Air filter question?

Just installed a fram tough guard TGA9400 stock replacement air filter in my truck and was wondering if i needed to oil it? It says on the box that it comes pre-oiled, but I was wondering if that was enough. Thanks

^x2 agreed

But for the time being, I wouldn't add oil. It probably just has some kind of light haze on it to keep it somewhat resistant to moisture or storage, so it should be good to go.

Yup, Fram is GARBAGE. (Oil OR Air)

DIY is easy enough to do, and will save you a TON of money in the long run!

Just to elaborate on this,..I just did the 6637 DIY on my sons 2000 7.3 last night, and it had been refiltered with Fram's for a long time from the prievious owner...we took that thing apart, and looked down the intake tube to the turbo wheel, and I was shocked at how much dirt was in there...all the way to the turbo intake aluminum housing!!..needless to say, we unbolted everything and gave it a good scrub down inside and out. The turbo hand spun just fine, no binding or odd movement, just a little debris on the fins which I wiped down. Got everything back together with the 6637 and I am going to inspect the intake after about 1000 miles or so to keep tabs on how good its working....but to sum it up...Fram is junk.
