Welcome to the site. Good luck with the truck. May I suggest find a different air filter. Please don't use a K&N.

I'm no expert, but have been on the site for a while & I hear nothing but bad news about K&N for the PSD. I hear good stuff about Air-raid & Tymar. Maybe some other good ones, too,

Ok not to hi-jack a welcome aboard thread but this is for the new guy.

Please take a look at this link. It is a picture of a K&N air filter. I had in my truck. Those black spots are not bugs, it is not dirt. Those are holes the size of dimes caused by sand getting sucked through the filter. One weekend at the sand dunes. This is why I say find a different filter for your truck please.

Welcome to Powerstroke.org

I second the advise not to use the K&N...they make excellent filters most of the time, but I've heard too many horror stories about their diesel products to recomend them.

I will agree with the K&N stuff. And the Banks, is good but way over priced. You can get the same or much better if you go with other power adder companies. For the 6.0s, the SCT is the only way to go, and I think there are many people that would agree with me. Great to have ya.

K&N response

Thanks, all, for the heads up on the K&N. I put almost 100K on my 7.3, all with the same K&N and had no problems caused by air. Understand, though, my trucks seldom ever are off road.

I have been reading about the tyvar (SP) filter. Can someone send me more info? Is this the stock Motorcraft replacement?

Also, what is this "doodad" that everyone is talking about? Any problems with moisture?
