Getting new engine

So as the tittle states ford tells me I get a new engine soon engine has 30k on it as is and at 11k it had a valve issue and I was one of the Idaho trucks having this problem ford fixed my valves at 11k but put me on the list for new engine.

That being said I recently bought the extended warranty to 100k it was worth the money to me. I usually trade in every few years and get a new truck but as the miles add up the truck runs better so i might just keep it till that 90k mark! i tow very frequently (construction & horses) and the truck is stock. I hand add my mpg and average 15.7 oem daily/towing etc. I know everyone says dpf delete but I can't do that. So intake time.

My thoughts at the moment are should i get a s&b intake my dealer and tech are pretty cool, but against the dpf delete. Or should I wait till the new engine is put in?

Advice / criticism etc welcome

Thanks

Go ahead and get the intake. Then use it on the new engine. You'll love it . They won't revoke your warrantee or new engine for an air filter

Ford just replaced my 2011 engine with a new one. Dropped valve driver side. Long block from Detroit. !500 miles on the engine now. Dealer said Ford said was newest technology, and was same as 13s. I dont really know. Just glad they replaced it.

Does the intake, make any at all small HP increase, or make the turbo's spool a little louder? on a stock truck?

I just installed the S&B, no horse power to notice, I can hear the turbo a little better, with the windows down. Have no idea about fuel mileage, I don't think it had any affect.

The truck now has a nice intake growl to it, you can tell the intake was added. It is a quality set up. The motor sounds great with this intake and stock exhaust.
