    I haven't used them, I heard bad things about the k and ns. I have the 6637 filter on mine, its not a cold air but it makes a big difference and is cheap.

    another vote for the 6637.

    but whatever you do, don't use the k&n. they let fines in that will dust your turbo and engine.

    type 6637 in the search box and it will take you rite to the filter page.
    $30 for the filter, and 35 for the cover from RiffRaff diesel.
    the last one was in my truck for 5 years and still pretty clean when i took it out. i wash the filter cover once per year.

    Clay at RiffRaff is a stand up guy too. he will do everything he can to make sure you get good service. he likes repeat customers.

    I got mine from riff raff as well. I think its worth it, just let's it breathe a lot better. Cold air intakes are different but much more expensive. I know a lot of people swear by it.

    no yo do not need it, and no it does not restrict airflow. all it does is acts like a prefilter and keeps the bigger crap out of the filter. you can make one out of a set of old nylon stockings.

    the RiffRaff sock just looks better.

    so the pre filter will help the air filter last longer

    Yes (maybe not by much but it does help) and it makes it look better

    It is cheap but effective. Do a couple searches on it through google I'd you need more convincing. I like the filter cover, its not.necessary though. I have had my filter on for probably 15k, its still good.

    I ordered through riffraff so that's the cover I've got. I ordered the whole kit since it came with the 4inch pipe for the filter and clamps and the cover. I also think clay does a good job, he helped me out when my injector cups went.
