Air Intake Heater Relay?

Did the air intake heater come on all F-350 7.3L's?

I just put in the stancor GP relay and while looking at pictures on the write I noticed it was supposed to be located right next to the AIH relay. When i went out to my truck ( '99 f350) I noticed I didn't have this relay . . . .

Did a previous owner remove the AIH system or did it come from the factory this way?

Is the heater element itself gone on the intake? Some will put a plug in this spot and some use to get their boost reading for the gauge. I suppose someone could have removed the element and the relay that powers it. The only other thing I can think of is you have a CA truck which has a glow plug controller and not a relay and what you replaced was the AIH relay and not the GPR.

I'm pretty sure it was the GP relay I replaced, all the wiring was correct for the GP's.
It is probably a early '99 then.

Thanks!

That could be true as well, forgot this forum groups the early 99's in with the later.
