Default Intake systems

So, just a question for everyone, since I have recently really found the issues of a stock intake setup, just seeing what everyone thinks for the options for my Cummins.

And if you do choose a BHAF, would you get a solid intake pipe to create a better flow to the turbo?

What is best depends on what you want to do and spend. If you get a BHAF from NAPA they are about $50 and you don't need any thing else to put it on.

But is the 100 bucks for the torque tube worth it if I were to get the BHAF

And, at the moment I think I am leaking towards the BHAF with a heat shield, because I know it will filter well, not sure how well the dry S&B/AFE filters are

The dry S&B/AFE filters are just fine. With a BHAF and the original intake is all you really need, The heat shield doesn't do much IMHO. I have towed my trailer to Niagra Falls and back also to Yellowstone and back with absolutely NO heat degradation of the filter.

I don't believe its about degredation so much as it is about having lower intake air temps as it will take in less hot air off the turbo. I suppose a turbo blanket would do the same, but those are spendy I am sure.

I don't have the figures, but I recall that one person did extensive testing and found that the only time temps from the turbo were an issue (far as intake temps) was at an idle at a stop. When the truck is moving there is enough air moving under the hood to get the heat out.

I wouldn't worry bout the heat shield. One thing I would do is the outwears cover for the bhaf. Makes it last a lot longer in wet conditions and is very well worth it.

Personally I wouldn't even worry about the Outerwears. I only got 100,000 miles out of mine without it. One thing I do suggest is taking a 1"x6" board about 7" long and putting that over the studs so they don't 'chew' up the filter.

I have had water issues on my stock filter, so I would probably get the outerwear, it's from bashing around in the snow plowing, I am sure I get a ton of snow in the fender/engine compartment for that thing to suck in
