So what's the shizzle for 2nd gen aftermarket intakes these days? 15 years ago the AFE mega Cannon was what I used, have things changed much since then. I cruised Rips page and see he's selling S&B intakes so they must be decent.

Interesting that you can get a washable or a throw away filter.

Any other suggestions here?

S&B is compareable to AFE.

S&B is good filter at a good price.

AFE and S&B offer dry filters. Only afe dry filter is washable. S&B unit is disposable at $50 for a replacement

I have been running an AFE dry filter since the twins were built. Works good for me.

If buying a drop in air filter system S&B seems to be the most affordable IMHO.

This is for the battery connection guy. Maybe I'll suggest he get the throw away dry filter, he puts almost no miles on the truck anyway, a filter would probably last him years.

I had a S&B intake once but the intake drone was awful! I disliked it enough I took it out, but I'm a bit on the picky side.  If you have a loud exhaust it should cover it up pretty well.

Thanks Vaughn. I've never heard or heard of an intake drone. For all I know I could be living with it and not even know it lol. Must be an effect of intake pulses resonating in the airbox?

Honestly, i have used the NAPA 6637 filters in 3 vehicles now. They keep EVERYTHING out of the turbo intake, and allow a ton of air flow.

 

They mate up perfectly to the stock 4" intake from the air box, and will sit where it used to live.

Yeah, it seemed to amplify the air pulses going into the engine, and was pretty annoying at certain RPM bands especially around 1800-2000. Will see if I can dig up my thread about it.

I'm running an S&B dry filter. I do oil analysis every oil change and have never been too impressed with the washable filters and their filtering capability. My S&B dry shows super low silicone (dirt) on my oil analysis so I'm happy with it. Seems to flow just fine also.

An Outerwear cover doesn't hurt either
