New Intake Installed on 03 7.3

Well I finally broke down and bought a S&B intake for my truck against All others advice and now I see why.

I don't have any pics yet. Will post upon request.

Have not had it installed long enough to calculate fuel mileage.

But I will say this It does look nice.

I will also say this as well. I was the most difficult intake to install EVER! It does not fit easily what so ever. Does need bending and screaming and yelling.
Once you have installed the way the directions say and then take it out and do it your way, its not so bad.

It does sound good. So far I am not sure how much I like it but I will keep you updated as I will be adding a chip to my truck soon.

My current mods are now

S&B intake
10K resistor
Turbo Back 4" MBRP

Update it does sound great and when I let off the throttle the sound of the turbo slowing down echo down the pipe!
I like the performance and sound so for and it looks good in the engine bay.
Just a ***** to install.
