DIY Tymar intake

I'm new to the forum, about a week now, and from what I have read the Tymar DIY is a cheap and easy instal. So I tried it, I bought the filter on-line for 24 bucks and found a piece of 4 inch exaust for 22 bucks at Fleet supply localy and I had a local muffler shop cut the pipe for me (Freebie) The install took 20 to 30 min tops and I was back on the road. I still need to fabricate a bracket to hold the filter but for now its zip tied in place. My truck (96 F250 crew, short bed) runs smoother and the turbo whistle is now noticable. I didn't think I gained any power at first so I hooked up my camper (around 8,000lbs bumper tow) and went for a drive. WOW! did that made a differance, my truck must have realy starving for air. At city speeds the truck has no problem keeping up with traffic and once I get to hwy speeds the camper is not noticable, if you don't count the fact that I can't see around it. Today I drove my hour commute to work. Once I got in traffic I could tell a difference. The truck is much more responsive. I will know if there is any MPG improvement by the end of next week.
I feel the need to warn any other newbies Turbo Whisle is an addicting sound and your right foot [I]will[I] gain weight after the install. I'm hoping these are temporary ailments or I will not gain any MPG improvement.
Thanks for all the helpfull tips on this forum I think I will tackle a turbo back exaust next.

Glad to hear you like it. But just so you know you might not see much improvement in mileage the first week or so. But thats only because your probably having too much fun listening to the louder whistle and using the go pedal a little harder to play with the new sound and power

I was impressed with this DIY mod. Unlike the cold air kits they sell for gassers this actually makes a seat of the pants difference.

No need for any bracket to hold the filter and no need to make a box, under hood temps at 20+mph are within a degree or two of ambient air temps.

I do have a writeup though in the tech files that will show a box for it.


Your mpg will go DOWN for a while before you get used to that turbo whistle LOL
