DIY intake vs Aftermarket intake.

I had a diesel mechanic tell me today that just putting a filter like the 6637 will in some cases cause less mileage and make no difference. He said yes u can here the turbo more and it sounds cool, but that it. Supposedly these aftermarket intakes have a science too them. He said even for kicks they put a filter directly on the turbo and the turbo actually overspooled. I just spent 80 bucks on an AFE big boost filter for my 97 7.3 and now i feel like i pissed it all away. Any thoughts??

I agree. It's a difference you can hear AND feel. You really can't feed a diesel too much air.

I would never go to that mecanic after hearing that. Diesels are a big air pump and they do better the more air they can pump
