Do they make this yet??

Want a Donaldson Power-Core (AIS) type air filter for Tymar set-up . After several days of reading posts on this site (and others), I came to the conclusion that great filtering can only be obtained at the expense of restricted air-flow. Honestly, I don't know what "good-enough" is for filtering, so I want the best. I would be interested in trying to make room for dual filters if they filtered as well as AIS type filter.

I don't know of one that will fit the tymar. The tymar filter actually filters quite well and they are fairly cheap. Are you not satisfied with the tymar. Here is probobly the cheapest price on the ford ais that might be the way to go. Here is a link scroll down the page its probobly better then half way down. Powerstrokeshop.com

Truck was stock when I bought it used. Still is. There is so much information and mis-information on the net, its confusing. I was going to install an AIS for its filtering capability. But I'm impressed with the simplicity of the Tymar set-up & the increase in air-flow. I want my cake and eat it too. Have a slide-in camper and don't tow heavy loads. I'm not a go-fast guy - 65 mph w/o camper. The AIS may be great for my application. If I knew its restriction was no worse that the stock filter, that's the way I would go . Thanks.

No the AIS is actually probobly the best for filtering and it compares flow wise to a tymar probobly not quite as many cfm's. Certainly better the the stock. Sound like it will be more than adequite for your application

Not Necessarily, there are only 2 ways to improve airflow, Bigger holes in your filter (K&N) and more filter area (tymar). The DIY tymar setup has at least 3 times the filter area of the stock 7.3 filter with the same quality of filtration. And for $36 it cant be beat!
