If anyone is thinking S&B...... DO IT !!!!

So last week I ordered a CCV kit and S&B from Maryland Diesel and I got around to installing the intake today and all I have to say is wow the fit and finish is fantastic everything came together really well it took just over 30 mins to install from opening to closing the hood and they even supply a torx to remove the factory MAF screws . Being the cheapest intake on the market I am very impressed !!

If you remove the lid you will like it even better.

If you take the cover off wouldn't it suck hot air from the motor instead of cold air from under the headlight?

I ended up taking the " more air " plug out of the lower housing of the intake box and it does spool up better and since a tow a lot it is very much appreciated.

Its really not that hot anyways around there I took the plug out after driving about 60 miles and even the radiator hoses close to the intake don't seem like they put off a lot of heat and I in no way "baby" my truck so I don't think heat is that big of an issue , id be more concerned the the open box cause MAF turbulence like some of the NA mustangs and NA LS based Chevy engines get when running an open box which in turn cost you horsepower and fuel mileage even though your flowing more air. But that's just a thought I cant prove that at all obviously

Give it a try. I picked up throttle response and mpg. Sounds better too.

I used to freak out if it would rain hard and put it on. After a lot of testing I realized that even with the cover off in a hard rain water still doesn't get in the intake.

I have the volant on mine its just got a little clear cover. I wish I would have bought the S&B though cause I got to take the whole box out to change the filter.

None what so ever MPG maybe .5-1 on the freeway but you do get better off the line turbo spool up my truck sounds like an old 7.3 off the line now haha the added low end is nice to get the 10k that's usually on my bumper going mid and top end RPM pull is improved as well, for 250 bucks you cant go wrong in my opinion.
