First off, take that K&N off!!!! Get a Airaid, AFE or the Ford air intake kit.

Keep all the fluids changed, oil,fuel,coolant,transmission, rear gear lube, replace the stock tiny arsh tranny cooler with the 6.0L cooler, your tranny will love you, get some gauges (EGT,Trans,etc....) And it also depends on how you drive the truck as too how long it will last.

Here are some on ebay

ford 6.0l transmission cooler | eBay

Tousley Ford also sells them, it's not that hard too swap out, just takes a few hours and some transmission line and some fittings too convert from 1/2"-3/8". It's a direct bolt in, the hardest part is removing all the front piece's (bumper,headlights,) and the support piece that hold the grill on the truck, ounce you get all that removed it's a breeze.

Thanx man. The 6637 filter that I found for 90 bucks I think is that with everything ? Cause I don't have stock intake tubes to use if that's what I need. Is that intake really as good as everyone says ?

6637 for $90??? Where is this advertised? It should only sell for around $30-$50 depending your location.

If you dont have the necessary pieces to make the 6637 work, you can fabricate or buy a kit here: Riffraff Diesel: RDP 6637 Filter Kit

The 6637 is wonderful. Maximum flow and quality filtration at an affordable price. I put one on last year in place of my K&N and havent looked back.

You can drop in the 6637 directly onto the end of your K&N. It fits exactly. Just take off the K&N filter, adjust the K&N tube and insert the 6637.

Not a damn thing wrong with the K&N intake kits... Same filter media as the AFE and S&B...

The issue has always been with the drop in K&N not sealing to the factory air box.
