Ford severe duty I intake?

I found a severe duty intake online local for sale, is this a good upgrade over stock? Or the Napa filter is best? I'm not a fan of an open airbox

its a great setup. on a stock truck it filters the best and it flows plenty of air.

It is a upgrade and flows good air. The best and most important thing is like what has been said it filters the best. It flows enough air for stock and lite moded Trucks.

so it would be good for a truck with a ts chip and straight piped? Im looking for better fuel mileage. Or should i just go with the napa 6637 filter?

If you dont like open filters then the IAS is the one or you.

PIS 230/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Dual SD fuel pumps, in tank mods, CNC Fab bowl retain kit. SDK Tunes. Isspro.
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

The AIS breathes as well, or maybe even better that the 6637 (depends on who's numbers you find...). In Either case, there's certainly little difference. To ME, the best reason to use the AIS is first, it's "looks" It just looks like it belongs there and the way the 6637 makes the under hood look just hits me wrong...

Second is Longevity, the AIS will out perform the 6637 over the life of the filter. That being said, it Does cost a Lot more (you should be able to find the AIS for under $200 though)

I guess it comes down to Taste and Budget They're Both a VAST Improvement over stock.

Anybody have a part number for the replacement air filter for the severe duty intake? I would like to run a K&N or equivalent
