Which Intake System to Buy?

I am looking at getting an intake system for a 2000 F350. I have found a lot of good info on here but still have a few questions.

It sounds like a lot of people like the AFE Dry Stage 2 kit. I also read that this style kit, that is open to the engine compartment, is already behind other because it is drawing in warm/ hot air.

I have also seen a lot of guys using the AIS system, some with the fender sleeve. It is said this is the best set up because it is always drawing fresh air from the fender and not the engine compt.

And then there is the 6637 DIY set up.

I know there are probably a lot of varying opinions, but is one set up really any better than other? Thanks for any advice you can provide.

Chris

No but i wouldn't say it filters any better than the 6637. Now if you're planning on entering your truck in a desert race or something you should probably go with the ais but for anyone else the 6637 will do a great job.
