K&N Cold Air Intake

Hey guys. As you know my truck is 100% stock and I'm hesitant to do anything that could hurt it. (now over 300,000) However, I'm thinking of a cold air intake. I've heard that this will make my turbo whistle louder. Is that true? Is this the best thing to get?

In my opinion K&N sucks lets too much dirt through. Look into an AFE or AEM about the same money and great product

In that case, I'm looking at this particular one: eBay Motors: 94-98 FORD POWERSTROKE INTAKE KIT 7.3 SYSTEM WITH AFE (item 120114153343 end time May-04-07 20:24:57 PDT)

However, this one has no plastic box around it. Is that important? Also, am I going to notice any real difference in the turbo whistle?

that one is a decent filter. Basically a DIY tymar setup. that is another idea. Here is a link all you would need is a filter and piece of 4 inch exhaust pipe

I know its for the super duties but you should be able to do something like this for yours

I bought the Tymar, less than the K&N and a better filter. It hurt fuel mileage the first fill up though. That may have had something to do with getting in the throttle to hear the whistle. It did help a lot.

it will help you hear it a little but scottphillips88 we got the same trucks and the intake didnt do a whole lot for sound BUT THE EXHAUST is a different story the reason we cant hear our turbos is b/c our downpipe is literally about an inch wide and shaped like an oval no joke get an exhaust system OR just get a bigger dp that will bolt onto your factory system. i was goin for the same thing lookin to hear the whistle an mbrp exhaust took care of that problem! : )

Here is a link for a picture in my garage.

The black spots on this K&N filter is not dirt, bugs, or any other debris. They are holes thanks to sand one weekend trip to the sand dunes and my filter looked like swiss cheese. I have went to a tymar filter setup.
