aFe Direct Fit OE Replacement Air Filtersreplaces the restrictive factory paper filter and lets your engine breathe better. Paper filters do a good job in keeping dirt out but can get clogged easily so that it needs to be replaced frequently. Foam filters also clog easily. The Advanced flow engineering is made from cotton gauze filter that allows more airflow and is washable and reusable. aFe Direct Fit OE Replacement Air Filters are available as round, flat, oval and conical shapes. With our filters, a vehicle's engine can breathe a lot better. The material used is 100% engineering-grade polyurethane which is more flexible and will seal better in today's plastic and fiberglass factory air boxes. To make sure that our filters stand up over the life of your vehicle, we have urethane on all four sides of the filter, not just on the open ends. The polyurethane stands up to high engine temperatures and engine chemicals better that the plastomers that the factory filters use.
Every aFe OE high performance air filter is engineered to be washable and reusable, has greater flow over stock, resulting in increased H.P. and torque, better throttle response and ensure a lifetime of use. They are constructed with engineering grade polyurethane to withstand chemicals and heat while staying pliable yet firm. All flat panel filters utilize an integrated bump seal to ensure an airtight seal, but conform to uneven surfaces, requiring no gaskets or sealers. The rounded open pleat construction increases airflow while increasing dust holding capacity. Tall pleats allow for increased airflow and increased surface area that translates to longer service life.
