which air intake????

I have a stock 97 f 250 with a edge programmer, 65hp I think.
I need a new air intake, the previous one is ****ty. Is it ok to use the k&n style filters on deisels or do they draw too much air?? Any help would be great,
Plus, do the cold air intakes make much difference over the non sealed air boxes?
thanks!

get rid of the K&N.... it allows too large of particle to get thru and dust your turbo...

i would do a TYMAR intake fom Dale at TYMAR Performance for a bolt on kit or make a DIY intake out ofa Donaldson Filter and a 4" 45* elbow and some hardware.. all up to you if you wana build it or bolt it on

how much are the tymar kits?
also with the donaldson setups, are you running the factory air intake, because all I see listed are the canister type filters.
thanks again.

the tymar intake are donaldson filters in a complete kit with all the brackets and clams....around $150 for the set up but call Dale for a real quote

but you can buy all the parts yourself if you wana find them all and piece them together.

My truck came with an AFE Stage II. No complaints, it does what it's supposed to do.
If I had to replace the stock one with something, I'd go for the Tymar only because it's cheaper than the AFE.

I've only had my Tymar on for about a month, but so far I love it. Definitely hear my turbo whistle now. I'm hoping to see a mileage improvement, but I don't know if it will be noticeable.

Got it directly from Dale at Tymar.
