Question Questions from the FNG...

Alright guys/gals, Im trying to put together a quick order of a few components, so that they are at the house when I get stateside. Im looking at intake systems (i.e. cold air intakes) for my 04 6.0L Excursion.

1. Any feedback on an S&B system?

2. Any pros/cons on dry filters & cleanable filters?

I'm sure someone will want to yell at me for the newbie questions, no worries I got my big boy pants on.

Thanks in advance...

I'm not quite sure of the deal but I've seen several references to a K&N intake that is Super Diesel is looking to give away.

S&B filters are great K&N filters are a no no for turbo diesels, as are any of the oiled filters
I'm running an aFe stage 2 on my 6.4 with dry filter and love it

As far as an intake on a 6.0, it almost isn't needed until you break BIG power. The stock air filtration setup on a 6.0 will support 500 or so rwhp plus it filters really well.

Best things I can recommend for a 6.0 is a good straight pipe exhaust (4") coolant filtration, delete the EGR or go with a bulletproof setup, SCT tuning, and the blue spring fuel pressure upgrade.

Haha, the K&N intake is really a running joke ever since the first G2G back in last October. My turbo went bad and I blamed the K&N intake for it (it literally was being pulled apart and being sucked into the turbo). I threw that thing away a long time ago, I wouldn't give that to my worst enemy.

Totally not true, we proved this at the last Dyno Day at PHP. The stock intake is great for filtration, but if you want power - an aftermarket intake will net you 20 more RWHP if you have a tune on the truck. We dynoed it, we saw it happen.

Anyway, Patrick - a few guys in our group are running the S&B intakes and love them. I run the aFe Intake and love it. Either one, you'll be happy. I also have an oiled filter, no problems here.

I have the AFE stage II with a dry filter and really like it. It was on the truck when I bought it though. It's an expensive kit, but I think it does a good job.

I know it's a joke. I gathered that from the context of the posts I've read. The comment was just an attempt by a new guy to fit in with the cool crowd.

I run the S&B have no complaints about it. Worked on a buddys 6.0 over the weekend the has the air raid kit and did not like all the black soot and debris that came out of it when he washed it out. Just doesn't seem like there seal to the hood system works all that well. I like the S&B being a sealed lid design.

I'm running a S&B and love it. Chris' aFe intake is nice and easily comes in and out for service. Either one will work for you.

Tuned, Deleted, Filtered, Monitored...all the usual stuff.

As always, I greatly appreciate all of the input on this matter. In looking around I found an S&B kit with either the dry filter or cleanable filter, for $250 (new) plus a 10% off military discount. Sound like a reasonable price or should I keep looking? Thanks in advance...
