'06 Air Filter

Hey Fellas,
I have a '06 6.0 and I was checking under the hood the other day and noticed the airfilter housing clamps tighter on the left side than the other. This is the factory aircleaner and I'm talking about the rear of the filter not the front. The front really wouldnt matter but if there is a leak on the rear the engine can suck in a little dust. Anyone else experience or fix this problem. What you think Marc? Oh yeah Marc, that friggin rear main is leaking again. Thanks to the outstanding local dealership. Think I will go to another this time.

Dont worry about the air filter, a lot of them look distorted, there is actually a TSB about it stating it is fine. If you take the lid off the filter and look, you can see how it is actually sealing even though it appears as it wouldnt be....

Sorry to hear bout that rear main agian...but make sure someone looks at it well, because it is a very comonly mis diagnosed leak......

Air Filter Leak

I was under the hood just this weekend looking around and noticed the same issue on my 07. I do not like it either. I will however pull it apart to check the seal. The trouble is you would never know it was leaking until a problem developed in the turbo (eroded blading etc.). Just out of curiosity I am going to call the dealer to see what they say about it. I had considered an after market air intake to solve the problem even though the guys with the 40 lb brains say it is not you can never be to sure that the cost of replacing the part vs probability that it would cause another to fail(i.e. the turbo) was not factored in ya know??

The 6.0 intake are actually some of the best out there. Hard to beat them with an aftermarket unit. Just FYI. Spend the money on another mod that will help ya out more.
