AFE air filter great news

I installed the AFE Direct Fit Filter Pro Guard 7. Great move its a direct replacement. 42% better flow says AFE. I got more boost better throttle response with a lot less lag. I use one with my H2 it was good but not like this one. Boost up to 22-23 lbs on the floor. I get about 2-3 lbs more at lower acceleration. And so far about 3/4 mpg better. I run a CTS monitor.

One question what is the smaller filter there for? My stock one look new, no dirt at all. There is a large block of foam before it.

I can see why driving in heavy snow could cause problems. The opening of the air box is forward. So as snow comes in the grill the air box opening sucks it in. In snow I would not get on it. Your just asking to suck water in the intake. Kinda funny Ford would do this. And they know it, its in the manual.

How long have you been running it?
I kinda want to see someone do a "safari" version of one of these new trucks. roof rack and snorkle. think it would look pretty sweet and would eliminate the snow packing in the intake also.

Yep just ordered it. Big fan of drop in's over total replacements. Nothing wrong with the factory location and tubing. And metal just add heat to the air after heat soaking. Hopefully I'll see an improvement. Especially while towing.
