    Yeah, serpentine strands you'll find on most 7.3's They just don't like to be rev'd too much or the belt will jump a cog then rip it's edge off

    Will see how well she filters after some miles

    Ok.... but remember it's an irreversible process of the rings and cylinder walls getting honed by the dust!!!

    And BTW... at the revs you are normally running her you will NOT see any power increase... it is strictly in the upper(near red line) revs that the air cleaner could make a difference in restricting air flow... and I actually doubt it would make much if any unless your regular filter was due for a changing anyways

    I went to the Ford AIS Severe Duty air cleaner soon after I bought my truck, Donaldson design and Desert Storm tested. Flows more than I'll ever need with my stock tune.

    You can get a good view of the Turbo Wheel for signs of "dusting" by removing the next rubber tube.

    I too am a big fan of the Ford AIS system, it looks like it belongs there while doing an extra good job of filtering (most of those aftermarket filter look like something a kid with FartCan would put on their engine )

    I have personally seen two Duramaxes dusted to death running K&N type filters, why would someone put a filter like that on a farm truck? I have no trust in those myself.

    K & N filters IMO are only good on water craft like Jet ski's etc.

    I run a big Donaldson filter on my PS
    It fits perfectly with a 4 inch pipe for plumbing.

    I figure if itís good enough for a big truck itís good enough for the stroker.

    Have also heard that K&N are about the worst for actually filtering the air. That's why they flow good. For racing on pavement they may be OK because there isn't usually a lot of dust on the tracks. For a daily driver I wouldn't use one. If you're concerned with mileage changing the filter is a waste of time and money, maybe lots of money if the filter isn't doing it's job.

    most performance aftermarket parts are for just that ..better performance..but at the cost of longevity and durability....all to just go faster......

    It's called the 6637 filter mod on the 7., if you really want good fuel mileage. Keep all your fluids changed at right intervals and run a fuel additive. I use rev-x in my 6.0

    Ford had a technical service bulletin for some of the 7.3 liter trucks of the 1998, 99 & maybe a couple of more years concerning the air filter & filter box. The suction from the turbo would unseat the rubber flange on the filter from between the air box halves and allow the engine to be peppered, it don't take long. Our 1999, or 2000 F350 ambo had this occur, & we put an AFE cold air intake on it before I got the TSB on it, we ran it until it wouldn't run any longer, the boss didn't want to put an engine in it. I've seen oiled filters on turbo diesels foul map/maf and ambient air sensors with oil from being over oiled. I've also seen many so called "cold air intakes" that are obviously worse than factory systems.

    I've had several '99s with V10 gassers and the best solution I found was to just enlarge the air intake hole in the radiator support. A 2'' hole saw just above and below the hole and remove the rest between the holes with the sawzall made a nice big oval hole that let lots of air into the filter box. Made 55 to 70mph passing speed in about 2 seconds vs the previous forever passing. It did not help with gas mileage but a guy with a 6.0 said that mod gave him 2mpg... ???

    What you describe is often called the "ZooDad" Mod. Another way to let more air into the airbox is to add, what's called, a "Fender Sleeve" that draws cold air from inside the Lf Ft fenderwell (the opening for the sleeve is already in the inner fender, you just need to cut the side of the airbox. I use both on the AIS filter I have).

Size:  149.0 KBput 3 coats of oil, hopefully thatís not too much. Not all loud like Iíve heard people say. ill check on the intake boot after this tank of fuel. It was breathing hot air before since there was no battery cover. I could fab my own to put over everything and kinda use half the factory cold air intake setup. Probably make some more power in the summer

    So ya know,,, there have been tests of the effectiveness of Cold Air Induction in a Turbo Diesel and they pretty much all agree it's Way overblown!

    The slight difference you may start out with, gets eradicated once that air is run through the Turbo, Compressed, and then passes through the InterCooler (the actual temp of the air entering the spider ends-up being unchanged). I just "like" the idea I guess

    For me, I just wanted to get rid of the big plastic airbox..... AKA mouse house.

    thats the only place they seemed to be drawn to.
