You should can that K&N too. they let a lot of dirt go through, and end up trashing your turbo compressor wheel. AFE makes a good filter, and the DIY air filter deals, let you choose a Napa brand that everybody likes. Just my 2 cents

zach, I bought a real nice ISSPRO set with pod (all made in the USA), for under $300 shipped from Ken's Performance Solutions. Give him a call, he'll be glad to give you advice and help. 707-580-6782 Oh, I also bought an AFE filter mentioned earlier, a can of paint and a can of primer for the pod, to match the interior, total was about 350 shipped.

Get a different one, or use that money towards a cold air intake. Don't take chances of sucking dirt into the engine.

An EGT gauge is cheap insurance on your engine. This is the first truck I have had that I put one on and all future ones will have one! A gauge is much cheaper then a cooked turbo.

for the cracked air box, replace it with the napa 6637 filter it eliminates the the air box and flows more air and sounds good too, tons of threads on here about how to do it! its really easy and cheap
