Air Filter housing for 2001 E350 with 7.3L.

I just got a 2001 E350 with the 7.3L engine. I had a Ford dealer check out the van before I bought it just to make sure it did not have any major problems. They let me know that the top of the air box is broken. I am not driving the van until I get it fixed. But I have been reading about the upgraded filter thats available for the F350, the AFE I think. I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a kit like this for the E350, and who is offering it?
I might as well get it because I have to get a new air box anyway.
I drove diesels in the military but never owned one until now.
Thanks for all your help everyone!!!!

The whole assembly.
Ford will not sell just the top of the housing, So I figure if I have to buy the whole thing, it might as well be an upgraded one.

Just get one of the 6637 filter kits. Makes the filter easy to replace and that way you never have to worry about the box sealing.

And you bought the truck? The broken lid could have allowed a lot of dirt to enter your intake and dirt is death to a diesel!! I hope it wasn't broke for long!! I would look at the Ford AIS, not sure if they make one for the vans though. If not I would look at the AFE Stage II, UOA reports show they filter fairly well, I am spoiled with my AIS and reports below 5 on Silcon.

I bet the dealer would have told him that the turbo was bad if that was the issue. Damaged turbo from the dirt or sand would me a bad or posible damaged motor.

People said they got it on just needed an elbow. I don't have a van but I do know people love that filter.

Yea, I know about the dirt danger for a diesel, thanks though I appreciate the concern.
The dealer I bought it from said his mechanic broke it. He had to drill him, I guess, After I questioned it myself. They replaced the alternator and it got broke during the replacement process. That was something else I had the dealer check to make sure it was done correctly. Like I said I drove several diesel powered vehicles in the military.

Thanks everyone for your replies, I will check into the options you have mentioned so far.
If anyone else has any suggestions I would appreciate it. I want to drive this ASAP, but can't until fixed.

Thanks again.

After doing some research, I am going to try and find away to make the AIS work. I need to do some measuring. I read some where that some other guy moved his battery and fit in there, I don't know about that yet. I will keep you all posted. Like I said I need to do some measuring and put those engineering skills to use.
NCHornet do you have any measurements of the AIS housing and tubes????
