I did a lot of research on this after reading that the k&n in the factory box was letting dirt through on a lot of peoples trucks, The cheapest best option I found was this
http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/94...87-6637-diy-intake-filter-install-change.html
I just went down to napa bought the 6637 filter, went into ace got a plastic pipe fitting that slipped into the opening, pulled the stock box out and popped it in, I am getting 2-3 Lbs more boost with it works very well.

Wells Banks talk me into getting that system I posted - will see how it goes ;-)

Banks Power Ram-Air Intake System
  • Extensively tested & validated
  • Enclosed housing keeps out hot, power-robbing engine air
  • Inhales cooler outside air for more power & MPG
  • Giant filter maximizes high-flow filtration
  • Helps engine run cooler
  • Accommodates engine movement
  • Prevents component damage
  • Extends service life and requires fewer cleanings
  • 5-year Limited Warranty (filter: Lifetime Limited Warranty)
  • Gain up to +16 hp and +32 lb-ft
  • Easy filter access for monitoring and cleaning.
  • OILED Air Filter Element
  • Emissions compliant: CARB EO D-161-102



The problem with the open air filter is that your getting hot air from the motor and oil crap on it

Ya, I thought that too but so far so good, along with the hundred of other guys on the forums, I'm buying banks for the jeep because of the dirt and crap that is sees, its in a box like that one. Should be bueno for you. Do you have the boost tubes installed yet?

So we finish installing all the parts Thursday Morning and we fire it up,

Truck runs like caca very rough idle, like if out of time or air leak or vacuum leak dang so we take it apart again and go thru all the parts again, we started it and again caca. got piss off and work on my RZR lights.

Later that day Thursday afternoon my nephew told me he started it and same thing, he took it for a test drive and told me it started getting better he came home and it was running better, after he had dinner he started it again and it ran like caca for 5 min and then ran better.

he let it cool down try it again later and it ran like caca for 2 min and better. Friday he started it and no problem he took it around the block anf he told me it ran like a champ.

On Saturday I went to turn it on and WOW it idle like a new Truck, I did not take it on a test drive, he going to take it to the shop tomorrow and connect the big computer reader to see if it has any code. Hope all come out good.

Has anyone had or seen this type of performances that the truck fix it self ?

I had my banks chip go bad and it would not start, then when it started it would idle like caca but once running for a bit would run good. But nothing like that bogging issue when it was running.
