Lightbulb AFE II Volant or Airaid

Just aquired an 09 2500 with the 5.7 I am looking to upgrade air intakes, after reading all 42pages i've concluded the K&N suck. The volant tis the best sealed box, AFE and Airaid have larger filter and cost around the same produce identical gains or butt feel.

What would you choose

I like the looks of the AFE II metal series and not prone to heat soak like the plastic piping, uses stock air box.

What is the best place to buy from?

Thank you FromFordtoRam for posting about S&B. I am curious to hear about this company as people seem to be stuck on Volant/AirRaid/Vararam. There's nothing wrong with those, but I'm not seeing too many posts about S&B.

Any thoughts?

reason why not many posts is they are fairly new. when they came out many people had others. there is a LONG write up by grubrunner i believe. very useful info.

That's the one that I saw too. That was some very useful information and it really motivated me to consider the S&B. Since there hasn't been a lot of talk about them, it has made me wonder.

Thanks for the input.
