Whats wrong with a K&N

I was told that the K&N FIPK Cold Air Intake is can cause turbo issues? What causes this. I know from what I have read on here and in magazines they arn't used too often on diesels is there a reason for that or is it just a preferred product thing going on?

K&N filters let to much damage causing particles by. AFE are probably the most preferred then s&b.

Some people are like slinkies they are completely useless but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a set of stairs

It comes down to filtration being balanced against airflow through the box.

The K&N systems are well known for allowing a considerable amount of dust and junk through the filter, particularly in dusty environments. Also, some reports of K&N's filters coming off the intake have caused turbos to fail. AFE is a good alternative for folks looking to drop an intake into these 6.0's.

With that being said, is there a reason you're looking for an intake at this time?
The stock Donaldson intake on these trucks, filters remarkably well and still has potential for supporting upto around 500HP. If you're not looking to break that plane, the money put toward any intake should be used to either bullet-proof the engine, tuner, or exhaust system.

I didn't know about the stock being able to take up to 500 hp until about a day ago and it was just kind of instinct I am new to diesels and still learning I am deployed right now and already bought the K&N and an Edge Evolution which I heard is garbage also so good news is I haven't installed either of these yet bad is I have to find a way to get rid of them now. What exactly is bulletproofing the engine also?

Read through this post from "PGreenSVT", it will give you some good points on the 6.0L.

Things to consider about owning a 6.0L
