AFE or S&B Intake?

I'm modding my 2005 F-350 diesel with 117,000 miles.

So far I'm putting on:

Edge Insight CTS gauges (w/ EGT cable), SCT SF3 tuner, 5 inch turbo back exhaust no muffler, and an EGR delete.

To fill it out I want to get either a AFE or S&B intake.

So far the intake I like is... AFE Stage 2 w/ Pro Guard 7 link below, what do ya'll think!?

AFE Stage 2 Cold Air Intake System with Pro-GUARD 7 Type Si 75-80392

If you add that intake to cart on Xtreme diesel it's only $366!

I am sure I am not going to be the only one to say this. Unless you are going for high HP, you are better off saving your money for other go-fast goodies. That is just the opinion of an old lady that drives an old, slow 6.0L. LOL Granted I went with an aftermarket, but I was pushing a few ponies but I ran a stock air intake for a long time. LIke I said, I would save my money for other mods.

Yeah what granny said! :p

Use that money and get a coolant filter and some updated parts like the upgraded fuel pressure spring and turbo lines

FWIW, i have an AFE Pro Gaurd 7 filter, and it is a good filter. One of the best options if you ask me... I also fall into the category of making a few ponies.

For a long time I was a firm believer in the whole stock intake is best up to 500 hp, but a couple of out members did a dyno test of a CAI vs. OEm on a mostly stock truck and found that the CAI was about 20hp stronger, so now I am not so sure. The thread is here:

Air Intake

I guess my point is that if you want to spend money on an intake, it may or may not help you out, but with that one, you won't do any damage. It's your truck, so it's your decision

Go for it. i installed a Airaid intake and loved the more responsive feel. Main reason i did it was due to cost of a replacement stock filter.

Id go with S&B because it has one more layer of filtering and most important, made in usa. AFE is made in China..atleast the last time I looked.

imo, the "damange" an aftermarket intake is gonna do to the turbo isn't worth the time it takes to post and tell you about it. If you want one, get one. At less than 300 bux(s&b, airaid) it's just another mod to do. When I used airaid then afe stage 2 like you're asking about I don't remember any throttle response, but the turbo was definitely louder say on the freeway next to the cement wall then get on it you could hear more of the turbo sucking air it seemed like, if that makes sense. Only running stock now because I had an extra brand new donaldson and I needed the money for the intake at the time.

Yea 300 is a bit much for 20 hp. I like my afe but if I woulda had to pay for it I migbt not had gotten it. I would not say that all aftermarket filter systems do "damage". I do not believe there is proof that statement is true for afe or s&b
