Start with throwing the K&N and the Edge in the garbage. They are both horrible products.

Then you need to Delete the emissions equipment and to do that you will need a "real" tuner. H&S is the best RaceME is the cheapest.

Just curious. Why is H&S the best? If I recall, 67Guzzler had both and liked the RaceME better.

2 Big reasons. 1. It has the ability to custom tune 2. Transmission tuning.

67Guzzler doesn't like the RaceME better. He was able to sell his mini maxx for a profit and still buy the RaceME. He will tell you himself the H&S is still a better overall product because of what they offer.

I would like to have the ability to tweak tunes myself so h&s would seem to be the best product. Not to mention they are all over this board with positive reviews.

They are junk. They allow dirt into your engine. Or at least I believe it does.

The RaceME is the best VALUE for my needs. The H&S is the gold standard. If money were no object (and H&S didn't make me mad with some of their crazy "joint ventures") I probably would have never sold mine. But the RaceME at $600 (price for now -- It's going up 12/1/2013 I think) is a GREAT VALUE.

Cheapest in the sense of PRICE I agree. But it's in no way "CHEAP" in the way of performance or value. It handles the deletes perfectly with no issues, offers 4 power levels, 4 timing levels, reads and clears codes and lets you set your tire sizes all for $600.

True! I sold the H&S Mini Maxx Race WITH Pyro in like new condition for about $900 more than what I paid for the RaceME.

The turbo will suck the oil out of the filter first and apply a nice coat of oil all over the fins. Then the filter is no longer capable of filtering and begins to dust your motor.

Every truck I have ever seen with an oiled filter has a mixture of oil and dirt all the way down the intake tube and stuck to the turbo.

x2 K&N designed their filters to be oiled, while some may disagree I'd never put an oiled filter on something that's turbocharged. Like someone stated earlier that oil gets pulled through the filter and where does it go?... I only use dry filters, when it gets dirty just toss it and buy a new one. Not as cost friendly as a cleanable/cotton filter but to me it's a better piece of mind.
