Help for a Newb

Hello I’m a newb! I recently purchased a 96 F350 and I’m looking to make sure I get the most out of her. I have been reading past posts on recommended first mods and I have a few questions.

What is a DIY filter and how do I make one?

Gage packages are these additional gages or replacement gages?

Thanks for the help

Drew

First of all Welcome to the ORG!!!!
Everybody in here had those exact same question before.
The filter is a napa 6637 paper filter element and there are several ways to fit one into you rig.
Gauges are in addition to your dash gauges.
Most typically people add trans. temp, EGT and boost.

Welcome to the org.!

DIY Tymar is just an open filter element attached to your intake tube. You'll need to remove the stock air box. Use the search feature. Here's a pic or two of mine. 96 may be diff than my 2001?



Here's a good way to get air to that new filter. I call it the HankDaddy Mod.

Are there any limitations to a DIY filter for example how does it perform in ice and snow (given my location).

Thanks

There have been many discussions of this before. Most agree that rain and snow are not a problem.

Did you bring this truck from conus to Alaska. If it is a southern truck There will be some cold related mods you will need to make.

I bought the truck here in Anchorage. It has the standard cold wx stuff (block heater, Batt blanket etc…). I was thinking mostly of road-spray and the like.

Most say lots of rain and snow is not a problem. I know people who plow snow with it.
