Cold Air Intakes

i have a 2000 f250 7.3 powerstroke. im pretty new with doing performance improvemetns and i just put a 4" exhaust on and im lookin to put on a cold air intake. i was looking at K&N and but heard their filters tend to let dust and sand into the turbo, i was also thinking about a stage 2 AFE intake. does anybody have good info on AFE intakes? im aslo open to other suggestions.

Re: Cold Air Intakes

Get a piece of 4" long 4" exhaust pipe and a 6637 filer from napa..... Total cost of air intake is around $60.....


Done.

Re: Cold Air Intakes

Is this done with a stock intake tube? Also with the 4" exhaust, do you have to put a seal around the filter and the pipe to seal it up?

Yes to the stock intake tube and no to a seal. The piece of exhaust pipe goes inside the stock tube and inside the filter.


I forgot to include a 4" hose clamp.... So add another $3

Works great. Here is mine with a sock on it. You have to kill the stock air box to get it in there.

Re: Cold Air Intakes

As stated above, the 6637 intake is an inexpensive way to go and it is a great setup.

You can also go with pre-built intake kits such as AFE, S&B, and Airaid. They will all work good too.

Pretty much anything other than stock is an upgrade.
