As a matter of fact I have been deeper inside last year I pulled the turbo and changed the pedestal o rings and everything looked new matter of fact while I had it off a had a diesel shop check the turbo just to see while I had it out if I needed to rebuild it. We actually run a k an n on our tug boats and have been running them for ten years now and I am the port captian of our boats I do all the matinance and mechanic work and I have yet to see a bad turbo but to each his own I tend to be very meticulous about my truck I change the oil once a month and the tranny fluid every third oil change and clean the filter every month but I do believe in the wrong hands and environment dusting can happen

Do your tug boats deal with dust and dirt all the time? And spectre is worse than k&n there is a reason they are cheaper. But whatever I guess you are the expert on them since you're the one that wasted money on it, hell what do i know about a 7.3 or any diesel for that matter.

I just put a 6637 filter in place of the old spectre that came on my truck. And the 6637 clearly flows more.. Truck dosnt smoke when I floor it in o/d any more and the turbo spools a lot quicker.. But you can't hear the turbo as well.

My 00 F350 had a Spectre filter on it when I bought it. No intake kit, just the filter and It was really dirty. 11 days ago I bought the full kit (if only I had known better) and installed it. Yesterday, after only 10 days of running with it, the rubber part of the filter that clamps onto the intake tube disintegrated and was sucked into my turbo. I don't have to tell anyone what happened at that point. My truck is no sitting at a diesel repair shop with a $2300 estimate for repairs and the battle has begun to make Spectre pays for these damages caused by their faulty product. The bigger battle will be getting the claim resolved quickly because every day my truck is down I lose $1000 in income and the bills don't get paid when the truck is parked.
