Upgrading intakes?

Hey y'all haven't posted in a while but now that I've allowed my wallet to recover a bit from the holidays I wanted to know if upgrading my intake to a AFE stage II would be worth the money. I've seen it in person and GAWD IS IT BIG!! lol. Right now I got a AirRaid quickfit and it does an ok job but I think it's not as flowing at the AFE. Plus I hear that doing this will let my turbo whistle a little louder and spool up faster. Just wanted to know is it really worth the 450 bucks?

Oh and is the foil delete really that noticeable with the turbo whistle? Seems like a lot of trouble to go through to remove them so I just wanted to know if it's worth it.

I'll definitely let you know if/when I upgrade although I don't know if it's applicable to your 6.0 though.

The tymar is bigger but it does not flow as much air. Proven facts, not just myth....I am letting a group of enginnering students use my truck to flow test the intake and MAP the turbo I am running. I have the AFE and maybe I can throw on a Napa filter while the testing is going on. The Napa filter is way better than stock.

The flow rates are as follows:
Stock - 277cfm
Tymar - 425cmf
AFE stage 2 - 582cfm

on the 7.3 diesel engine there is a intercooler tube that runs from your turbo that is covered in what looks like pop-tart foil. what you do is remove the tube and peel/scrape all of that stuff off, and then if you want to use a soft grinder to get the remaining glue off or just use gu-gone. by doing so, you can really hear your turbo spool up and it sounds really neat, kinda like a jet taking off lol. but make sure you put that tube back on tight
