Probably a DIY Tymar setup, as the cost is under a hundred bucks, and the labour is free, because your doing it. Theres a great guide in the 7.3 tech files by Maintain as to how its done.

Ditto on the Maintain tech file. I used his guide for mine. Parts I bought, napa filter #6637 $51.00, one 3" 45% pvc pipe at Lowes $2.88, one hose clamp for 4.5" application.$1.38. Total costs $55.26 + tx.. You might as well do the CCV mod while you are there. Very simple to do. Parts needed, 4ft. 3/4 hose. Cost 0 I used on old garden hose.

DIY Intake. Fast. Easy. Cheap. Reversible.
I used a Baldwin PA2818, 3" section of 4" SS exhaust pipe and a 4.5" clamp. Took me more than a few minutes but can be done in less than an hour.

The CCV (crank case ventilation) is a short hose going from the valve cover to the intake. The mod is simply to add a length of hose and reroute it down behind the front tire and plug the hole in the intake. This keeps engine gasses and crude and oil out of the intake and turbo and inner cooler.

My Baldwin PA2818 filter was $38 and a 4" OD PVC fitting from lowes and a couple hose clamps found laying around at work. The DIY is in my opinion the best filter system you can get and also happens to be the cheapest.

when u guys install the DIY intake what did u do with the sensor in the air box i have a 99 7.3 i just left it hangingthere by the filter but the truck doesnt seem to idle up as high whien it is cold now and it seems more slugish in the bottom end but i think it helped mid range and top end i guess i was thinking it would help the bottom end more but maybe not i was just wondring if it had any thing to do with that sensor that i just left hangin there
