Amsoil EaAU4095 Cleanable/Reusable Filter

Get the Amsoil EaAU4095 filter. It is cleanable and reusable. It also comes with a bolt in the front of it so you can attach a bracket (of your making/choosing) to lock the filter in place. It also has a center hole in the front so you can mount your filter gauge to the front of the filter. Check out member IA7.3's pictures. He has one installed, and it looks like it works out well. I would also get the Pre-filter sock with it. If you are an Amsoil preferred member, you will get a discount. Or maybe an Amsoil dealer on here will hook you up. I think with my member price, the filter with the wrap was about $80 shipped. To me that makes a lot more sense than the 6637 since the Amsoil is a lifetime filter, whereas the 6637 is a throw away. And prices I've found after shipping on the 6637 have ranged from $40 - $55. I think this is the route I will probably end up taking. Either that, or I will bite the bullet and save up for an S&B kit.

Nothing will out clean and outflow a Tymar intake kit that uses a Donaldson filter. You can try DYI but buy the time you round up the correct parts its just not worth your time.

Every time you try to clean a filter its ability to work is diminished. The Donaldson will hold over a pound of dust and still handle the air flow.

Ive put 60k on mine with my mods and still flowing all the air needed.

I have been running a AMSOIL EaAU4090 filter on my truck for two years. To clean just vac the outside and blow compressed air from the inside. It works great!

I watched my AutoEnginuity scanner and can tell you that the last "exhale" you hear when you are gettin' down on it is the TC locking up. Does it 100% of the time.

Looks can be deceiving just ask the guy that went to a cross-dressors bar.

The WIX/NAPA 6637 is not a hydrophobic (water resistant) element and using it as an open element should be avoided. There are other concerns such as providing minimal radial clearance, isolating engine vibration, positioning away from rain drip channel, etc. I just wanted to draw a clear difference between copies, DIY efforts, and a Tymar product.
