The S&B 75-5053D Cold Air Intake System with Dry Filter is the ultimate in high-performance airflow for your 2011-2015 6.7L Powerstroke. This system was definitely worth the wait given that it improves the airflow by 32% versus the stock system and beats Banks' kit (#42215) by 19% at 580 CFM.
AFE's kit (75-11872) was able to match S&B's kit in airflow simply because their filter is only protected by a metal heat shield. A heat shield can be less restrictive than a custom air box; however, in our opinion it does not seal properly allowing the engine to ingest hot air. When AFE launches their intake with a custom box, we anticipate that our kit will far surpass theirs in performance.
Resistance to Flow Testing: Flows 32.0% better than the stock intake when measuring just the resistance to airflow.
Resistance to Flow while Dust Loading: Flows 14.6% better than the stock intake while loading the filter with ISO specified dust.
Efficiency Rating: 99.57% (Cotton Filter) Efficient @ 580 CFM (ISO Course Dust)
S&B tests to the ISO 5011 Test Standard to insure that your engine is properly protected, and we post these results on the web. Click on the Specifications Tab to download the actual test results and see how S&B stacks up against stock and the competition.
Almost Installs Itself
S&B used its laser CMM to help develop a kit that fits like a glove and installs in less than 30 minutes.
Larger Free Flowing Filter with Deep Pleats
The deeper the pleats, the more surface area on your filter which allow it to protect your engine while letting it breathe.
Domed Clear Lid
Easy inspection and removal of filter.
Radius on Filter Inlet
Air smoothly enters the intake tube reducing restriction and turbulence.
Integrates OEM Filter Minder
Securely plugs into S&B custom air box.
Engineered Mass Air Sensor Location
Designed to avoid a check engine light by mapping against the stock system.
Hump Hose Adapter
A flexible but secure connection that accommodates engine movement.
Reinforced (4-ply) Silicone Adapter

Integrates OEM Cold Air Ducting
Pulls air from the same location as the stock system allowing for use of the OE ducting for an excellent seal.
Huge Free Flowing Air Box
Protects filter from engine heat without choking off filter.
- Dry, Disposable Filter
- Improves Airflow Over Stock By 32%
