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

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.

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

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.

Well I found one for $100 I'll be getting it Tuesday. Ordered the ts chip today. Hopefully it'll help with fuel mileage
