How often have you found yourself replacing this filter? I am in a debate of buying it or doing a S&B or AFE stage 2. Thanks

I've had mine on for 7,000 miles now... still looks/works great. I'm thinking 15k ish.... just gonna keep an eye on it really, change as needed. I check my oil/fluids weekly, very anal about inspecting everything and making sure it's A-OK!

Why not just buy a cleanable, waterproof reusable filter that will fit right on the 4 inch pipe you already have set up for the 6637, safe money, better flow, better filtration and never replace it again. like amsoil, the 4090 will fit directly onto your current system. the 4095 fits directly in also, but it has a 1/4 20 stud out the end and a port for the filter sensor (tells you when its dirty, clear push button deal) i have pics uploaded for my install.

I change my 6637 every 6 months or so and I drive in a dirty environment.. so that being said they last awhile.. lots of surface area.

I put a Fram CA8037 (big ole filter) with a 4" diameter 45 degrees pipe between it and the black flex pipe. No sealing issues. It only cost $18 too!
