    Hello,

    I have a 2013 Raptor and considering installing an Air Intake. Considering one of the below. Any advise on which one would be better? This Raptor is gently run, not in desert, not in dust, mud, etc.
    Looking basically for a better way for engine to breathe, get some extra pony and hopefully gain some mpg...! Not crazy after the growl!

    * Raptor 6.2L K&N 77 Series High Flow Performance Metal Air Intake
    * Raptor 6.2L S&B Cold Air Intake Kit
    * Raptor 6.2L AFE Stage 2 Cold Air Intake System - Pro Guard 7

    I have the K&N CAI. Like it. Easy install. Looks good. Paper work that came with it had a sheet with dyno tests showing HP gain over stock system.

    I'm in the "none of the above" crowd. I just don't think they actually produce any power over just getting a good high flow filter. And certainly not worth the $300-400.

    I had the AFE and liked the sound. I didn’t use the lid witch made it a little louder. What exhaust do you have ?

    You might want to give Mike from 5 star a call and tell him what you’re looking for. A
    cai-exhaust and good tune really wakes up the 6.2 and gives you better hp,mpg,sound,crisp shifting. Good luck let us know how it turns out.

    Bill - the exhaust is OEM - standard. Did not have much time to change much. Nice picture you have here. AFE and WHIPPLE look almost the same. I see you have the WHIPPLE installed now. But to get you to 700HP you did a lot more...than only an Air Intake.

    Thank you all...

    I started with the cai,exhaust and a good tune. After driving a supercharged Raptor I decided to go with the Whipple setup.

    Yes the lid I referred to is the cover for the box you posted.

    Have fun making your Raptor just the way you want it.
