Apparently, Chris carries these for AFE. So, we will start offering them as on option with purchase of the V1 intake. We will be flow testing the filter to see how it compares to the K&N.
Greg- have your folks performed the flow testing on the AFE and K&N filters yet? Maybe throwing the OEM air filter in on the test as well, along with filter specifications to help draw conclusions between the filters?Probably both. In any case, I'll get back to you guys with comparison flow data for these filters.
An earlier message to this thread proposed the OEM filter having about 100 sq. in. more filter surface than the AFE, but per AFE their filter flows 483cfm vs. the OEM's 361cfm. Graph from AFE here- http://afepower.com/media/catalog/product/files/pdpfiles/3/1/31-10266i1600.1473447090.jpg
At first blush, this tells me the synthetic filter media of the AFE is somehow allowing more air to flow, being that it has less filter media but possibly larger gaps between the strands of synthetic filter media. (Or maybe the engineering of the synthetic media is of the same density as the paper fibers of the OEM, but air flows more efficiently, possibly with less friction, through the synthetic media?) Momentary flow test data is good to know, but long term (i.e. filter service period) harmful pollutant stopping capacity is just as, if not more important. Which filter stops more damaging dirt primarily, and finer (possibly non-damaging) particles secondarily, over a typical service cycle?
