any body use anything besides the 6637 filter?

I ordered the biggest filter I could find in a dry filter its a black beat raceing filter from ebay I priced up a bunch of different kits but figured I could put one together way cheaper than any I got the 4 inch aluminum 45degree angle pipe two of the nice clamps from jegs and the filter for like 75 bucks I'm going to probally route the filter into the stock air box but not run the lid or maybe I will depending on your alls thoughts. I'm going to check the pipe regularly for dust getting past the filter but I figure worse comes to worse I can swap a 6637 filter on it in like 10 seconds. The black beat raceing filter looks just like a k and n but is non oiled

6637 size will not fit in stock air box dimensions. If what you bought is similar, you'll have to cut out the factory box.

Its pretty big but not as big as the 6637 I think its 6 x 10 3/4 or somewhere near that if it doesn't fit I'll just make a new bow out of sheet metal if it looks like I'll need it

No offense intended, but why try and re invent the wheel? I wouldn't bother risking the eBay filter when the 6637 is proven safe and super cheap.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

I wouldn't bother 6637 (or other open element) if I had the experience I have now. There are no better economic options than the 6637. Ford AIS is the next best, imho. I haven't taken the leap yet, but I do know that if you take your truck off of the pavement (not dry), the 6637 does not last. AIS is simply the economic enclosed system.

Right here B085011 - 6637 - ECB DONALDSON REPLACEMENT FOR NAPA 6637 - Filter Products then a cheap 4x4 piece of pipe and your done. Like someone said no need to reinvent the wheel. If you insist on spending extra money then do the Ford AIS.

I bought a k&n filter stage 3 kit with all new piping and everything, 6 months later dusted wheel. I was pissed because I knew it would happen but I didn't believe k&n would release something that would fail, I retained the piping and bought a filter from riffraff diesel, great guys to buy from, and it's the same size as a 6637 but washable s&b filter for 80 bucks the new turbo wheel is fine since then
