  • Becoming A Certified Installer

    How does one go about this? As I said in another thread about my installation, my buddy Steve, known here as "frashdog" came over to my buddy Tom's house and literally climbed into the engine bay and went at it. If it weren't for him and Tom I'd still be lining OPEC's pockets

    Yep the dog is getting dirty.

    Oh I'm loving that back fuel port. To me that is the crux of the job. You can see the oranged handled pick set, clutch for getting that old o-ring out of the flare nut.

    I think I know why an installer gets what they do, maybe incase they snap a fitting off in a head? I've heard a few too many horror stories of people messing with these fuel port fittings and breaking them either trying to remove or overtighten. Most were from people upgrading thier stock fuel system to a regulated return.

    Let it be know, that K&N filter is going in the trash for the big tymar.

            you couldn't give me a K&N filter.
            Not good enough filtration and unless your building more than 500 horses, the stock filter is more than adequate.

              You're probably right. I was thinking spare. I have a Tymar intake. Believe it or not, I had to have a replacement filter shipped in as no one had it on Island. Lucky I didn't trash the old one!

              You may want to keep it as a spare!

                  Ditto...same here. Everything I've read has said that the stock one was sufficient until you reach the higer HP levels.

                    Yea the stock one does it's job...but the tymar whistles!

                    And when you open you hood and show people you great big huge filter, their like, "wow you must have a really big engine there." I'm like, "I guess"

                    K&N really are no good when compared to what's available, it's all marketing.

                        Donaldson makes the filter in the AIS kit.

                          AIS in the Ex. ($200 from www.powerstrokeshop.com) - best intake for all but a super-modified PSD - period. Almost same volume as max aftermarket, but no compromise in filtration (unlike k&n and some others...).

                          NAPA 6637 in the F350. (under $50) Just changed filter after 50k. MOST air you can suck - plenty of turbo whistle and HUGE surface area for great filtration and long life. Search for this mod and Pete's Covers over at FTE forums...
                          2001 F350 XLT 4x4, dually flatbed. 6637 air filter, single-shot injectors, straight-piped, BTS tunes, 200 gal main VO tank - 180k greasy miles
                          2000 Excursion Limited 4x4. V3, AIS intake, BTS trans & tunes - 120k VO miles

                            Just ordered 4 tymar filters (napa 6637) from fleet filter for $140delivered.
                            $35/filter delivered! Last time I bought one at napa it was about $50 and they had to order it.

                              I've removed my filter information, and will make a generic thread.

                              I second the need for more installers.
