6637 ...CAT

So ive seen this 6637 filter that everyone seems to love so much here. What is this filter actually made for originally? Is there anything special about the design as for running it as an open filter?

The reason im curious is I work at CAT and we have filters that look exactly the same off our excavators and bulldozers etc. and im wondering if I could just do the same thing with one of those. I just want to make sure there is no weird design difference.

It is designed for a much larger engine. It has way more surface area then the stock filter so it flows much better. And a do it your self air filter for under $50! Why would anyone pay for an intake?

Yeah, that cross reference number doesn't match up to anything CAT from my searching.
