Air filter

I have a early 99 f250 that the air box is cracked and needs to be replaced.
I've been reading and have found several to be the "best" so I'm looking for some opinions. What I have found is S&B, AIS, AFE, & Tymar all the be the "BEST there is".
Rate them for me.
thanks

To be honest, i removed mine complety. I did the crank case vent mod. and built my own intake out of PVC pipe. and just use a huge filter from advanced.

the truck seems to be running better because of all the air that it can get. But im going to follow this to see what other people say.

also if you have not done your crank case vent mod you really need to do it because your turbo right now is sucking oil from the crank case.

Guys here would all agree that stock air filter is best unless you're heavily modding your rig. Was looking into the k&n till I read that stock is best. So still got stock.

All 5 of the 7.3's I am responsible for maintaining have DIY intake/6637 filters. Cheap easy effective.

Riffraff Diesel 6637 Filter Kit - Riffraff Diesel Performance with the Early99 option...other wise the 6637 is a pain to find the correct 45 Deg tube

I bought the banks ram air intake setup. Not real sure if it made much of a difference over stock setup though. It is however a nice thick blowmolded housing that seems like it would be hard to destroy.

Ram air doesn't do much on a turbo engine
