wow.... thats all i can say. i had a K&N but it just did not fit real well and did not add alot of power. I'm not a S&B employee!! i just want to get the word out about this intake. when something is that easy to put in and it does well i can not help it.

I installed mine yesterday and am very happy. I'm not even an armchair mechanic and I was able to install the S&B in an hour (very meticulous since I suck at wrenching). It really was a 'measure twice, cut once' approach, so if you're mechanically inclined, this thing could be installed in a half hour.

The only hassle I had was getting the hump adapter/flange adapter connection. Took about 10 minutes for me to get that all done.

I love the results! Turbo is noticeable under acceleration but the truck is quiet while croozin'. Great buy IMO.

Now for chips and gauges. Not planning on messing with the exhaust....Yet.

I dont see the point of putting an intake on a diesel unless your running a bigger turbo or twins. the ac delco drop in have proven to be very efficient and will cost you 90% less.

unless of course you just like to hear it.

last time i checked this wasnt a gm or chev we were talking about, ive never seen anything AC delco on a dodge, besides the factory intake tubing is constrictive, with baffels and pinches, and the factory air filter is also restrictive

you can gut the intake tube and drill holes in the factory airbox, and get an aftermarket filter that will flow better, but you can still gain more airflow from an aftermarket intake boost tube and a cylindrical filter with a far larger surface area:Thumbup:

On the Cummins an aftermarket intake (No AC Delco in them) means better airflow which means better MPG's, lower EGT's, better throttle response, and better power. This is especially true while using programmers and boxes.

Of course that only matters if you are in to those sorts of things.
