[AFE Air Filters] are performance filters that restrict air flow less than factory air filters and provide superior filtration to factory, as well. [The AFE Air Filter] is an OE replacement filter, but will allow much better air flow over stock for performance improvements in horsepower and torque. In addition, the [AFE Air Filter] is washable and reusable, so will last much longer than factory paper filters, even up to the life of your vehicle, and is better for the environment, generating less waste. AFE's open, rounded pleat design of their filters and deep pleat height allow for better air flow and a longer period in between cleanings due to its greater capacity for holding dirt. [AFE's Air Filter] uses oil, for the ultimate in filtration without restricting air flow and is protected by a warranty for the life of your vehicle. An [AFE Air Filter] only requires cleaning about every 25,000 to 30,000 miles, under normal use.
AFE Filter Media Types
AFE offers three different air filter media types: Pro 5R, ProGuard7 and ProDryS. The Pro5R filter media includes 5 layers of progressively finer mesh cotton gauze that is oiled, for the highest air flow and is suitable for those who drive primarily on paved streets and highways, and are looking for the most horsepower gains. ProGuard7 filter media from AFE offers the same 5 layers of oiled cotton mesh, but also adds another 2 layers of finer porosity synthetic non-woven media backing for ultimate protection in off-road driving situations where the environment is extremely dusty and protection from contaminants is a higher priority than extreme horsepower; this filter media is preferred by drivers of compression-ignition diesel trucks. AFE's ProDryS air filter media features 3 layers of progressively finer porosity synthetic non-woven media and is used without oil, for ultimate convenience and simplicity of cleaning the filter, since re-oiling is not necessary.
