Intake Question

alright guys i know AFE is the best intake out there but im not fond of the $400 price tag. I was wondering whats the next best intake out there. Im not lookin to spend over $300. The truck is mainly a highway driver however it does see some dust now and then out on the ranch. Filtration is not the biggest concern but is definately a factor. Im lookin for something that flows alot of air and that will really make my turbo whistle. I DO NOT want to do the DIY...
What do yall think??

Why not the DIY intake? It is incredibly easy, and cost me ~$35.

What are the specification (air flow and filtration) differences between AFE and S&B?

I get too nervous and obsessive about sticky/oil air filters. Did I add enough? Too much? Did I cover the entire filter, or did I miss a spot? I don't trust myself.

That's why I liked the DYI Donaldson/Napa 6637 filter. I can just buy a new filter, install, done. I don't mind an annual cost of $25 for the filter.

If I was in a lot of dust/dirt conditions and needed capacity, I go with the AIS.

I think all you might be getting with the S&B and AFE filters are reusable filters and fit and finish.

Unless someone can prove the AFE ProGuard 7 or S&B is better than the DYI, I'd go with DYI.

Another vote for S&B. The flow and filtration numbers are excellent and the unit itself is very well made. For the price, it cant be beat.
