    Did you do the drop in or the entire intake? From what I've heard, you'll hear the turbo more but won't really see any substantial change like we did in the 7.3s. Ever since the 6.0, Ford has really stepped up their game and made sure these motors are well aspirated. Seems like I remember the 6.0 intake being good up to ~500hp?

    Just my 2 cents. Let us know your results! Maybe I could be proven wrong.

    Thanks for your .02 Jourdan. ;tu

    Nah.. didn't go with the whole intake set-up, just yet.. just the deeper oval (not flat) drop-in one. I'm not expecting anything "Yahoo" from it.. just a little more surface area and service life, the fact it can be cleaned and re-installed is a plus too. Most Definitely several notches above the OEM pleated paper thing, as far a quality and design goes.. IMO.

    We'll see.. time will tell.

    Waaay to soon to tell.. but it seems to be a litlle more pepy on the low end, but that could be jus cuz it's New & Clean.

    I'll give it a fill-up or two.. If I see or feel anything noteable.. I'll post it up JR.

    How are you liking that dry filter? I'm looking at options on a 2017 truck and the air intake is one item on my list. I have used an oiled filter for about 200k miles on my '02 and can't complain at all. How long does a dry filter last?

    thanks, Big Joe. Fit right into the stock box, right? I ran the oiled PG6 for about 10 years or more on my '02. Just curious about the dry filter as an alternative.
