The Donaldson 6637 or Napa wasn't easily available, had to settle for the Fram CA6818 and it said "Duralite" on it. This old post TheDieselStop.Com Forums: Are all Tymar style replacement filters created equal? YES!!!
seems to point out that whether this particular filter model is Wix, Baldwin, Fram, Donaldson... they're all the same one.
Anyway, I installed the Fram today (I'm no fram fan, haven't used their junk oil filters for years) and can't say I see any more boost or more noise as some people say but I just burned up the hill from my house. Haven't taken it on the hwy yet. Just a quick shakedown run.

autoparts ripped me to the tune of $57cdn for it. Rip off artists. $1.69 for the 4" diameter white plastic pipe piece, $3 for clamp. Just cut the pipe piece to side and chamfered the edges a bit. Was a b*stard to get the pipe into the hard plastic/rubber of the filter. Had to hammer it in with a board on top. Real tight.
Prob my imagination... seemed to spool a tiny bit faster.
Anyone know what the wastegate actuator is set to open at (psi)? From what I've been reading it's adjustable. Which way is more, which way less?
Edit: After a good drive to work and back... the sound under boost isn't any louder than stock. But if you're on it for a while WOT and then snap the throttle pedal closed the turbo stall sound is incredible... it's probably 3 times as loud as OE air box. Sounds like a blow off valve. :-)
