UMP Air Intake

I just bought a 97 7.3 and it has a UMP air intake, has anyone heard of this brand or know if this is comparable to an AFE stage 2? Thanks guys!

The UMP intake I have seen are more of a work truck realiability / filter cost upgrade than a performance part. As I recall they are a metal housing made to fit a Donaldson industrial grade filter element.

$429 on their website! Very heavy duty and well made. Probably 10% of us need that beyond the Tymar in extreme gravel roads and constuction type environments.

So if they are meant for a Donaldson/Baldwin/Tymar type filter element, then they are pretty cool I think
It keeps the filter suspended and allows it to take air in from all sides. Keeps the factory restriction gauge, intake air temp sensor. I just wish it took air in from the fender vent too.

The fender side does open up to access the element. I suppose with a cone shaped element, or with a closed side element you could just leave the side off and let it pull in even more?

On the website there are two versions, one for chipped trucks than includes a louvered cover.

Since the whole air intake temp question has been measured and proven to be a non issue, there is a huge price gap between this and a Tymar. If I knew what element was in it I could tell if the POTENTIAL for more air flow is there. It probably has the radial seal series of filter element. Inlet and outlet design has as much to do with flow as the element itself

Mustang it would be interesting if you posted up the part# brand and diameter and length of the element please.

I know the IAT sensor and restriction gauge doesn't matter but I think it's nice to have it in a set location other than hanging there
