AFE Stage II Intake

Air. That's the first half of the equation to making more efficient useable horsepower. While the stock intake system filters great, the needed flow just isn't there if you're looking for more oomph and better efficiency. The AFE Stage II Intake system not only fills that requirement, it goes above and beyond it. AFE has gone to great lengths to ensure its filters not only filter better but flow better as well, removing any and all restrictions from the intake side of the turbocharger.

The Stage II from AFE has become one of the most popular aftermarket intake systems. The fit and finish is flawless, with high quality powdercoated boxes that seal against the hood, keeping hot underhood air out. They work great, they look great and installation is easy, just a few minutes in the driveway and some basic hand tools.

With the open box design, the AFE filter can now breath fresh, cool air, aiding in the motor's overall efficiency. While we didn't have time to make before and after dyno runs with this particular truck, we've seen the same AFE Stage II intake system gain 27 hp on a 2008 6.4L Power Stroke. Increased air flow is vital when it comes to how well your truck will perform.

Now this doesn’t have to be an immediate family member, but in a lot of cases it is. It could easily be your uncle, a cousin or even your niece or nephew that is serving today...
