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?
