Default Question about CAI for the new 2011 6.7L

Hey everyone maybe someone could give me some info on what I heard from my dealer.

I asked the dealer about making the truck more powerful w/ better fuel economy and they were fine with the dpf and egr delete as long as i kept the tuner on a low HP setting but im not sure if its going to run too "hot" for my transmission. My real question here was the dealer told me never to put a CAI on the new 6.7s because they dont filter out enough particulate matter which can potentially harm the motor over time. He said that the stock intake was the best system for the truck. Said that with the increased flow there will be a decrease in filtering.

Has anyone else heard this and if its true would it be worth putting a CAI on it anyways?

I've heard the same thing and if a dealer here sees a cummins with a K&N they are claiming to void the factory warranty.

The Dodge diesel tech that I know has said they have been told to check for after market intake systems and for "dusting" in the turbo. If they find any they will void the warranty. For a number of years the stock intake system for Dodge diesels has been one of the best you could have unless you were producting in excess of 500hp. There is an excellent write up about Dodge intake systems in the tech section here--PSM Intakes
