i'm also thinking about getting an intake... i've heard its useless unless you are pushing over 500+hp. but i'm not sure either i would like to know if it would be worth it to get an intake like afe stage 2 with proguard vs. dry, whichever is better
same here. i was wondering about an afe stage two. im looking more for mpg more then power upgrades. i have a four inch cat back, and the last owner of the truck installed an upgraded turbin wheel, i think its from ats but im not really sure.
I run a modified Airaid, I took the bracket that IS supposed to seal against the hood off, cut and fabbed a 1/4" piece of plexiglass as a cover. Did the Zoodad mod as well. Works great, you can see your filter and determine when to clean.
I was reading in the diesel power mag. about the egr delete and I saw this intake in there..did a little research about it. looks kinda cool...Idk about the foam intake though! But it would match my red CFM. heres a link to it.
AEM has been throwing codes on the 6.0L AFE is good but way over priced, and S&B is just a little bit above k&n...for the money, power, quality, warranty, and customer service, AIRAID is the route to go. TrueFlow is supposed to be decent, but I haven't run them, I just know a few guys that work for them so I can't give you a real opinion.
K&N will damage your vehicle as they require a lot of oil, and that is the problem with oil...for filters like the AIRAID, they only require a little bit of oil and its not for filteration, the oil is to keep the cotton and the synthetic layer from breaking down. WIth the light coat of oil, you will never have any issues.
Over oiling any filter is harmful. I've never heard of K&N needing any more than others. I have a AFE now and I don't put any more or less oil on it than the K&N's that I've had.
As for the AFE I am very happy with it. Small increase in MPG, a little morre respnsive and I like the whine of the turbo.
