Wrong, stock intake will not flow enough air to sufficiently support 500hp. The 500hp thing is nothing more than a myth. Stock is good to about 425hp...past that it just can't supply enough air that the turbo demands(especially a larger one) and becomes restrictive. If anyone has ever paid any attention to the filter minder that these trucks are equipped with...you'd notice this. Another reason why some intake brands that have the enclosed box style will suck the filter minder in because the turbo is demanding more air than the filter can actually flow

I've seen numerous trucks with just exhaust and race tune suck the filter minder in at least half way stock airbox and new oem filter. I've also seen trucks with same mods suck it in all the way with the addition of a powermax. There was an instance that I had a truck never suck it in do to a faulty/sticking filter minder

Ive had multiple aftermarket intakes suck it in more than a stock filter. A nice little trick with the stock set up is to gut a stock filter out for track use. Point is if it was a major restriction i doubt i would have run 12.7 with 155s or run 13.2 with stock sticks.

My truck with the Kc stage 2 would suck the filter minder in if i laid into it for a few gears. I bought the one in the link i posted a few weeks ago. Egt's seem a little lower and spool up is quicker. I'm happy.

If it's like the 6.4 the filter isn't the real restriction, it's the snorkle.

Yes you can still make power and run those times with a stock intake, but that isn't my point. Hell, you can make over 600hp if you wanted with the OEM setup. But why would you want to restrict airflow when the turbo tends to demand more of it at levels about 425hp
