DIY CAI has anyone done it????

So has anyone done it yet? I know Dodge has the BHAF they do and I have seen the 7.3s with there DIY intake. I have searched all over on here and on google and still no luck.

There isn't much to gain with a DIY CAI on the 6.0L, it has a great filter from the start. (Proven for builds upto 500HP, should to decide filtration is worth more than power.)

There are a few companies offering a filter replacement option to the 6.0L airbox, but that's about it.

Depending on what you are trying to do, and looking at your sig info, it would appear you'd gain more with an S&B or AFE intake.

I have plans in the making warren injectors either stage 1 or 2 turbo from Adrian so I am just trying to peice everything together to see what I will need come winter for the build. I figured someone out there has done it. I have never felt a before and after differance of a CAI on a diesel but I know on my mustangs there was a better throttle response on take off.

You may feel a difference when going to an aftermarket CAI, but you will definitely hear the difference in that turbo.

Depending on your injector / turbo choice, and where and how you drive, you will benefit from a CAI (any build can benefit, just when you're only talking about tuning the truck, there's not enough return to justify it). I only caution that if you find yourself on dusty dirt roads often, you may want to keep the stock Donaldson air filter.

I travel down dirt roads like 5% of the time and when I do its a few miles. Eventually down the road the truck will be a 600hp daily driver
