I need your opinion on Intake

I want to upgrade my intake (first upgrade) but don't want to drop $300 for the K&N FIPK system. I've read the threads of the DIY but I don't have time. This looks like a good $100 system, what do you guys think? Please give me input! eBay Motors: 94-98 K&N INTAKE KIT FORD POWERSTROKE 7.3 SYSTEM AFE (item 120152686762 end time Aug-24-07 19:42:34 PDT)

p.s. - I have read how lots of you hate K&Ns, however I have used them in all my trucks and four wheelers and don't mind them at all!!

I found an AFE Stage 1 for my 01 F250 for $80 shipped... gets you away from K&N and is less than $100 - just keep an eye out for them and pounce once what you want pops up!

A lot of guys don't like the k&n filter. If you dust a turbo you will know why. Do the diy or afe setup.

I would like to have a heat shield. I also think that people dust their turbos with K&Ns because they don't know how to oil them properly

- that can happen to any oiled filter... but now they have dry filters that are sweeeeeet from AFE.

And yes - I found my Stage 1 on ebay for under $100 bucks... there are deals out there, you just have to keep an eye out for them

I have the K&N FIPK and I'd say go with the BIG AFE if you can spare the $$$. What I've learned is even though K&N is a wet filter the filter element holes are bigger thus they let by more debris even though they are wet, and it has NOTHING to do with "knowing" how to oil the filter element. If you can read, you can do it right!

The afe systems are dry, larger filter element than the K&N and have tigher filter elements I.E. smaller holes in the filter. I've already spent on the K&N, that's the only reason I haven't changed, and that I don't do MUCH dirt driving.

I have the K&N on my 7.3 and I drive lots in dusty conditions and it has worked well. I frequently check for evidence of dusting and so far there is none, however, if I was to replace it I would definitely look at something different because there are better products out there, like the AFE dry filters.
