S&B OPEN AIR INTAKE KITS
S&B Filters has released their new intake kits, rightfully called the Open Air Intake kits. These new air intake kits do not use an enclosed air box like all of the other air intake kits produced. Instead, they use a much larger filter and giant intake tube to maximize the airflow to the engine. If you are after maximum airflow and a HUGE air filter, these are the kits for you. Below are the kits currently offered by S&B, with more to come, so be sure to check back.
LESS RESTRICTIVE THAN STOCK
S&B swapped the location of the air intake and battery, allowing the intake kit to not only be closer but also directly in line with the front air inlet. Additionally, the S&B open air intake tube has minimal bends as it connects to the turbo inlet. These details result in a significant decrease in restriction compared to the stock intake.
S&B's BIGGEST FILTER EVER
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.
BIGGER TUBE - BETTER PERFORMANCE
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. They used an innovative insert in order to get the 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 desired MAF readings.
ADDED SUPPORT BRACKET
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.
NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS
S&B devotes a huge amount of resources to engineer their intakes that allows your engine to run properly with stock calibration or enhanced tuning. These kits were designed to avoid check engine lights by maintaining proper airflow mapping of the Mass Air Flow Sensor.
