I can't deside on a intake.. To many opinions out there..

From what I read online, the Ford AIS Life Filter Kit is the best route to go, but there's so many opinions out there... I want to spend under $250... What do you guys think? Im just going to add a 4" turbo back exhaust and a tuner and call it good... thanks guys...

I had an Airaid on my Duramax and it was great, but I bought the AIS for my powerstroke and love it. I was able to pick up a little MPG with the AIS and the Zoodad mod. I like that I am getting the best filtration I can! Also Sunrise Ford in Fontana Ca sold me mine for $198...can't beat it!

Being on a budget as you are, do the 6637 wix filter mod. If your handy, you could scrounge up the materials yourself pretty inexpensive.

you can do the 6637 setup for like 50 bucks if you want to save money like hucorey said.

but the AIS is very nice and filters great as well.

Dealer? Whatever you do don't go the dealer!

The part# is FA1759 or maybe FA-1759 or even 2U2Z-9K635-AA

I've seen them on the net for like $189 last time I looked (it might have been eBay, but not there now).

To me, the difference with it and the 6637 is how it looks. When I see the 6637 I just can't help thinking of the "kid up the street" with his Honda Civic and its 6" resonator/tailpipe, looks Mickey Mouse (sorry fellas...)

The AIS Looks Right, lasts as long (if not longer) flows as well (if not better) as the 6637. If its appearance is important to you (and I have to admit I guess it is to me...) the AIS is worth the difference over the life of the truck.

Can someone with the AIS post a photo. My engine builder gave me my cone style filter. Free is good, so I said sure. Problem is I love to go offroading... I want better and cleaner air, not more air. Thinking of going AIS... now that I know it exists.

The AIS looks, pretty much, like the stock airbox. It's just made to flow a Tremendous amount of air and made by FORD for "Severe Service" in dusty conditions. It outflows almost everything else, and does it safely (unlike those gauze/oil things, like the K&N that let WAY TOO much dirt in)

Here's mine, but not installed, with the "ZooDad Mod" (screened hole for the snorkel) and the "Fender Sleeve" (draws cool air from under the fenderwell). Between this and the 4" exhaust the engine can really breath
