Default S & B intake filter wash

Can someone please tell me the instructions for washing an S & B Filter? My '06 5.9 has one, but came with no instructions. Also. How do I tell if I have the original or an up graded exhaust?

Thanks for any help.

You'll want the S&B part number 88-0007 cleaning kit.

Here's how the cleaning process goes:

1. Remove and clean

Clean sealing area of filter and filter housing with a clean soft rag. Share or lightly tap the filter on a hard surface to remove and loosen large particles and debris. A soft brush may be used to loosen large particles of debris or bugs. Make note of wich side the filter has trapped the dirt. Use S&B's Filter Cleaner to clean the filter.
2. Fill applicator bottle

Rotate the Squeeze Bottle of Oil with the cap facing downward. Make note of your starting point on the measurement guage to make sure that the proper amount of oil is dispensed. When reoiling a filter, it is critical to place the oil on the side where the dirt will accumulate. Using the applicator bottle, place a drop of oil on the peak of each pleat where it meets urethane (rubber).
3. Allow oil to bleed

After allowing the oil to bleed for 20-30 minutes, inspect the fitler for any white areas wher ethe oil did not cover. With the remaining oil in the Applicator apply a small amount of oil to those white areas. Applying the correct amount of oil (+5 grams) is critical to proper performance of the filter. DO NOT over oil your filter.

As far as your exhaust, normally aftermarket mufflers are louder than stock mufflers. Also, most have the name of the mfgr stamped on them.

Thankyou, Maddog,
Guess I will have to check around for a supplier. Appreciate the information. Guess I will need to look for a name stamp on my muffler. It has a 4 inch pipe with a huge chrome extension. Not sure what the OEM looks like.

On the diesels, the muffler is normally big enough to hide a dead body in it. Seriously, they are huge round beasts. A stamp is a dead give away, but you can also, look at how the exhaust is clamped to the cats, if it's a band clamp then it's aftermarket as most systems will replace the OEM U-style exhaust clamp.

Thank you, Cndnoil, now I just have to wait for the cold, stormy weather to ease up so I can do a little investigating! Have my truck/work bay full of tractors, so no way to get it inside. Guess it is time to get some work done and get the tractors that I won't be using in the shed for the winter. It seems to be coming on us here in the lower Great Lakes area rather quickly!
