Finally!!!

Finally! What seemed like years and years and years of searching I found a truck. I just signed the papers on it last night. It's a 1999 f350 XLT ecsb with 126k miles with a plow. The only mod that I can see is it has a complete k&n intake which I will be getting rid of ASAP Other than that I have all my to do mods listed in my sig. The only question I have is I read the article on how to tell the difference in early 99 and 99-03 trucks. And I'm pretty sure the build date is 12/98 but it has the cruise light, powerstroke emblem on the door and the intake draws air thru the grille not the wheel well. So do I have some type of hybrid truck or what?

4 bolts or 5 bolts on the compressor housing?
thats a easy way to tell.
early has 4 bolts, late 99 has 5 bolts.
is their an Air intake heater in the manfiold? if yes late 99

oh and instead of getting rid of the k&n intake. take the k&n filter off and put a 6637 filter on.
the 6637 filters much better and flows plenty

Alright I'll have to do that, what are the measurements for early 99 and 99-03? Or where can I find the measurements at?

Okay I'll take a look at see if it has 4 or 5 bolts and I'll check on the intake heater too. And yeah I guess I could do the 6637 filter, are there any advantages to doing the 6637 over a, say, afe intake or vice versa?
Thanks for the tips guys!
