Air filter

I'm new and sure this has been ask a few hundred times before. I'm looking to add a little performance in the future with a programmer and do items on bullit proof page. For now I need to change my Air filter. Do I use a stock filter and housing or an open peformance system? Thank matt

It depends on what your mods will be down the road... the stock air filter is good up to 500rwhp

First post, Welcome to the ORG.

Definitely read the following thread:
Write Up: Bullet-Proofing the 6.0L PSD.

Two schools of thought here, you're looking to add a little performance. Unless you plan on putting down big numbers (threshold here is 500RWHP) I advise you continue using the stock Donaldson style filter. Its proven to support 500HP, and filters better than anything on the market. I still run the stock filter, and will even when my build is finally complete.

On the other hand, you're already having to replace it and have a little extra in the bank. While their is better mods out there for the money, if you insist on an aftermarket CAI, take a look at the S&B line. That would be about the only thing I'd run on my truck if I took that route.

Cut the fiberglass shield by the radiator. Check the mod section. It costs nothing and your getting cold air almost rammed right into the system. Plus its free and the Donaldson filter in there already can support alot. My MPG's also went up a lil and I got a louder turbo whistle.
