I don't like the K&N. Not a big fan of oil soaked filters. I also understand that cleaned and properly oiled it has less filtration than others. Had onr in my Ranger.

I think you will probably hear a lot of guys on this forum tell you to ditch it. I run a K&N on my 7.3 and my 6.0, no issues at all. I did however buy an AFE for my 6.4, but it was mainly because it was part of the package with the tuner.


My opinion, if it's already on there, leave it. But if you were going out to buy a new CAI, go S&B or AFE.

There are definitely better intake available like AFE or S&B, but Im sure you will be just fine. You can always switch out the K&N filter element for an AFE or S&B if they have one with similar dimensions.

i've never had trouble 'per se' with a K&N. BUT, the one I bought for my Dad's F250 (460ci gas burner) deteriorated to the point that you could see light through the filter in the pleats... Cleaned and oiled regularly (and properly), but did NOT last the million miles they claim.

I believe Fords threshold is 500hp and 1100tq. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think my performance shop told me that.
