Need Help - Intake Decision

Trying to narrow my decision down for an Intake; down to AFE Stg 2, just don't know whether to go with the dry filter or the PG 7. Have had the PG 7 in the past on my 6.4 seemed to work great, just don't know. The dry might be beneficial to the point of throwing the old one out and popping another one on, not having to wait for the filter to dry after cleaning it, and then re-oiling it.

What are your thoughts.
Thanks.

I have an S&B with an oiled filter, which I'd highly recommend, and I just have a spare filter on hand that I keep clean. Yeah its a pain in the butt having to clean and oil the filter but I drive a lot of gravel and my intake tube, or inside the filter, has never had a drop of dust. So if you're going to get the AFE, I'd say go for the oiled filter if you drive lots of gravel, but if you're just driving on the streets then I dont see any problem with a dry filter.

X2 for the s&b, I really like mine, better price and way better quality then my airiad on my last truck. I went paper filter, all oem use paper for a reason. A under maintained oiled filter can be detrimental to a turbo. This is the great debate on all forums, you hear stories of oil getting sucked into the engine and gumming up turbos, and oil screwing up sensors in the intake.

I ordered an H&S Cold Air Intake which should be here Monday. It was under $300 dollars and I like the way the box looks. I don't know if it's as good as AFE or S&B, but I think you're splitting hairs when comparing intakes of the same basic design.

X3 for the S&B.

If your set on the AFE i would go with the oiled filter. From what ive seen from running oiled filters on my trucks and dirtbikes is it seems to keep more out. Yes there is more maintenance but im just weird and love when its time to do maintenance like i love doing oil changes and fuel filters and cleaning air filters haha.

S&B all the way i experimented with 2 others just for fun the s&b def had the most throttle response with the cover off. Now for me i didnt get any improvements on mpg with a stock tune truck. But truck still has no tune so i cant give any further results lol

Thanks Guys for all the suggestions. I went and bought an AFE Momentum HD Stg 2 w/ the PG7, I had a AFE Stg 2 w/ PG7 on my 10, and it worked well so I figured I'd go again.
