S&B Cold Air Intake Kit and Elbow Value Package is a Great Deal!

OC DIESEL Part Number SB 73-1000 (S&B Cold Air Intake Kit and Elbow Package) applies to the Dodge Cummins Diesel equipped with a 5.9L engine from vehicle manufactured date ranging 1998.5 to 2002. S&B diesel performance intake kits are all about improving airflow to your trucks engine. Its just a matter of superior design. Better airflow translates into a noticeable increase in power and acceleration.

S&B’s intake kits are engineered to improve the airflow to your trucks engine. It starts with years of research and development, as well as the most technically advanced testing. S&B tests to the ISO 5011 Air Filtration Standard in a climate-controlled lab when designing and testing their intake kits. This is the same technology used by Ford, Chrysler and General Motors to design the original induction system that comes on your vehicle.

During the ISO 5011 testing, S&B first measure the restriction of the airflow through your vehicles original induction system in order to establish a baseline. The goal of a Performance Intake Kit is to reduce the restriction of the airflow to your vehicles engine. In simple terms, we want to make it easier for the engine to breathe. By reducing the restriction of the airflow, your engine will have better throttle response and produce more horsepower and torque. Since your engine will not have to work as hard to produce the required amount of power the result is better fuel economy.

Banks High-Ram Intake Improves Response & MPG

How airflow restrictions waste power
  • Intake Restrictions cause engines to work harder.
  • Exhaust back pressure generates a massive engine heat-load
  • To expel exhaust power is taken from the crankshaft
  • The cooling fans will run more, taking power and making noise
  • Increased friction from hot, degrading lubricants
  • Gasoline-vehicle makers mask poor-airflow problems (eg. detonation) with overly-rich fuel
  • Excess fuel is wasted, worsening mileage and emissions
  • Inadequate airflow chokes engine’s potential
Larger & less restrictive than the puny stock air intake, Banks High-Ram allows a greater flow of oxygen-rich air into the cylinders for instant torque & responsiveness + greater fuel economy.
Cooler, denser air packs real power. That’s an absolute fact. So why would you choke off all that power-packed air at the last second on its way from the intercooler to the intake manifold? That’s exactly what the stock air intake does.
The 3 inch Banks High-Ram changes all that. Designed on the computer using computational fluid dynamics, tested on the flow bench and proved on the dyno, High-Ram is much more than just another pretty air inlet. For even greater airflow with more power and improved throttle response, step-up to the 3 1/2 inch Banks High-Ram system with Boost Tube.

Above: Notice how cramped and angular the factory inlet is
compared to Banks’ larger, streamlined cast-metal High-Ram

How Often Should I Clean and Service My S&B Filter?

S&B LogoThe capacity of an air filter is directly related to how often you must service your filter. Capacity is defined as the total amount of contaminants/dirt particles that the filter will hold before reaching its termination point. The termination point is a predefined restriction number that is used as the cut-off point when measuring how much dirt a filter will hold. For typical passenger cars and light-duty trucks, 10” H2O is used at the termination point.

In OE applications, a new filter must be purchased every time the filter reaches maximum capacity. Not only is this costly, but it also creates unnecessary environmental waste. When an S&B intake kit or performance air filter is installed, you simply clean and re-oil the air filter per S&B’s specifications. Keep in mind that the conditions that the vehicle is operated under will determine how quickly it will take a specific filter to reach its capacity. With this being said, you can compare the ISO 5011 test results to find the difference in capacities for the OE air filter and the S&B air filter on the Orange County Diesel website just look up the part and click on the “extended information” tab.

The spreadsheet below is the Service Factor for each filter, this compares how the frequency of Servicing the Filter is affected. For example, if the S&B filter capacity is half that of the OE filter, the Service Factor is twice that of the OE filter. Simply put, you will have to clean the S&B filter in half the time you would normally take for an OE filter to load.


It is extremely important to clean and oil your filter correctly. Instructions, oil amounts and other pertinent information regarding S&B filters can be seen on the Orange County Diesel website in the description of each filter or intake and can also be found in the manual for the product under the “extended information” tab.

S&B Performance Intake Kit? How much horsepower will I see? Will it increase fuel economy?

S&B LogoHorsepower can be increased by increasing airflow to the vehicle’s engine. Typically, the OE stock air box and induction tube significantly restrict the airflow. S&B design’s its intake kits to increase the amount of horsepower by 5-10% by allowing the engine to breathe easier.

S&B does not publish horsepower results specific to each part because the majority of our competition makes outrageous horsepower claims that are unsupported and often are accompanied by the disclaimer “Up To, As Much As, or Results May Vary.” There is no standard for dyno testing, it is difficult to hold our competition accountable for their inflated claims. S&B utilizes its 1/2 million dollar, climate controlled lab to test its intake kits and filters to the same standard (ISO 5011 Test Standard) used by the OE manufacturers, so there is substance behind S&B’s test results.

S&B publishes 2 critical results: airflow & efficiency

1. Airflow Rating: This rating shows how much the filter/intake improves the airflow vs. stock. Improving the airflow results in more power and better fuel economy.

2. Efficiency Rating: Protecting your engine while dramatically improving the airflow is S&B’s competitive advantage which is why we post the efficiency numbers along with the airflow rating. The efficiency rating shows how much dirt our filters will stop. Our minimum goal for efficiency is 99.0%.

Question:
Will an S&B cold air intake kit provide me with an improvement in fuel economy?

Answer:
The simple answer is yes. By lowering the restriction level vs. stock, the S&B intake allows the engine to work more efficiently which will improve fuel economy.

According to the Department of Energy, a dirty air filter will have an adverse affect on fuel economy. Fueleconomy.gov states that replacing a clogged air filter can improve your car’s gas mileage by as much as 10 percent.  The reason a clean filter improves fuel economy is because it is less restrictive than a dirty filter, so the engine works less to consume the air it needs. This S&B intake kit is substantially less restrictive than the OE induction system with a clean filter installed thus allowing the engine to breather even easier which results in better fuel economy. S&B does not make a specific claim with regards to fuel economy because there are too many factors that can affect your miles per gallon.
