, but I got mine right as I was starting to drive it a little harder after a small break-in period. Just my $.02... Good luck!

I installed an Airaid. It is not sealed. I am very happy.

I had an S&B on my 6.4 and repeatedly had issues with the gauze moving. When this happens it creates areas that on unfiltered. For my 6.7 I bought a Volant. It seems to be put together way better.

Really nothing in either direction at all. I will say that after I pulled the factory intake out I wish i would have just bought a drop in filter. For OEM it is a well designed intake.

I agree that the factory design is nice. The factory air filter is very restricted. I feel there would be a gain by just replacing the filter, but I think there is more to gain with a aftermarket kit. An aftermarket kit will breathe better due to less restrictions. Just my 2 cents.
