Hmm, lets see, where do I start?

The best intake for the 7.3L is the AIS.

HP gains are from increased fuel not airflow, more air just keeps the pistons from melting.

90% of mpg can be controlled by your right foot.

The 1st reason for buying an aftermarket intake for the 7.3L should be to rid yourself of the crappy stock housing that lets dirt bypass the filter.
After that, it depends on your plans for the truck, if it's a DD with mild mods the AIS is your #1 choice.
If your planning BIG hp mods then an open air filter like the Tymar/AFE would flow the most air.
