No bubbles burst here , been both routes on 3 superduty's. With my current set-up the K&N was already on there and IMO the "set-up" looks better than the 6637 mod. As far as keeping it as a heat shield i totally agree , not doing much. So why not use a cleanable Amsoil filter , that bolts into an existing set-up , instead of hacking the compartment up more to fit in a $40 filter that needs replacing ? The 6637 is great if your modding on a budget , but you will never convince me it looks " nice " tucked under the hood. Not attacking in any way as i said , i have run the 6637 on other trucks and it worked great. To the OP , to answer your ? again the 6637 will not fit with the current set-up. If you remove it , sure , it works great , if you want to keep your current setup and change the filter to something that also works and is not a K&N then get the EAAU-4095. Or keep the K&N , lots of bad juju floating the internet but i have seen no actual data. I had the K&N on the new motor for 30k and pulled probably 10 times to check the intake tube and never once in wiping inside with a clean white cloth did i see the first hint of dust but decided to jump on the bandwagon as a new filter seemed like cheaper insurance.
Also the k&N on the tahoe kept throwing codes for the MAF sensor , clean the sensor and code gone , drive it again and code back. Same thing over and over until i went back to stock filter and no more problems. That alone is what caused me to pull away from the k&N all together.
i currently have the k&n "set up" on my truck that was installed by the po. ive worried about the so called "dusting" issue also ever since i bought the truck mainly because of the horror storys. i have taken mine apart and found some oil residue due to mainly an over oiled filter im sure. The only reason i havent changed it is because the 6637 is not the most pleasing to the eye and having to buy one more $40 filter to service. im glad you brought up the amsoil filter and will be buying it this week.
