Intake vs DIY

So Im looking to getting a new intake in my early 99 F350.. Should I spend the money on the AFE 2 or just make my own? I am thinking the AFE would be better because it has the box to keep the hot air out

Both are fine intakes. You have to decide on how much you want to spend $50.00 or a LOT more.

I will show you an intake on i hight HP truck notice the boost tubes are reinforced.




You decide.

Well all I got now is a 4" straight pipe and Im bored as hell so I might go rig one up. Go buy a spectre filter at O Riellys and some other stuff and whip one up quick. If I ever want to upgrade after I can always buy a new intake kit

All the trucks I have seen in person that have stage 3 injectors, big turbos, big oil, you get the idea... the higher hp trucks all have the diy intake. Its alot cheaper and I reccommend the napa 6637 filter.

All you need is a Napa 6637 filter and a 4"OD piece of pipe about 5"s long.

I would recommend the D.I.Y. with the 6637. I went from stock, to an AFE stage 1, to the 6637.

Alright I did the diy today. Napa was closed so I just bought the spectre filter at oriellys. It sounds a little better and me and my brother drove around but he was driving so I really didnt test out the power gain yet. My question is now should I have it tied down? Also the spectre is a little smaller and its sitting about 6 inches away from the intake in the fender. Should I recut another piece of pipe and make it closer? I also thought about using the bottom half of the stock box to let it sit in and draw air from the fender
