S&B with the plexi-lid removed. Tested and proven on the 6.7L by dozens of people on this forum. I've been running one for 40k miles without issue. Adds a nice growl to the interior and a little more turbo hiss.

Everyone got better mpg regardless but an additional 1mpg or so with the plexi-lid removed.

^^^yup^^^. cant say for sure on the MPG though... I may have actually droped about .5 mpg but that was before I deleted. the extra growl and turbo his was worth it to me though. that and it cleans up the engine bay pretty well.

Are you running the dry or oiled filter with it and why?

I'm running the oiled one. They should perform the same however I've always used oiled filters on all my vehicles from race cars to quads to my Powerstroke. Honestly I personally believe it will catch more dust with the oiled versus the dry, but I can't prove that. I also change air filters about every 30k miles, not clean them but completely replace, again just for piece of mind.

AFE stage 2 with dry filter. Added a lot more turbo whistle and about .5-1 mpg. Also added to my throttle response. I bought it from Rudy's but I didn't shop around.

S&B is a good kit to.

I love my S&B, adds a little flare to the engine bay. I prefer dry filters for ease of use. Something to consider with diesels and oiled filters, it's pretty easy to screw a turbo up if you don't know what your doing. To much oil and it's going to gum up your Turbo. To little and your gonna dust it.

I have an AFE stage 2 waiting for me to install. Didn't really have a preference over S&B, just got a little better price. Dry filter. Agree with HighHP, too much oil can play hell w/a turbo.

Good point with the oiled one. I just ordered the S&B with the dry filter.
