Air filter

I have an airaid cold air intake on my truck. I'm looking to change out the reusable filter for a paper filter. Is there a filter out there that will adapt to an 6 ID opening.

Re: Air filter

Why? AirAid is a good brand?

and not sure, the 6637 is 4" IIRC.

1995 F250 ECLB - 6637, 3" MBRP downpipe, Autometer Pro Comp Ultra lite Boost pyro and trans gauges, Built trans, Proline FlatBed, and much more to come!

Re: Air filter

Just heard that running a paper filter would be better for the truck

Re: Air filter

You heard right, recharges arnt real good for turbo applications, I had an afe before I switched, get you a 4" pipe and pick yourself up a 6637 variant, I've run a couple of wix filters but I think ill go the Donaldson route next for the hydrophobic aspect since I moved to Florida. A 6" filter housing isn't doing you much good since you only have like a 2.5" turbo inlet, 4" seems to be about perfect though.

02 250 CCLB, 6 spd, PHP Phoenix, ISSPROs, AFE/6637 intake, 4" DE straight exhaust, WW, coolant filter with ELC, AIH delete, ebpv delete, bellowed uppies, 4" on 35's and racelines

Re: Air filter

I could just run that right through the cold air intake wall that separates the battery and filter from the motor compartment. Right

Re: Air filter

he problem with heat shields and routing air through intake boxes is that whenever you direct air flow, you increase restriction. Low restriction is the goal, so using a filter that has the ability to flow large masses of air and then enclosing it in a box yields very poor results. Heat shields do literally nothing. Air flow under the hood is dynamic and not static. It is moving all the time. Hot air will move right around a heat shield at the same temperature and be ingested and the only thing you have caused is turbulence.


Get a Tymar intake of make a correctly built clone.

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

Dealer for: Full Force, Tymar, BTS, Icon, Pure Performance, TW tunes, just to name a few.
