just bought 02 F250 19,000 miles

Just bought my Dads 02 Superduty. It's got the 7.3 in it. Was going to put the K&N cone intake on it but am reading lots of bad things. Do I leave the stock filter in or what do you guys suggest? Last week I put the leveling kit on it, 33 inch tires, tossed out the muffler, (no cat on this one), and tinted the windows. Can't wait to pull the toy hauler this spring. Last truck was a 96 F250 with the 460. Any ideas or help on what to do or not to do would greatly be appreciated.

First off, congrats on the truck! I haven't owned any vehicle with less than 200k miles in the last dozen years... what's it like?

Secondly,



As for the intake, yes K&N has a bad rep, passes too much crap and can dust your turbo etc. The stock air box also has a bad rap. There are aftermarket cold air intakes out there, but for $$$. Here's a DIY option that a lot of guys do for about $60-70:

Congrats on the new ride....I would do one of the DIY intake filter changes, easy relatively inexpensive, search for the link, there are a few different choices of brands of filters which all appear to be the same...NAPA, Baldwin, etc. Fred

Thanks for the DIY info....

Thanks for the DIY intake information. I'll look into it. My Pops bought the truck new 11/02 and drove it very little. He's retired and put most of his miles on his Jeep Cherokee. He had the oil changes done by Ford every 3000 miles, sometimes sooner. Once I figure out how to put pics on I'll do so. The truck had a blowout due to tires just sitting. It tore up the pass rear quarter. I had it fixed immeadiatly & sprayed LineX on the rockers & in the bed. I think it looks real sharp. Thanks for the replies and help. BGJ
