Many a Powerstroke turbo has been dusted due to a K&N filter, many of us with Powerstrokes have reinstalled the OEM Donaldson filters without taking a performance hit.

In the performance diesel world, the consensus is that K&N air filters are bad. They let more fine dust through into the engine than other quality performance filters. That said, I have no first hand experience.

But for a Strictly Stock type of guy why are you messing with OEM Chevy parts? They come from the factory the best they can be IMHO.

Or more appropriately, the best the manufacturer needs to get the engine through the warranty period. There are many options that are far better than OEM, but you'll pay for it. Sometimes a million mile item is needed. Sometimes not.
I view OEM as "minimum necessary". Acceptable? Yes. Best? No.

Never run a K&N on a turbo diesel, unless you want to destroy it for 0 performance gain

Just looked at her today but have plans to wash and wax this weekend.. Getting the dreaded black streaks on her. RCA cables came in so we can have sound in the speakers when we turn the TV on, those will get put on sometime soon.

The oem air filter for Cummins is one of the best filters to run. K&N will destroy a turbo.

Keeping the roof cleaned will go a long way to help avoid the black streaks.
