Good cold air intake

I have been thinking about buying a new intake for my truck any recomendations? I have a K&N FIPK and heard a lot of bad things about it and want to get something effective.

Stock is best, unless your building a 500+ HP race motor.

I have heard the same thing. Stick with the stock unit, use the money on something else. A previous owner put a volant air system on mine, I am thinking about going back to stock. Regards.

Since you already have the FIPK kit, S&B makes a replacement to work with the K&N FIPK that will filter better than the K&N.

I bought 2 filters, I don't like waiting around for it to dry while doing the cleaning process. Keeping the aftermarket filter clean with a good seal is the key to prevent from dusting the turbo. I swap mine out every 6 months. The S&B replacement goes for around $55 no matter who you get it from, so you might as well get it from one of our vendor that carry the S&B filters, just give them the part number from the other link.

If you really really want to upgrade get the S&B.

how is the evolution working for you I heard that it is bad for the tranny I don't have the CTS but there shouldn't be too much of a differance? I haven't installed mine yet cause I am deployed right now and I was wanting to get someones input who already runs one.

So for I have been very happy with it. I am new to diesels so am still learning. I am currently running it in economy mode with diesel at $4+/gal. It seems to get a little better mileage than stock. I ran 80+ miles on the interstate last week and got around 17 mpg running 75/80 mph. My temperatures have been running very consistent. I plan on adding additional sensors in the future EGT...Fuel Pressure...and such.
