I love my AFE Stage II. You can really hear it sucking in air and the turbo definitely livened up a bit. They have one of the highest hp and tq increases that I saw anyway, with some mods. If I did it again I would probably get a Tymar because it's a lot cheaper I'm pretty sure. I'm sure someone else will chime in about those ones cause I don't know much.

I got an S&B Cold Air Intake 75-5028D. I wasn't sure what it would do to the 7.3l. After install I got 50 more miles per tank, the truck will MOVE when you floor it, you can feel a boost in power and another thing this intake does I have heard no one else mention. If I back off the gas I can hear a psssshhh sound. Never heard it before till i put this on

Whole kit took about 1.5 hours to install. I couldn't not believe how restricted my stock air filter was. I love my Ford but damn they could have shown a little more love with some air coming to the turbo!

Diy AFE big boost same size as tymar just cleanable and more expensive $80 is what I paid whatever you decide to go with get an Outerwear or some type of cover keeps all the bugs and crap out of the filter and extends the life of the filter. Just my opinion.
