AIS or Tymar??

Who has what for preferences and why?

The reason I ask is I'm considering DP's 120.

Thanks........

AIS: good stock replacement, keeps the cab quiet, excellent filtration. Becomes a restriction when you start adding some decent power.

Tymar: much cheaper, very loud inside the cab as you can hear more of the engine and turbo, excellent filtration. This one works well with power adder mods.


So, depending on how far you want to go in power, and what your preferences are while driving will determine the best intake setup for you. A chip and stock injectors isn't making a huge load of power, and the AIS with a fender sleeve mod should be able to flow just enough air to keep everything happy. Tymar has the "cool" factor of a giant filter sitting in the engine bay.

Tymar. It's MUCH cheaper, easy to install, and I don't think its noisy, unless I'm going up a hill under a load, and then it just sounds plain [email protected] You just hear the turbo sucking air, that's all.

Tried both.....am going to go with AIS. 6637 proved to have too much noise on a 200 mile trip this weekend, and boost easily goes to 30#. A little too much for the stock turbo. I could fool with the BigHead, but with the AIS, everything stays in balance. Remember, this is an Excursion that's used more as a car than truck -- traveling, vacations, etc. I guess my goal is not so much a hotrod truck, but a good responsive truck.

Thanks all for your thoughts and preferences.

I'd send you a pm/email but apparently have to have 15/20 posts to do so. Hate to just pad...

Not sure if I can receive PMs or not, but you can try to send me one if you want. I'm interested in more detail.

Now that wasn't thinking very well on my part, if you've only got 10 posts you can't send a pm either... sorry.

As long as you zoodad your core support you'll have plenty of flow through the AIS. Without the zoodad there's a restriction, but it's not the filter, it's the snorkle butting up against the core support.
The snorkle on the AIS is slightly longer than the stock airbox and virtually seals itself against the back of the core support. Just be careful if you get caught towing heavy in a bad snowstorm, you could end up with a big block of blue ice in your filter housing (the filter will plug up with snow) I used to throw a small piece of cardboard over my zoodad hole when I was towing in heavy snowstorms (it's only a problem if you're towing heavy enough to be deep into the throttle for long periods in white-out conditions)
