Air Filter/Intake Unit

On my 97 f-350 7.3L, is the factory stock air intake system fine for general use? Or, should I invest in a high performance aftermarket? Also, I missed out on the recall they had some years back on the filter houseing cover, something with the screw down bolts or something, anyway, that recall has ended,,,where can I get the "recall" parts now??? Thanks.

The factory stock intake is better than the aftermarket ones.. There are many threads on the subject.. It doesn't have any benefits to replace it..

As far as the recall, did you check out the dealer to see if you are not eligible??

They should be able to get the parts unless they are discontinued..

Also check out the TSB and Recalls for your vehicle at the top menu under Tech Tools

Ok, thanks! I'll keep the factory air filter intake unit, and I'll look at that recall. That recall has expired, can I still get the parts? I guess I have to check with the dealer.
