Tell him to go to napa and get a 6673 filter, should be around 40 bucks. Then in the articles section(??) maintain has a how to on installing it. Hope that helps BTW dad did this mod on his truck, and fuel milage went down, because he liked the turbo sound so much he wouldn't keep his foot out of it

I wonder how well the Tymar flows and filters compared to the stock element?

It looked to me even better filtration/flow than what AFE has to offer.

I can't believe it would filter better than a PRo-Gaurd 7 element. I have been wrong before, but I doubt that a NAPA filter would filter/flow better than AFE pro-gaurd 7.

I was judging surface area compared to the filter size on the AFE, not sure how well it filters or the CFMs it can actually pull though. We should get someone to test this out?

I think as long as you have a good filter and you maintain it properly...life should be good. That is the thing that kills me. We see customer trucks with nasty filters...good filters like Dry Flow, Pro Gaurd 7, and others...and they dont clean them. Why? Take care of your crap. Those are the same guys that scream K&N sucks or what ever brand of filter sucks. Not if you clean them.

Ooh Ooh Ooh pick me... I've got the Tymar and would SACRIFICE for my buddies on this forum if someone wanted to send me (for free of course) an AFE Pro-Guard 7 so I could do a comparison. I promise I would report my findings to EVERYBODY!!!

Thought I read somewhere that a brand new afe pre-oiled and all will pull restriction on the gauge?? But that huge napa filter wouldn't create any restriction. I hope it's not true cuz I have an afe stg2.
