Stock Intake Filter alighnment

Hey Guys

I finally got around to putting on a stock intake, only took me 4 years had to get one without a MAF, cause my truck is special.

My truck came with an aftermarket one and I really want better filtration and hopeing to reduce a little noise.

I got it all alighned and pressed together, yet it still shows a gap..is this normal? there is no leaks and it's seated in there as far as it will go.



Took it for a spin, and noticed that the compressor side of the turbo noise has quieted down alittle bit, less whine, and it idle smoother, and I swear it has more power from a dead stop wtf! Also, I boosted it up a few times, huge reduction in turbo farts.


On my aggtow tune I can still hit 25-27lbs of boost. I'm glad I went with a stock unit, and have the piece of mind of great filtration!

Looks like I'm gonna be selling my aftermarket intake

mine looks like it has a gap as well. After 80K+ miles, I have never seen any dirt/dust past the filter.


Just make sure the bottom tabs are in the holes in the filter, if they are, you should be good.

What aftermarket intake did it have on it?

Did you ever notice any pariculates getting past the filter?

A gap is normal. It was talked about a lot in the early years.

The aftermarket intake I have is the AFE Stage II, Magnum Force SI CAI. Good intake, I never had a problem with it. I plan on selling it.
