6637 is kinda the go to CAI for the 7.3. Because its cheap and easy. Most guys just do it themselves, no need for a kit. From what i hear is the AFE is actually a bit better but its not enough to warrant the added cost of the AFE. Plus replacement 6637s are only ~$25

6637 works well enough and low enough in cost. and i never covered mine too and over used it. still worked like a champ.

Thats kind of what I figured, seems like everyone is kind of talking the 6637 up in my mind, and for the cost you cant's hardly go wrong... Might be going that way. Also, on this link http://www.riffraffdiesel.com/mm5/RE...structions.pdf it talks about a re-route mod on step 3? Is that something to consider or is it part of the kit?? Or dont worry about it?

I just installed the 6637. I think I paid a total of $50 for filter, 4" pipe and shipping. It is super easy to install.

But it isn't a CAI.

I am going to be getting a water repellant outerwear for my filter soon, just to be safe and make the filter last longer. plus I did the zoodad mod so the outerwear should stop any water that might come through my zoodad from reaching my engine.
