Can anyone help me identify this intake?

Hey everyone, new member here with first post. Just bought my first diesel a 2002 F-250 with a 7.3. Previous owners have done a few changes and I am trying to determine what intake set up is on here. Definitely think the intake tube is K&N but this doesn't look like any K&N filter I have ever seen? Can anyone confirm what this is or is not?

Can anyone help me identify this intake?-imag0378.jpg

Whatever it is, do yourself a favor and take that thing OFF your truck

There are no "oiled gauze" filters that do a proper job keeping dirt out of your engine (Especially a Diesel!) and the longer it's on there the more damage you're doing....

Take it off, get a 6637 filter from napa. Probably have to take off the heat shield, and something to look into is deleting that ugly foil on your driver side ic tube.

I replaced my father's K&M with a 6637 and IIRC the heat shield did come off but it is IMHO a much easier filter to deal with/maintain and excellent filtration. No Ford/Donaldson AIS...but very good.

To the OP that is a dried up K&N...oil it properly or get it off.

What he said lol
IF its a k and n it will say on the end of the filter itself, usually a oiled kn will be bright red. so maybe you have a different filter? or an un-oiled filter lol
either way ditch it and get something else.

Thanks for the replies guys! Pulled it all off a bit ago to check turbo wheel see its condition and it looks great. No nicks, scratches or anything. Inside the intake tube was also clean no grit or dust. In the process I figured out the filter is an AEM Dryflow. If I want to change and go the AIS system what kind of changes would I see to performance? Would the AIS system bolt right up the K&N intake tube on it now?

I think the AIS is a Great choice, it will actually out-flow what's there now but I think you might have to find that stock tube...

As for actual performance,,, anybody who tells themselves they can "feel" an improvement from their new air filter is just kidding themselves anyway
