K&N Kit on early 99

Does anyone know if the K&N Filtercharge Kit for the late 99 will fit an early 99?

Man the only thing I found on that says it will fit "7.3L Powerstroke, manufactured after 12-7-98".

If that helps.

I bought this truck new in June 1998 and have installed 3 compressor wheels due to junk getting past the stock air cleaner. I've got to do something about this once and for all.

I've seen some custom solutions but I simply don't have time to fabricate something. I was hoping to find a bolt on solution.

I called K&N and they didn't think it would work but I know there is a ton of knowledge on this site so I was hoping someone knew or had another solution.

Looking forward to hearing.

btw... my I love my early 99!!! 225,000 miles and counting

DO NOT< and I repeat DO NOT get a K&N filter for your truck. Get a AFE, S&B, Ford AIS, or similar intake. The K&N lets too much dust by to the engine and can cause the turbo to be damaged along with scoring on the cylinder walls by the dust it lets through.

Smile Napa conversion

I have an early 99 and mine had the drop in KN filter. I wasn't good. I went with the Napa filter and a short piece of pipe and 1 extra clamp. Just take your factory box out and the new filter will just lay in there just fine. If I remember the total cost was around $35.00 with about 30 min. of install time.At least you will know the dirt is not going to get in. The truck will run better. There has been a lot of posts on this and it shouldn't be hard to get more details if you need them and also the filter number. I can't remember the number off hand .It is just a round one piece and they work really well. Let me know if you have trouble getting the number and I will look it up and post it. Good luck.
