99-03 Ford 7.3L Powerstroke
AIRAID Filter Company has leveled the power playing field for the 7.3L with the development of an all-new Cold Air Dam Intake System for the 7.3-liter that allows the engine to breathe deeper, resulting in big horsepower and torque gains. The new system replaces the restrictive factory air box setup with an AIRAID Cold Air Dam which also incorporates a heavy-duty battery tray, complete with urethane battery pad. At the heart of this system is a HUGE 1700-CFM washable and reusable Premium Air Filter that is available with either SynthaFlow® composite or our newest SynthaMax® Non-Oiled filtration technology along with a specially shaped intake tube that feeds the Power Stroke turbo inlet.
All AIRAID filters are hand-poured using a special urethane blend that prevents cracking and shrinkage in the most extreme conditions. On the dyno, the new Cold Air Dam Intake System for the 7.3-liter generated an additional 27 horsepower and a whopping 55 lb/ft of torque to the rear wheels at a real-world 1900 rpm, about where most diesel driving is conducted. The system is a must for Power Stroke owners considering other upgrades such as a programmer or chip, and aftermarket exhaust system.
SUPERIOR AIR FLOW AND FILTRATION AT NO EXTRA COST
In terms of filtration, all AIRAID SynthaFlow™ Premium Filters are a specially-blended combination of gauze and dry synthetic layers that consistently filter down to two microns, providing superior filtration at no extra cost. AIRAID filters are also hand-poured with urethane, instead of rubber, to prevent cracking and shrinkage in the extreme conditions found under the hood of a turbocharged engine.
On the dyno, the new AIRAID Cold Air Dam Intake System, p/n 400-246 for the 7.3-liter generated an additional 27 horse-power and a whopping 55 lb/ft of torque to the rear wheels at a real-world 1900 rpm, about where most diesel driving is conducted. The system is a must for Power Stroke owners considering other upgrades such as aprogrammer or chip, and aftermarket exhaust system.
And as is the case with all AIRAID products, the Power Stroke Intake System comes with our No Hassle Warranty.

Well engineered system.Actually included all of the hardware needed to install.NO trimming or tweaking of any of the brackets was necessary to install system.Very easy to install,took about 45 minutes start to finish.Truck definitely feels like it has more bottom end.Have not had it installed long enough to see if fuel mileage has improved.Also,the size of the filter is massive in comparison to the other intakes on the market.Would highly recommend this product to anyone.

I put it on a 2000 7.3L F250. Install was easy, the truck runs better with it on there. I would recommend a chip to assist with the turbo.

The install on the intake was pretty easy and only took about an hour. It sounds sweet and the you can really hear the turbo. I have a 99.5 7.3L F350 with the bulley dog 6 position chip, mbrp 4 inch turbo back, and the intake goes very nicely with the set up. You can definitly feel the difference once you put it to the floor. I highly recommend it to anyone.
