Re: Donaldson Air Intake system

Use the Ford filter and do the Zoodad mod, if you really need more air do the fender sleeve mod.
Which filter does powerstrokeshop sell with their kit? If I remember it was the white filter and this is the first time I have heard about the blue unit filtering better. Where do you get the facts for this statement?
[/ QUOTE ]The kit comes with a blue Motorcraft filter. They sell both filters and the Motorcraft (blue) is about $10 more expensive. The statement about the filtering ability and capacity of the two filters comes from JFlagstad:

Jordan here again from Donaldson. I think that some of you are trying to make an "Apples to Apples" comparison of these 2 filters, and that is not possible.
The filters are made using 2 different medias. Going from the blue media to the white media, you will sacrifice dust efficiency and filter capacity. I guess you need to ask yourself if you want to change the filter more often, sacrifice efficiency and save a few bucks? Or, change lest often, sacrifice nothing, and get the utmost protection for the vehicle you paid a lot of money for?
I guess it all goes back to a lesson we learn over and over again as consumers, and that is we get what we pay for.
