K&N drop in?

Hello all,
I'm the new guy, and new to diesel trucks. I have a 2000 F450 7.3 for my work truck that came with the k&n drop in. I always thaught this was a good thing, but now I have read they have caused "dusting" and turbo problems. What is the real scoop.

Thanks,

Ridgetop

That seems to be the case as they don't seal real well with the stock intake box. Your better off with an oem filter vs the drop in.

You should look at putting in a diy intake. Much better filtering and flows more air then the stock filter setup DIY Intake

Had a K&N drop-in when I bought my truck. Immediately switched to a stock drop-in and now I have a DIY Tymar using a Baldwin PA2818 filter and a short section of 4" S.S. exhaust pipe. It is awesome. Opens it up! Try it. I'll trade my drop-in K&N for your open filter if you decide you don't want it.

K&N

Got a K&N cold box for my 7.3L. Works great! Never tried a K&N drop in though.
