Intake

I just got a 1990 7.3 F250. Its non turbo, I have never had a non turbo diesel so I am new to it. I dont want to make a bunch of HP but I would like a good dependable motor/ truck. I would like to buy/ possibly make a intake. I need to know who makes the best quality intake for my truck? Also I have read that you can turn up (via youtube) to get a little more power. Any advice on that? Seems kinda easy but is it bad for the motor? Is there anything else that yall would recomend? Thanks

Nobody makes an intake for them to be honest. Some use gasser high rise filters. I heard rumor that an intake for a 5.2 dodge will bolt on. I would probably do the first one though.

Yes you can turn them up, but a pyro is highly recommended first (actually its a must). These things can get hot quick from the factory, it makes it even quicker when turned up.

the 6637 filter looks like the best airflow option. How do most guys attach them to the intake?

My "REAR ANTILOCK" light came on yesterday? What does this light mean and why is it constantly staying on? How do I make it go off?

Usually your RABS sensor on the rear axle. Don't really know what happens, perhaps you won't have RABS on a hard stop

The problem is finding a way to adapt those style filters to the intake.

Thanky pal. I will look into getting the sensor replaced. I am going to try to configure a old dodge intake that I have to fit this weekend.
