    Checked around aem's website and it seems they don't have an app for the truck with that engine yet, I'm not a salesman but volant make a dry filter intake now and based on personal experience volant make a high quality product, hope this helps.

    i love my oiled filter.

    I've never heard of an XDI intake, but i suggest you get it and let us know.

    I have a TrueFlow replacement filter in my truck. If flows as good as K&N but filters better. The XDI is the top of the line full intake kit from TrueFlow. It uses the same foam filters that my replacement uses but in a cone shape and full intake tube. There's good info on trueflow on youtube or on their website.

    If your looking for oil free, look on. These still use oil.

    i have no problem with the oiled filters... just wanting to try new technology. ive had a k&n in every vehicle i have ever owned and no problems out of any of them. just lookin for something new. probably will end up getting the k&n though. i know they work and dont really have to worry bout them.

    I've had several different brands K&N, Weapon R Secret Weapon, TrueFlow. I'm very happy with my TrueFlow and if you check out their site and the videos the company has linked to on YouTube, they filter much better but flow just as good as K&N.

    I just bought a true flow filter and i love it. You can actually feel a better throttle response and it got 6.5 mpg better fuel milage. i will tell everyone about them. and the good thing is, they are a little expensive than k&n.
