TS Chip, AFE intake

About to go ahead and order these, but wondering if anyone has any insight as to if I shouldnt. I havent heard of many problems with the TS chips other then I probably wont see the full gains with a stock fuel system, and that most people prefer the custom tunes but I could always have them reburnt down the road if need be. And I havent really seen any feedback on the intake.

Id go with a diy 6637 filter or a tymar intake which also uses the 6637. i think the tymar is only 100 bucks. And from what ive read the 6637 filter flows more air.

The tymar and 6637 are literally identical, save for what you decide to use on the elbow portion, and as far as the afe filter it's what I have, best mod I have other than the intercooler, custom tunes, Dana 60 swap, and full sd interior, but either way the afe is the only one I know of with the metal heat shield, but since I'm intercooled not sure if it really matters since the air gets cooled down again anyway

The problem with heat shields and routing air through intake boxes is that whenever you direct air flow, you increase restriction. Low restriction is the goal, so using a filter that has the ability to flow large masses of air and then enclosing it in a box yields very poor results. Heat shields do literally nothing. Air flow under the hood is dynamic and not static. It is moving all the time. Hot air will move right around a heat shield at the same temperature and be ingested and the only thing you have caused is turbulence.


If you want a filter that outflows and out cleans all others..get a Tymar.

We have them in stock.

Mine spools earlier, keeps hot motor air away from filter and looks way better and has warranty and had great customer service. Me personally would buy afe over the tymar or 6637 diy any day. Now to keep cost down id try to find a good used one but i like my afe

So you have had a Tymar kit and have tested...back to back controlled conditions?

Hot air ...been shown for 10years to be a non issue...
