Air intake?

Anyone have a S&B cold air intake? Im looking into it because i like the closed box becuse my AFE just keeps getting dirt fast. I was just wondering what u guys thought of it and if it comes with the air box to turbo tube? thanks

Yeah, I kinda agree with ya. It seems like I have to clean mine every other month or so. Do you live in a mostly dusty or hot environment? I was thinking of trying out the Pro Guard for 50 bucks before I ditched my 300 buck system

If you drive is dusty enviorments then any open air elemnet may not be for you. The Ford AIS was made for enviorments like this and NOTHING will filter better, with the Zoodad mod mine flows all the air my truck needs.

Where's the best place to get this Ford AIS?

02 F350 CC 7.3 PS, auto, 6x6, 4.10 gears LB. AFE stage 2 intake, 4" AFE SS exh, 6.0 atf cooler, DP tuner with five stages Eng Temp gauge, EGT guage and Trans temp gauge. J.Woods valve body ATS turbo housing. Cooling sys filter & waterless coolant. NON WORKING POS FASS fuel filter sys. Brightbox headlites. I don't care what they say "There's no replacement for displacement." Don't believe statements about anything being better than a 7.3
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

I run a K&N without any problem. I clean it every couple of months regardless of outside elements. It just seems to help with air flow and MPG.
