Air box question

I just bought a 99 F250 7.3 and the original air box is gone and has been replaced with a cone filter. Is it better to have the original air box or is this cone a better way to go? Plus whoever did this also sorta rigged up the box as you can see the part that is taped.

Thanks!!

go to napa and get part number 6637 filter and replace that cone filter... the new filter will be less than 30 bucks. its a monster it filters great and has more size to allow for more air. not to mention that cone probably dont filter all that well.

Thanks! Should I leave that homemade box thing? It only has two sides.

Thanks!

i never figured why cause you can now suck air from the bottom even so when moving the lower air dam flows air up through the bottom all around the filter so the zoodad mod just seems like extra work to me.
