New Performance Air Induction kit for all 6.5TD C/K Pick-ups and Suburbans 97-98 (equjipped with a mass air-flow sensor)
MAF SENSOR NOT INCLUDED. YOU ARE TO REUSE YOUR MAF SENSOR.
New Performance Induction System from SSDiesel SupplyTM. Remove and throw away that restrictive factory airbox and install our Performance Induction kit. Increase hp, decrease turbo spool-up time and hear that turbo whine like you've never heard it before! You will feel the power, hear the power, and see the difference if you have a Boost Gauge (sold separately on our website). This kit increases airflow up to 50% over that stock airbox trying to suck air thru the fender! Sucking air thru the fender is severely restrictive, dirty, and pulls in no cooler air then our system, just with alot more restriction. Diesels love to breathe, open up that intake!!! Works great on it's own but add our 4" exhaust to finish the job and really make it scream!
Fits all c/k pick-ups and Suburbans 97-98 equipped with a MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor)
If you have a 97-98 without the MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) order p/n ssd-707
This DUAL CONE filter features a reversed cone on it's top end for additional flow. 35% more flow then a filter of comperable size. They feature a ding-proof stainless steel mesh outer layer and a oiled woven cotton inner layer that filters and flows better then gauze or foam. Made for SSDiesel SupplyTM by a famous filter mfg to our specs. We feature a million mile warranty if properly maintained. Includes everything you need to install (except MAF Sensor). Recommended service-every other oil change. Please see the service kit listed separately.
We also feature the connection on the inlet tube for easy "plug-in" installation of the tube from the CDR valve for proper function and emissions compliance. Does not include MAF sensor, shown for reference only. Your existing MAF may be used over or a new one purchased from us. Please see p/n ssd-8308.
We have performed complete temperature testing before we started to market this new filter set-up. We installed a temp probe from a calibrated industrial pyrometer into the IAT sensor hole on the manifold and made some good hard runs. This was done before the weather turned cold with a prototype filter. It showed no significant temp rise over sucking thru that restrictive air box. Reason being, the fender has multiple openings drawing in underhood air anyways! Some early years had a plastic snorkel that ran thru the fender to draw air from the front of the vehicle, but just about everyone who ever owned one with it, took it off as it choked the turbo the first week they owned the truck!
The added benefit of no restriction more then outweighs the negitive effects of drawing underhood air. Look at most muclecars. One of the first things hot rodders do is open up the air filter with something like a K&N, drawing air from under the hood almost in every case. You know that builds hp!
You will notice an immediate difference in turbo spool-up and hear that baby scream with this new Induction System.
In stock, ready to ship!
NOTE: DOES NOT INCLUDE MAF SENSOR. USE YOUR EXISTING ONE OVER.
