Which Air Intake System is better...???

Hey everyone, I'm in a dilemma. I'm contemplating on getting either the Banks Ram Air intake or the Volant Air Kit for my 1999 7.3L?
Does anyone have any of these installed on your truck? Thanks!

Why one of those? Why not a DIY style intake, or a Ford AIS?

Nope. None of us have either of these installed. The reason is that we all run the 6637 napa filter and use the money we saved to buy gauges or a chip or fuel or beer.

Spending $300 odd dollars on an "intake" for a 7.3 is a farce.

@jesilvas.
I posted this thread on The Diesel Stop also and another guy said to get the AIS. I looked that kit up and www.dieselpowerproducts.com sells it for the creation of the cost. And I was impressed with the literature I read about it. Thanks for the info.

My friend works at a repair shop and he gets me the filters for $30

For me the best part is throwing away the filter and putting on a new one instead of cleaning the darn thing and waiting for it to dry.
That and the cost of course

I ran the 6637, for about a year, it works but i wanted my engine compartment to look cleaner and the Banks Ram Air is a lot cleaner looking and a great fit. The turbo is not as loud either but that is my opinion.
