well what kind of trucks do you work on like f250-f550 or big turcks like f650 +I'm just going to say this about the aftermarket air filters and this is in no way a jab at AFE as I run their elements myself.
Here in the trucking business where I work we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of dusted engines since 2008 MY and up and many of them have been because of the slightest missteps by the owners of these trucks.
For instance, truck drivers have always blown out their air filters w/ compressed air and reinstalled their used air filters. Well doing that w/ a modern engine and it's extremely tight tolerances will most certainly lead to a dusted engine inside of 60K miles. It's due to microscopic holes that are created in the filter element.
I've seen countless others dusted due to the smallest holes elsewhere in the intake system. Holes that would not have phased an older engine.
