Question Air filter opinions

I'm gonna do a DIY intake, just curious about the filters. Everyone on here uses the WIX 46637, which BTW $28.29 on fleetfilter.com is an AWESOME price. My employee price for WIX is $30.30. ANYhow, I also looked at K&N filters and the RD-1460 is 9" long by 7" in diameter vs. 12.38" long and 8.5" in diameter for the WIX. Ive had good luck with K&Ns and my employee pric, theres only a $6 difference between the two and K&N makes a sock for theirs as well.

Also, WIX lists their flow as 425CFM but I can't find a rating for the K&N, I'll e-mail them but who knows when I'll get a reply.

Any experience from ya'll on K&N and why it doesnt seem like many ppl on here use them.

well search does not seem to like anything less than 4 letters, as "air" and "K&N" wouldnt search.

all i can find so far is tails about the filters coming apart?



Also, i found a donaldson B085011, looks just like WIX, as in does not have that goofy signature blue cell type element that i think of when someone mentions donaldson filters.

I had a Baldwin PA2818 (same as the 6637) but felt like it was too cramped in there. It was crammed in between the hood insulation, fender well, battery and fuse box. I went with a dry, cleanable, tapered AMSOIL filter and can really tell the difference. You can hear the difference.

This particular filter has a 4" throat. Is 9" long and a 1" taper from 6" to 5". My truck really likes it! Me too!
