Hey everybody my name is Justin welcome back to our BTR Garage today we’re going to
be continuing the upgrades for my 2002 Ford F250
this time we have an S&B Cold Air Intake that we’re going to be installing onto
the truck to further improve the miles per gallon and the efficiency of the
truck not only in daily driving situations but also when we are towing
so we’re gonna go ahead and open up the box check out what we’ve got inside and
start with the install
all right taking a look at what we have in the box we have what looks to be the
main filter housing very nice large plastic units what is this guy this
looks like the intake tube itself we’ve got some hose clamps and couplers
and things in here as well go ahead and leave that aside obviously we have our
massive air filter this thing comes pre oil that is an oiled filter so you’ll
want to pick up an oil and filter cleaning kits for this particular filter
I’ll put the links down in the description for all of this stuff as
well so if you’re looking to buy this kits
you can go and pick it all up in the same place and then what do we have here
looks like another piece of the intake tract while it has like a really greasy
not greasy but plastic film on the inside of it I don’t know if you can see
the glare or not but a really smooth coating on the inside that’s kind of
interesting not sure what this is yet install instructions and some other
pieces another giant gasket for part of the filter and then what is the last
piece here we have this looks like maybe the bottom of the battery tray where the
battery sits because there is a battery on that side of the truck as well so we
have all the parts out from the kit now we got to go ahead and get the OEM air
box out of there and then we can start installing the new S&B filter now before
I go ahead and get started with the video if you are installing one of these
S&B cold air intakes do follow your instructions that comes with a really
awesome set of color instructions actually that’s show you how to remove
the stock air box and install the S&B air box appropriately use this video
as a reference but always follow the manufacturer’s instructions now we’re
gonna go ahead and get started and get that stock air box out of there
now the removal of the stock airbox is pretty straightforward just follow the
instructions everything is pretty simple there is one or maybe two little things
you want to take note of if your truck has the stock electronic restriction
gauge on the intake box we’ll show you that here if you have one of those guys
on your airbox you’re going to need to relocate it to the new s and B intake
tube which is not drilled for it from the factory you can see here there’s a
little round section where you’re gonna need to drill a hole in the middle and
put a new grommet which the kit comes with in case you do have that electronic
sensor gauge so now that we have this apart we’re gonna go ahead and take that
little gauge off of there that we just talked about prep the new intake tube
and then we can start putting together the s and B air box and getting it
installed back in the truck
so we have just a couple things left to do here after getting the air box
mounted in the truck we have our little restrictor gauge that we took out
earlier we drilled the hole in the side of the intake tube down here we want to
take this and place it back through the grommet simply push it through make sure
it’s all the way in there nice and snug we’ll reconnect our little connector now
back on the backside of the air box back here you recall in the instructions
there was a little hole down on the back side down towards the bottom where we
put the intake air temperature sensor which we also took off earlier this
little bitty sensor you guys probably can’t even see it
we’re gonna go ahead and slide that thing into the grommet in the back of
the air box next we have our nifty little see-through air box cover which
goes on the top here and screws in with the provided screws
all right there we go got that cover put on looks really slick last thing we want
to do is just hook up our battery terminals and then I believe we are done
all right the intake installation is complete let’s go ahead and take a
closer look at it
now we just have one more thing left to do that is to start it up and see how it
sounds and also make sure we have no crazy leaks going on around the coupler
connecting to the turbo inlet and around the airbox itself alright we’re going to
go ahead and start the truck up see if we hear any difference with the intake
so first start is good don’t really hear much of a difference
just with the startup
now you can hear it with the engine revs you can kind of hear the sucking of the
air intake now a little bit more actually quite a bit more than before
with the OEM intake
cool well everything seems to be working at least from the inside I’m going to jump into the engine bay and just make sure we have no leaks
or anything like that going on alright so we checked for leaks everything is
good and airtight we’re gonna go ahead and take this thing out on the road real
quick and see if I can actually hear or feel any difference with the new intake
installed so far just at idle it sounds pretty normal just like it was with the
OEM airbox on unless of course we revved it like we did inside but
so just cruising through the neighborhood right now pretty slow speed
of course you can kind of hear the turbo making a little bit of the whirring
sound you know that it makes on deceleration or when you let off the gas
that kind of little whistle I do hear that a little bit more
and actually here I don’t know if you can hear it over the microphone or not
but like a little bit of a sucking surging sound when you let off the gas
as well we’ll see what it’s like when we get a little bit more speed going here
all right you can definitely hear the difference now once the turbo spools up
turbo noises are louder everybody loves turbo noises so that’s a bonus and it’s
not obnoxiously loud which is a good thing
give it a little more gas here and see how it sounds
yes yes you can definitely hear the turbo suck in and spooling as you
accelerate it’s a lot more audible than it was in the past but once you ease off
on the gas and kind of slow down it’s almost like it’s not even there it
sounds pretty normal actually
all right we’ll accelerate one more time here even when you let off the gas you
can hear the turbo spooling down I guess you would call that or slowing down
yeah all kinds of new turbo noises that were not there before that sounds pretty aweseome
oh man that is good that’s a good upgrade and the nice thing is as soon as
you kind of mellow out and get off the throttle it’s just like as if the truck
was stock you really don’t hear much of anything all right guys the quick first
sound impression of the S&B Cold Air Intake I like it I like it a lot and
curious to see how this thing is going to improve our efficiency in the end but
for now we’ll take it back to the garage and wrap up the video alright everybody
there we go the S&B Cold Air Intake installation is complete for my 2002
Ford f250 if you guys have any thoughts comments
or questions again leave them down below I would love to hear from you I’ll put
links in the description for the cold air intake as well as a cleaning kit
that you can get to clean your oiled filter which you have to do once a year
or so or as recommended or as needed overall I’m pretty happy with the
product the installation was pretty much a breeze no real troubles there adds a
good bit of sound to the car and hopefully will increase the efficiency
and miles per gallon of the truck as well as that’s what I am looking to do
with these modifications on the truck so this is the second upgrade in my little
engine modification phase for the f250 we have one more left that I’m gonna do
in a different video that is the dp-tuner the final piece to this puzzle
which will unlock all of the optimizations and upgrades that we have
on the truck allowing us to change tunes or change driving performance based on
the type of driving that we’re doing whether it’s daily driving or towing or
even race modes for the truck if you’re into that kind of thing for me I’m
basically looking for towing efficiency and daily driving efficiency so stick
around for that video we’ll go ahead and wrap this one up thanks again everybody
for watching I really appreciate it stay tuned for more good stuff coming up real
soon and I will catch you all next time

There is no doubt that the Ford Powerstroke engine is one of the most well-known and respected brands in the trucking industry. With over a hundred years of experience and manufacturing the Ford Powerstroke, it can be hard to find a company that doesn’t want you to be happy with their products. If your trucking company has one, it’s time to find a high quality air filter for your 7.3L Ford Powerstroke.

The first step to finding an air filter for your Ford Powerstroke is to shop online. The internet is an amazing resource for trucking-related information. It’s easy to find a website or product review that will help you determine which air filter is right for your needs. There are many websites that sell products directly from manufacturers.

After you’ve found a website that sells Ford air filters, you should go to the site and fill out a questionnaire asking about your trucking company’s specific needs. Ask about the number of hours your company works each day to ensure that their air filter system is working properly. Find out if the air filter will work in conjunction with the other parts of the powertrain. Many trucks have separate air filters for each engine so you will need to determine which type of air filter is best suited for your vehicle.

The next step to purchasing an air filter is to visit a dealership. You should ask the salesperson if they sell Powerstroke air filters. This will give you a chance to view the different air filters available from the trucking company. Some dealerships will also have a test drive available to allow you to test drive each filter. If you aren’t able to get a free test drive, you should try calling the dealer a few days prior to making your purchase.

Once you’ve decided on the type of air filter you want to buy, you’ll need to contact the trucking company to discuss your options. There may be a shipping charge if you’re ordering through a dealer. It’s always best to call the company up before making the purchase to ensure you’re getting the exact amount you need to avoid any unexpected surprises later on. In some cases, the trucking company will even help you ship the air filter to you.

Finding the best air filter for 7.3L Ford Powerstroke isn’t difficult at all. If you’re looking for one that meets your needs, don’t waste another day – contact a reputable trucking company and make an appointment for an in-home test drive to make sure your Ford Powerstroke engine is working properly.
