DIY air filter

I'm going to be doing a DIY air intake here soon and I was wondering what would be the best filter I could use?

This is my first diesel. I know on gassers it helps but I didn't know if it was significant enough increase for the investment.

Oh yes, its seat of the pants feel. This is usually the first mod people do on a diesel, they like air and the factory never gives em enough

I bought my truck in September and added a TYMAR intake which uses a Donaldson filter. I would highly recommend the kit. It will run much better and it really does make a difference in the way the vehicle drives. I would recommend after that installing a Diamond Eye 4 or 5 inch turbo back exhaust after you do the filter. Those are the only two aftermarket addons that I have put on my OBS and it drives like a different truck. I got both my add ons from Cary at CT Performance. I would recommend working with him he is very helpful and can answer a lot of questions.
