Air Filter

Has anyone used the K&N air filter, and was it worth it. Also, I have a 2007 Georgetown 359TS on the Ford chassis with the V10, does anyone know what part number the K&N filter is?

I installed the Bank's Cold Air Intake with K&N Air Filter. There was not a K&N direct replacement for the air filter. I notice one thing for sure is better throttle response. Less MPH loss when climbing hills.

Is it a difficult insulation? Also thought I might look into a high flow muffler.

The cold air intake will help, the K&N filter will not. I use to race stock cars and K&N's rob horsepower on the dyno, if you look at some racing forums you will see this is a pretty common discussion. You are much better off replacing the stock paper one a little more often.

Not difficult at all. It took about an hour. The one sensor from the factory intake gets transferred over. It fits right in place. be careful when buying one though. There are two models for the Ford F53, just be sure you buy the one for the correct year of your chassis.

The K&N Filter is included as part of the Banks Cold Air Intake System. I can only speak from my experience, but it really helped in the throttle response, especially on hills.

you would also benefit from a power programmer such as .
Bully Dog Gas and Diesel Power & Performance
wwwdiablosport.com

I have my 05 6.0l ecm tuned and it does make a difference .
I bought a tuned pcm from www.wait4meperformance.com they modified the shift points and raised the rev limiter.

if I use premium fuel fuel milage goes up accordingly .

Here's the Installation instructions and Owner's Manual for Ford Motorhome Chassis 2005 -12 for a reference.

Banks Cold Air Intake - Ford F53 Motorhome 2005-12.pdf

Here's the link to their site if anyone else has an interest. I am in no way affiliated with this company. I only purchased one of their products. Just trying to help someone with a question.
