6637 filter mod vs gravel roads?

I have to drive 8 miles to work and back everyday on gravel roads and do a bit more gravel driving in the summer time

Does that make the filter mod a bad idea for me?

How well will it filter the dust?

How often will I have to change it?

As long as it is sealed correctly I don't think it will be a problem.

Ok but even though it's for heavy equipment it's still going to be open and not in a box that won't matter?

The only thing the box really does it keep water out.

This is an even better reason to run this filter than most of us have.

Remember, the idea of the filter is to "filter" dirty air. A k&n or any other "performance" filter would be total **** in your app.

This is probably the best thing you can do for your engine (by installing the 6637 filter).
