DIY INTAKE MOD

I am considering an intake mod simply because its time to change my filter and the filter box is damaged on my early 99 f250. I am curious though, the suggestions have all pointed to a piece of 4"ss tube and NAPA filter 6637. My question is how come no one mentions the use K&N as an option?

If you use a K+N, you may as well take a sand blaster to your turbo, they are terrible at filtering out the smaller dust and dirt. I think the best a/f filter is the afe filters, they flow good, and catch MOST of the smaller stuff.

The K&N drop-in's are the worst because of their design coupled with the factory flawed air intake. The FIPK setup isn't as bad but it's not as good as a Tymar, AFE, or AIS.

The mod is simple... there is a picture write-up in the tech files I made for you...

I put the napa filter in mine but didn't need the 4" pipe. Just worked the stock intake over the new filter and reused the clamp.

I know how hard it is to put the TN Tube on the turbo it's designed for... I was imagining having to put it on a BIGGER inlet then it was designed for.

I'll take this into consideration and see if I can pull it off with Katie's truck since I don't have a 4" peice for her yet... I lost it
