Air Filter Cover Recall

I was reading the sticky at the top of the forum and noticed that there had been a recall (now expired) on the air filter cover because it can let dirt in. Does anybody have a part number for the new cover? Where can I buy it (other than from Ford)?

I'm not certain if there was a new cover, but they installed updated steel stud nuts to replace the plastic ones. By the time you mess with it if you don't have it, you'll be halfway to a DIY intake setup that'll work better than the stock box.

Best option just get a Tymar intake kit, its complete and delivered to your door for not much more than a DYI using all the required parts without the hassle of finding them. In stock..PM me.

Thanks for the info. I think your right that it is just the bolts, not the whole cover. I don't think I'm too interested in changing the intake, especially if it makes the truck louder.

Doesn't make it a bit louder. It gives more power though. Just a little bit. You can do the whole thing in about 15 minutes. Take the one visible bolt off of the bottom of the intake box, undo the hose clamp and pull the hose off, and then pull the box straight up. Take a 4" swiveling elbow for a 4" galvenized vent pipe, and use the clamp off the end of the hose that was connected to the box, and clamp it onto the elbow. Use a 4"-4" rubber plumbing connector (4 bucks, the one with a hose clamp on each end), and clamp one end of that to the elbow and the other end to your NAPA 6637 filter. Swivel the elbow until the filter sits like you want it to.

Dude AFE uses hose clamps on their intakes as do most of the major manufacturers

Dave, if using a Donaldson air filter a std hose clamp will not provide enough clamping force to seal the filter to the tube..thats why Tymar kits do not use them. Rubber plumbing fittings and their clamps are not designed to be Torqued past 60-inch-per-pound.
