Air Filter Question on the 7.3L

I just purchased a 2002 F250 (new to diesels). Anyway, I noticed that my stock intake has that little air flow gauge attached to the air box. That gauge has an electrical connector, but I noticed that mine does not have anything plugged into it. I only briefly looked to see if I had an electrical cable laying around, but I did not see any. Is there supposed to be something plugged into that on the 7.3L? If so, what does it exactly do?

i believe you are talking about the air restriction monitor. it is supposed to light up on the dash if it senses too much air restriction. i dont have anything connected to the minder on my 99....

How do you like that S&B intake? It is the one with the enclosed box, correct? I was thinking of ordering that kit, and would like to hear some feedback.

I have it, it works great... filters amazing and sounds good under the hood.
