Intake Decision (Help Wanted...)

I am trying to decide on what intake to add to my '97 PSD to accompany my Exhaust and soon-to-be added Chip.

I am deciding between the common (3):

Tymar ($150)
S&B ($250)
AFE ($333)

From past experience I know its generally good to isolate the filter from engine heat, but everyone seems to love the Tymar intakes on their diesels.

Is it worth the additional money to get an intake with the heatshield (S&B or AFE) over that of the Tymar?

Thanks again!

Truckless for now.

No difference between having the heatshield and not? No effect on intake temps (the shield acting as a crude IC)?

S&B because its sealed off? Any other reason to choose the S&B over the Tymar?

its a reusable filter... a well oiled filter will filter better than a dry filter..

and its an enclosed unit...
