I would go with the S&B for superior filtering over AFE and great performance!

truthaboutfilters

S&B has done alot of research and held up to industry standards. No BS tests. check it out
U cant go by one companies biased test. U need a neutral tester to compare filters. So to say that S&B is superior is BOGUS. Im not saying the Afe Stage 2 is better because i dont have experience with the other filters except the Afe Stage 1. But to claim that S&B is superior because THEY tested it against others is not a true test or claim.

I say S&B, for what it's worth. I think the kid is RAD.

wow, thats not a biased website. Its owned by s&b, of course they're not going to say another filter outperforms theirs. Besides that, they're only comparing OE type drop in filters, not the aftermarket intake kits with the bigger filters. Also, even on their own site, the AFE pg7 has a higher efficiency rating(better filtration). If the s&b flows more cfm, its only because its letting more debris through.

I still personally believe you can’t bet the DIY filter setup for filtration and flow and price. Total cost is around $40 and takes only about half an hour to do. I don’t see how a smaller filter can flow more without letting more dust through. One of the best things I like about it is there is no cleaning or oiling, just replace it every two years or so in about 2 minutes and your done. http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj235/alabamafrog/zMISC Stuff/Engineright.jpg

Is that stock piping with a filter? where did you get the filter? Did you have to make anything for that to work? Can you hear the turbo more?

AFE II w/PG7: 75-10192
S&B: 75-5028

For the dollar spent, I think S&B is the winner. Due to the size of the AFE II, I believe it will outflow the S&B enclosed, smaller, unit. However, looking at the ISO 5011 testing numbers, S&B has them in the filtration department. Id dont think you can make a wrong choice with either intake.

AFE stage II here also...

When you're shopping around just remember, you CAN'T get a filter with the best cfm flow AND the best protection. You sacrifice one for the other. If you're flowing more air, you're lettin in more dirt. If you're filtering every micron, you're chokin it for air....

And that websites about as neutral as Fox news...give me a break
