I can't say which one is right for the stock filter, but it's well worth your while to do the DIY intake/6637 air filter mod... much better filter, and no more risk of the stock filter and housing letting dirt into the motor. This is the first thing I do to my 7.3 PSD's, and highly recomend it... I would not waste the money buying a stock filter.

air filters?

I went with the DIY 6637 and the filter was $38 and the clamp was $4, i used a 4" x 4" piece of exhaust pipe leftover from when i put exhaust system on,a lot better air intake and a cheap cost!
