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.

Look at the donaldson version if you're gonna be doing anything like in your sig pic. The donaldson is a hydrophobic filter.

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?

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).
