Re: GREEN filters

i ran one years ago with my factory box. Sealed good. Really don't know anything else. I run a 6637 now. I say stick with that unless it's too noisey for you.

Re: GREEN filters

I just swapped my 6637. It was a lot closer to black, than green.

Re: GREEN filters

I'm thinking more of filtration. The 6637 paper Is looking pretty grey from water or moisture and I've noticed some knicks on the turbo blades as of recent

Re: GREEN filters

Nicks are ugly. My discoloration was from North Texas smog being sucked through the filter for two years. Filter was still holding up good though. Just got kinda skeered of it.

Re: GREEN filters

I replace mine once a year I need to get an outer wear for it or another pair of panty hose for a cheap alternative.

Re: GREEN filters

I had the afe high flow drop in filter before, and i'm thinking about going back to it. with all the rain and snow we've been having, i'm not to sure about the open element. theres a pretty clear path from the filter down into the wheel well.

it's either clean out the afe and put it back in with the stock airbox, or build a top for the stock box that's open, similar to this one and use the GREEN filter i have. what do you guys think about the size of it?

Re: GREEN filters

I don't have a problem and my 6637 is sitting on my inner fender. It has been that way for over 2 years and I live in Wisconsin so we get snow and rain I have never had a problem.

Re: GREEN filters

have you had any problems with any nicks in the turbo wheel? i'm concerned with seeing those, considering it's a practically brand new wicked wheel. the nicks started showing up once i switched to the 6637.
