Ford AIS Severe Duty Filter Kit

Hey, anybody running one of these?
How long and how's the filtration and air flow?
I'm thinking of putting one on and would like
to hear what you have to say.
Average use, looking for very good filtration and flow.
I would like to see where the inlet is exactly before
ZooDad mod. (I'm getting a little shaky just thinking about
taking a drill and saw to the front end of the truck!)
I got an idea for a trap door for the ZooDad I want to try out.
Been researchin.
Let me hear what you all have to say about this intake kit.

Jon has one and will maybe see this and chime in in a few. But they are really nice. Pretty much the 6.0 intake for the 7.3s. Great filtration, I belive they are on a 60k mile replacement. Moves the battery box, and gives ya a ram air type hose/tube to direct airflow. Would def work better with the Zoodad done. They are sharp intakes.

You say it gives you more of a ram air type dirct air flow?
I've tried to look at pictures of it and it seems be almost the same
size as stock and kinda runs back in the same manner.
Seem to start almost at the same place behind the grill also.
Wonder why the inlet tube isn't MUCH larger to "catch" more air?

Also, Why is the Ford filter BLUE and the
Amsoil filter White?
Are they both the same Nano filter technology made by Donaldson?

No...it doesnt give "more" ram air type flow...unless your truck is an early 99....if you want more available air there is a fender sleeve available for it as well so you can draw out of the fender too.....

I dont know why they colored the elements differently, but yes...both manufacturers are using donaldson filters.....

the stock airboxes drew out of the front too logan...it was just part of the battery tray so it wasnt as obvious as the tube coming out of the AIS filterbox.....

Ram air effect.

The stock setup on my truck left the air inlet about 2 inches behind the zoodad. With my ais it is right up against it so in theory it seals the gap and makes a ram air type setup.
