    Cool Intake Kits

    Has anyone ever used an S&B Intake Kit? They specialize in diesels and look pretty cool. Let me know your thoughts.

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Yes!

    I've been running the S&B system since October of '04, and I am very happy with it.

    It replaced a K&N FIPK system and works a lot better. Driving up the 73 toll road I saw a decrease of 150 degrees in egt at 75mph gping uphill compared to the K&N. Needless to say, I was very surprised by the difference.

    Additionally, the S&B appears to have the best filter element on the market. It's an eight layer element. It filters better and flows more air than the AFE regular or Pro-Gurad 7 filter elements. I guess they built this filter to better the AFE system.

    My next door neighbor works for S&B. That's how I ended up with my filter system and that's where I got the info from. Actually, he showed me the air flow info and filter efficiency info comparing a bunch of different filters (Not the PR info, but the actual test results).

    I've been running this filter system longer than most anyone (mine is a pre-production model), and I am happy to answer any questions about the filter. However, I am not a filter expert! So if you have technical questions, I will have to go next door and ask.

    Thanks!

    Talking S&B website

    S&B has a awesome new website...

    www.sbfilters.com

    They just launched it recently. They is also an opportunity to build your own filter if they dont make one already. Looks pretty darn good to me... If anyone has more info let me know. If not I think I am going to get one for my truck.
