    Default Air Filter Preference?

    What is the preference? I'm thinking of a Purolator(paper) for my truck! Any suggestions?

    That's pretty lazy. It take ~20 minutes to clean a K&N, another 5 minutes to apply oil to it after it dries.

    I have been a user of K&N air filters for years. One of the first things I buy for any vehicle I purchase.

    I have had a preference for the Amsoil Ea Air Filters for some time. Very good flow compared to stock, with very good filtering. Synthetic mesh in filters does a far better job than traditional cellulose filter media. I like synthetic mesh media in all of my filters, oil or air. And you can vacuum clean the Amsoil one and use up to 4 yr / 100,000 miles according to them. $36 under preferred pricing.
    Hey there, VA, what do ya' say? How many vets did you kill today?
