Hey guys looking to pick one up for my truck but there's 3 options, new to all of this which one do you guys recommend?

afe big boost filter - 127 bucks
6637 donaldson blue 172 - 98 bucks
6637 filter - 88 bucks

and do these bring the adapter that hooks up to turbo?

I'd appreciate any insight emailed riffraff and haven't got back to me in a few days.

Thank you.

none of those....unless you just like noise....no benefit in my opinion except a lighter wallet.

stock filter is more than adequate unless you are making big power

you could also upgrade to the "severe duty" intake if your stock one is busted.

Unless it's a early model with the known issue of cracking the airbox.
He posted in 99-03, but I don't see his exact year anywhere.
I do like the AIS.

The oem intake is fine for moderate power applications but... the little metal tabs loose their tension and need to be bent back to hold the top intake lid down and prevent debris.

Otherwise I currently run the AIS severe duty intake due to liking the stock look and the filter last longer. It has a MINOR flow improvement over stock too.

honestly though any of the intakes you mentioned will not hurt anything it the 6637/Donaldson don’t always look the best depending on the person.

I'd hope that a broken part would be replaced...airbox or other

6637 filter will do just fine. not the best looking but it'll do the job.
