Aftermarket air intake systems

Hi all
Thanks in advance for any front line info.
The vehicle is a 2008 E-350 ext cargo 6.0.L

Are there any bolt in or slight Mod kits available to replace the stock Air Intake and Filter set up.

Is it even worth doing?

Vehicle is used Daily highway and city 300+ miles per day and is
loaded across the board at any given time in a courier role.

I have seen pictures from a guy that made an intake from a "T" shaped piece of stainless steel tubing. It was about 3 or 3.5 inches. From each end of the T, he mounted a small cone filter. The long end of the T was what went into the intake tube.

I don't know how much it really helped flow.

BTW, Welcome to the 'Org.

Thanks for the welcome elibenson .
I replace the stock filter every 2 month or so and I have to think
there is a cheaper alternative for a guy willing to do the upkeep.

I'm not sure what I would do with the existing wiring beyond threading them into any DIY kit at an apparently appropriate spot.

My trucks are ambulances. They easily get 300+ miles a day also. For the effort it would take to convert all of them, and the time it would take to clean the filters and re-oil them it is just not worth it.

Most of mine are 7.3l trucks. They take 2 filters each. I replace them about every 3 oil changes. That ends up being about 15-20K miles. The 6.0 van filters are a little more expensive, but they are still not too bad. I don't plan on doing anything with mine. It's just too much bother when you have as many as I do.
