S&B Letting in dust (Now with pics)

Hey all,

I drive some moderately dusty conditions for about 10% of my driving, I have found on my last 2 filter changes that my S&B intake is letting in very small amounts of dust. IMHO any dust is too much dust.

Anyone else have this issue?

I saw more of it around the MAF sensor so I added some gasket sealer this time, but will check again very soon.

Looks like a Donaldson/Volant 61514 will fit in this intake and they claim 99.97% dust filtration which is higher than S&B do you think that would help?

If I cant find a solution to this very fast I will go back to stock intake.

Thanks.

Is that plug in the filter housing in or out? If it's out replace it and see what happens.

Its out now, mostly because it never came with one. I hear the newer intakes never did.


Maybe I'll tape it up or something.

Yes sir, checked almost daily since I saw dust, the dust is most apparent around the MAF when I open it up.

Since last dust was present I have sealed around MAF and changed from oiled to dry filter.

Thanks haha, we get a couple months without snow too!

I'll likely switch to a Volant powercore filter if I see anymore dust.

I'm on gravel and dirt roads 40% of my driving and have never found dust in my intake tubes so far. I run the oiled filter, clean it every 2 months. And replace filter every 12-18 months

That's the same kind if story I read before I bought one.

That's why I bought one!

Do you run with the plug in it or out?

This is why I'm suspecting a crappy seal around the MAF which has been sealed now with gasket maker.

This pic shows how dirty is was at last filter change (stuff I missed when I wiped it out this am) ... the next is from 20km of dirt road following a truck for about 5km of that 20.



I cleaned it, drove it that 20km and checked it. Waiting to hear back from S&B to see what they think.
