Duratec Intake

I have a question. I'm trying to get rid of the factory lifetime box on my 07 and I was wondering if the 08 SES duratec filter assembly would work. I'm not trying to go aftermarket I'm just trying to maintain my gas mileage and have the ability to change the filter when I do the oil change. Anybody know?

Dorman makes a unit that fits in the old spot but with a replaceable element. Not sure on the 08+ box.

I am in the same boat. I'm debating a cold air intake though.

I originally bought this, and returned it. It was not going to fit.

If you look at the other items customers viewed below, you will see the same model with a serviceable insert. They look like the same style box to me though. I saw some cold air intakes on ebay for ridiculously cheap - like 30 bucks. Don't know anything about the quality.

Where would you source the OEM 08+ box? I know if you plan on buying it new, you would be better off going with an aftermarket SRI/CAI for the price. If you can find one cheaply from a pick and pull, might be worth to see if you can fab it to make work.

For a good name aftermarket; FSWerks, CFM, Steeda all make good stuff. You can also try the Stealth Intake, would give you the choice of what filter to use. Essentially you modify your existing intake to act as a ram air attaching the filter element to the pipe the maf is on

'08-'08 didn't work for one recently, never figured the problem:Changed pzev airbox to non pzev, p0171 code

Might be a small MAF tube change, haven't seen this with any setup using the same tube or even quality aftermarket intakes.

Could also be an installation problem not found, OP couldn't confirm any issue of that type.

Spiff's answer works, as do the various methods of mounting a washable replacement filter in place of the stock filter box (SRI type or at the end of the MAF tube for a CAI).

I just looked that up - around $240. Anyone know the best place to buy?

I have my lifetime box and tube with the MAF sensor ripped out currently for other work.

I found one at a salvage yard complete but after I thought about it I didn't know about changing the distance of the mass air sensor from the throttle body so I just said forget it. I have read these cars are extremely sensitive to changes in airflow so I'd rather be safe then sorry

Its also the size of the tubing that your attaching the maf sensor to. It has to be same as stock diameter.
