no complaints here. reasonbly priced, and at the time it was the only one i could find for the 6.7.... i may have went with the ice box if it'd been out

not haveing running one, i can't give you a great reason, i'v just seen lots of good stuff on them on here. search for it and read up. but stay away from K&N, one of the worst filters out there. i'm sure more people will chime in about the cold air intakes here.

well, you won't see much mileage gain untill you dump your dpf. that's step one to mileage. work from there.

I got a K&N intake and filter. 2 weeks later I put an Amsoil filter on. It is dry with 2 micron filtration. I'd go with the Icebox w/Amsoil filter. :thumbsup

I love my Icebox! Of course, this is my first Cummins, so I only have the stock intake to compare it to, but it was a very simple install (even a girl can do it under 30 minutes! and that was taking my time..) I love the fact that the Amsoil filter is dry, cause I hate oiling filters! Sounds better, breathes better, quicker take off, only problem I found was that I liked it so much when I first installed it, that my mileage dropped! But Ive slowed back down, and back to normal fuel mileage.

I just put a Volant with a scoop on my 06 3500....I love it...its a dry filter setup and fully inclosed box and the scoop comes out down at the fog light. My turbo whistles so LOUD....I can almost hear it over the straight pipe. I have not a 1 complaint about a Volant Intakes. My dad runs S&B on his....good intake, but that oil filter is for the birds

I would suggest a Amsoil filter on whatever you end up with. I like my volant a lot, but I got a deal I couldn't pass up. If I were to do it again I would go with the IceBox. They are made with some amazing quality and very friendly guy who runs it.

i run a K&N intake, gets me into the 11's so far..eveyone says K&N is bad... i just dont clean it as often. they filter better when a little used... and has plenty of volume, like i said, to get me in the 11's...cant be too bad.

Then again i have never used anything else yet.
