Air Intake For A 6.0 Yes or No

I have a 2006 6.0, currently running a turbo back Banks Exhaust and a programer. Will the intake help it run better or is it a waste of money.

Intake isn't really needed. You've already got superior filtration in your truck now... why change it?

If you are on a quest to get the MOST out of your truck, AFE makes a good filter that should be good for 1-2psi of boost.

If its a late 06 then the intake flows pretty good. We sell alot of the filter elements that go into the black plastic housing you already have. The big advantage is you can clean it as often as you like, and you wont be spending 70 bucks each time you need a change. The AFE OE replacement element is very popular, so is the trueflow for the greatest filtration. If you are performance minded then I would go with the AFE.

Is it possible to put an AEM brute force HD filter on a K&N cold air intake?

Save your money and keep your stock intake. It flows and filters all you need until you get into the higher horsepower ranges. Your stock intake is good for at least 450 hp if not a litte more. Now if you start adding bigger sticks and a turbo then I would think about an aftermarket intake but until then I vote for keeping the stocker.
