We swapped the location of the air intake and battery, allowing our intake to not only be closer but also directly in line with the front air inlet. Additionally, our intake tube has minimal bends as it connects to the turbo inlet. These details result in a signifcant decrease in restriction compared to the stock intake.
This kit comes with a massive, highly-efficient air filter which results in better performance and protects your engine. Available in either 8-layer Cotton Cleanable or Dry Cleanable media. Both filters feature a black powder coated steel cage for added protection.
The OEM intake tube is small in diameter and highly restrictive. S&B's intake tube was designed with a huge diameter to allow for insane amounts of airflow to be fed to your engine. More airflow equals better performance. We use an innovative insert in order to get our gigantic tube to work with the MAF sensor parameters of a stock truck.
Important Note: Removing this insert will cause your truck to drive poorly and possibly display a check engine light, as it will no longer conform to the stock calibration’s desired MAF readings.
Included is a black zinc plated support bracket to stabilize the intake tube and filter assembly inside the engine bay. The support bracket contains a grommet which accepts a prong at the bottom of the tube, eliminating the need for hardware and allows for quick and easy filter maintenance.
S&B devotes a huge amount of resources to engineer our intakes that allows your engine to run properly with stock calibration or enhanced tuning. The kit was designed to avoid check engine lights by maintaining proper airflow mapping of the Mass Air Flow Sensor.
This kit Includes a new S&B battery tray that swaps the location of the OEM battery, This allows our intake to not only be closer to, but also directly in line with the front air inlet.
