6637 gains?

I'm thinking about putting a 6637 filter in and was wondering what kinda gains you guys are getting.

Well I found a k&n intake for like a silverado that I had laying around. I cut the tube down a little and put the filter on and it works ok, not huge gains but did notice the sweet turbo sound. I think it's not getting enough air through the filter cause it's only like 8" long and the biggest part is like 6".

Holy****. Sometimes I feel like I"m in the Twilight Zone.

Take of the k&n; it will dust your turbo and your. Not to mention, there isn't one k&n made that will flow enough for our diesels.

No problem. Before you buy it, cross referance the 6637 at your local napa because sometimes they are cheaper than fleetfilter is.

my first filter was a fram ca8037, thing worked great honestly, and has an 850 cfm rating iirc, which is the same as our turbo's are, i noticed good gains with it as well, but when a buddy game me a free AFE intake and 6637 filter i immediatly used it instead, and works even better.

The WIX equal to the Fram CA8037 has a flow rate of 250 CFM. I'd say its a safe bet that the Fram one does too.

I'd recommend the AFE Big Boost filter if you are doing the DIY air filter or if you are going to run a Tymar kit. The AFE Big Boost is rated at 850 CFM, which are turbos are rated for 750 CFM per Beans.

I agree... I dont think that fram can flow nearly enough for our motors. I've tried researching that filter and couldn't pull up any flow stats.
