HELP!!!

when i bought my truck it came with a K&N Drycharger air intake. I know that these aren't good filters and they can ruin your turbo. i was wondering if it was possible to switch it out to an S&B filter without replacing the whole system.

thanks, the BANDIT

What is the size of the inlet side on the filter? If you could find a filter thats the same size I can't see why it wouldn't work.

Someone told me that if you get the dimensions that S&B can custom make the exact filter size

Just go to the S&B website and you should be able to find what you need.

Good luck

I replaced mine with a S&B. If you cant find the size you need on their web site then call them and give them the dimensions and they will give you the part number. Thats what I did!
