ok i understand ALOT of people on here dont like the k&n drop in filter. I don't have that. i have the complete kit and a prefilter sock on it. my question to anyone out there is... would the afe pro guard 7 filter fit onto my k&n system?? from, what i've seen online the dimensions are very close if not the same. anybody know if i am right or way off on this? basicly, is the bottom of the filter about 4in in diameter. the part that connects to the intake hose?

I beleive I have seen people actually do that. I jsut can not recall if it was the AFE PRo7 used in the stage II or was the 6637 filter. I think they both fit the same. Can not remember if there was any modifing but I have seen it done. What is the out and inside diameter of the KN tube. You are also correct that Kn is not as bad as the drop in as it eliminates the issue of air pass around the filter but it still has a bad filter weave setup or whatever the technically name for it is. What I do nto get is they have owned the industry in the past why they woudl jsut sit on the tech and not advance it!?!

Unless you jsut hate the looks of the 6637 type filters take alook at the one AFE has out. Its their 5R tech version. MFG#24-9104

Here is one pic:




This filter outflows any other filter on the market and has more filtering surface area as well. Is washable and has a re oil schedule of 40K-50K miles. SO same service as the 6637 but you do not need a new one and flows more at less vacuum. Also does nto have issue with rain and water.

I've ran the same tymar filter for 30k miles. I pull 60+ psi of boost out of it still. Take the filter off and I see MAYBE 1-2 psi difference. PS, this is 60+ psi of boost out of a 75mm charger. The stock charger is somewhere around 54mm IIRC. What that means is that I'm pulling WAY more CFM.

Tymar FTW!!!!

Nothing has been proven to outflow AND outclean a Donaldson filter the Tymar system uses.
