The filter end is not secured. As you can see in the photo, I had to unbolt the turbo inlet pipe from the engine. I will be making spacers and using longer bolts to reattach it. Even without it, the assembly hardly moves at all. You will need a silicone coupler because the 45* elbow doesn't line up exactly.

Wix filter #56637 or NAPA Gold #6637.

Home Depot. Any big-box store like Lowes or Menards should have it. It's foam insulated foil wrap with an adhesive backing. I also purchased some regular non-foam, aluminum tape. Once you get the foil-foam wrap on, you can wrap the entire elbow with the foil tape to cover the gaps.

My 2000 didn't have an airflow sensor, just the air temp sensor. I zip-tied the sensor right next to the filter.

Thanks for all the good words. I've been building drag cars for 20+ years, but this diesel stuff is new to me. I don't think I can go back to a gas truck now. I'M HOOKED!!!!
