another quick ? the "CFM" spyder

Has anyone tried the CFM spyder\2piece intake system ? in the new diesel power mag they did a swap on a 7.3 psd ,they said they liked it better than stock cause it was a 2 piece system & it lowered EGT's and lowered air temp coming back to turbo? I would put more value in what you all think over that mag ! so please let me know whatcha think or if anyone has it ,how did it do ? thanx GOD Bless

I have NO experience with the 7.3 CFM product, but I have had two friends run the CFM Intake Elbow for their 6.0s and both have hated it.

One blew apart right at the bend.

The other had all the "carbon fiber" flake and peel off in less than 6 months. Tried to get a re-fund or atleast a replacement with no luck from the manufacturer.

Maybe they just got bad ones, because I read plenty of threads where people are happy with the CFM stuff, so who knows. I just thought I would provide the little insight that I have on the CFM products, even though they are 6.0 pieces.

I'm not sure on the 7.3 stuff as I drive a 6.0 so my knowledge is pretty limited there. But both of my friends with the Banks Elbows to replace the CFM ones.

No matter what people say, Banks does make nice hard parts, just their tuning isn't that great.

But I'm sure Raul can point you in the direction of other manufacturers selling spyders for the 7.3. Good luck with your decision!

It's a gimick. The air doesn't hang around in there long enough to absorb any heat. The heat comes from the turbo compressing it, NOT for heat soak out of the pipeing.
