What do you mean did not like how it sealed?

Do the DIY right. Look down youre sig where it says things wanted. Save the money you would spend on bling filters and get guages.

There is no "Best" it all depends on what you are looking for. If you want the "best" filtering intake than the Ford AIS is "The Best", it will flow enough air for 400-424HP and looks totally stock under the hood. If you think, or want, more air, than you need to go with a open element filter. I myself don't care for these because of the increased noise, but out of them I would choose the AFE stageII, UOA reports that I have seen prove it does a decent job at filtering. Remember dirt is death to a diesel engine!!

Get a genuine Donaldson filter and you won't need a cover
