Just out of curiosity, what is your main usage of this Cool Bus?. But congrats none the less on getting her back up and running.

is it really that bad of a filter? cuz the 6637 certainly will not fit in the space i have for the filter.

i remember seein a thread around here talkin about a fram big circular filter that was a bit smaller than the 6637. but i cant find it or a part number or anything.

what would u guys recommend. again the 6637 will not work
