S&B OE Performance Replacement Filter

let me know if you have any questions

But, if you're not producing over 400+ HP, isn't the factory actually a good filter?

the factory box is great. I have a factory intake on my truck with an AFE drop in filter. IMO spending 300 plus on an intake is silly

Zoodad, and the AFE replacement is on the list for me. I think if someone was to make a piece to replace the corregated plastic tube on the filtered side, you have a CAI that will be just as good for less than 1/2 the price!!!
