    Looking to see which is better between S&b or Afe. I know there pretty much the same thing. But looking to see how much fuel mileage was gained and better overall on a 7.3l.

    Thanks.

    The only thing I was worried about with that is, wouldn't it be better to have a cold air intake? But I am going to check that out, well worth it!

    your truck has an intercooler, I wouldnt be too worried about intake temps. Even cheaper, a 45 degree 4" elbow and the 6637 filter from NAPA

    That is true, napa the filter is 58$. But would the 45 connect from the stock intake tube to the filter?

    napa filter is $58, riffraff filter is $28.
    you can buy the filter alone, or the kit which comes with the filter, elbow, and cleanable cover for an initial price of $79. then you only need to wash the cover and replace the filter every 2-3 years.
    to buy the parts seperatly through napa or other places will cost you close to $100

    I bought that filter from Everything Truck Parts (the actual Donaldson Filter) for $38 shipped to my door. Home Depot sells the 45* angle PVC for a couple bucks.

    Cheap but effective. I'm not worried about the "filter cover", that is what the filter is designed for and only restricts air more.
