well im not sure on the 6.4 but on the 6.0 the stock air cleaner is way better then a aftermarket one but i have heard a lot of people with the 6.4 going with a s&b or afe. maybe some of the 6.4 people will chime in.

Wouldn't filtration have to do with the air filter and not the intake itself?

for a tuned truck, the 6.4 needs an aftermarket intake....as far as how good the Banks is compared to say AFE, i don't know.....if you are not running a tune then stock of course is just fine..........air intake claims about increased power and mpg, should be taken with a grain of salt... oh and your buddy was probably talking about intakes because Dmax's BLOW

Like said above if you have a tuned 6.4 you need a CAI. I would use what eveyone else is using afe/S&B. I have yet to hear of anyone using a banks filter. DirtyMax is completely different set up then a powerstroke.

I have the Banks unit on mine. Install is super easy, and looks great under the hood. With a tuner, even the Banks tuners you can feel a seat of the pants difference when you get on it. I especially like the fact that the Banks intake is nice and smooth on the inside, it literally has only one direction the air can go which is great when you think about air flow.

They generally cost more though which is one of the reasons allot of people don't recommend Banks when talking about CAI's, exhaust, etc.. But I've been very happy with mine.
