S&B or K&N intake

Any ever dyno'd with both of these? Any one better than the other? Pretty much everything I has K&N but I heard than the S&B is better.

Never dynoed one on a diesel but on an 03 Cobra the S&B was way better . Don't remember exact numbers but we went from the K&N to the S&B and had to completely retune the car . It was getting so much more air with the S&B that it went dead lean . We thought it was a fluke so we put the K&N back on and lost a ton of power and wast really rich .

I'm not sure about with the 7.3 but everything I've read people say stay away for k&n...they say they aren't very good diesel trucks....they don't filter very good, but I could be wrong

Your not wrong...

K&N does NOT go with turboed vehicles... Unless you want to be replacing a turbo

Installing a k&n is a sure shot way to dust your turbo quick

Just ordered the S&B pretty everyone says the same thing. So what makes the S&B better than K&N they look somewhat similar except the S&B has a tube that looks somewhat like ram air.

K&N does not filter as well. They may be applicable for the track, but for the daily driver (even in the best case scenario), they do not filter enough. It took me all of 5k miles to hit the brakes on the K&N and (while still utilizing the kit) switching to the 6637.
