i have an 08 duramax and i want an intake.. i hear that i wont need one until i have over 500 horses.. and if i do get one im recommended afe and thats hella expensive.. so tell me is there any big difference in the quality of an s&b intake and an afe intake and would it be worth getting right now? thanks

Stick with the stock filter.

The stock flows comparable CFM, holds more debris, stops finer / smaller debris, won't cause issues with MAF sensor, etc..

I don't recommend an aftermarket air filter until you have a turbo or compound setup that requires a custom intake system. Even then, I would be looking at a dry filter element if possible.

A CAI is a waste of money and money you can invest somewhere else in your truck.

Nothing at all wrong with S&B, in fact its a very popular option around here. And no, I don't think you need to concern yourself with one just yet. did you already delete your dpf? that, exhaust and efi live i'd probably recommend.

my 0.02... just do some personal customization stuff until then. debadging, painting the chrome if you don't like it.. its the small stuff that gets me by when I'm saving up for the big stuff.. unfortunately I'm almost completely out of small stuff to do and I'm horrible with idle hands.. bad combination lol
