Green Air Filters

While at the Summit Truckfest a friend and I talked to a representative from Green Air Filters. They had a display with a fan and a tube with a ping pong ball in it. The green filter kept the ball up where all the other filters couldn't. K&N couldn't, FRAM couldn't, and I think they had an Amsoil but it couldn't. The filters are oiled but unlike gauze they use cotton that holds the oil better and doesn't risk you MAFS. They have a website and the prices are generally lower for a panel filter than K&N. They are based out of Pennsylvania. www.greenfilterusa.com

Well someone with lots of money buy one of those displays and then buy the same filter but different brands. He said that they embarrased the K&N people because they thought the same thing but then they brought a brand new one and the same thing happened.

The price on their website is much more than what it was in Summits store. You can't buy from Summit's website yet but I know that the filter at the store was ~$42. I paid $55 for my K&N about 3 months ago.

CAUTION:
I bought one when I first got my truck, after less than 5,000 miles it warped and would not seal properly into the air box. (It kept folding and falling into the bottom of the box) I did run one in my car and had no problems with it, but I would be skeptical of using them again. If you decide to get one make sure you keep an eye on it that it stays properly installed.
