Talking Another intake thread

Hey guys I'm new to the diesel world and I've been reading about the different intakes and everyones opinions. But here is my question.

Which is the better bang for my buck, the DIY intake or the Tymar?

Thanks for the advice.

Just take off the factory box and run an open pipe! Sorry... If you've narrowed it down to those two, it's really quite simple then. DIY is the cheapest, but has no warranty. TYMAR is more expensive, but you're buying a quality product--one that's been tested.

IMO, the choice is obvious. Go with the TYMAR.

i got a tymar and i'm satisfied with it and could tell a little, and i do mean little increase in fuel mileage. In my opinion i'd rather buy it from mr. tymar and know its right then spend a little money and do it myself and not be getting the full potential. but if you want to try it go ahead and try, nothing lost at trying.

We are a dealer for Tymar.

A DIY 6637, which is neither a Tymar nor a recommended system by us. The WIX/NAPA 6637 is not a hydrophobic (water resistant) element and using it as an open element should be avoided. There are other concerns such as providing minimal radial clearance, isolating engine vibration, positioning away from rain drip channel, etc. But, I just wanted to draw a clear difference between copies, DIY efforts, andthe Tymar product. By the time you gather up all the correct parts and factor your time..just get the genuine Tymar not as much as you would think.
