A Look at Amsoils air filters.
 
5 Attachment(s)
AMSOIL Ea Air Filters represent a major breakthrough in filtration technology. For the first time, revolutionary nanofiber technology is available to the auto/light truck market. Nanofiber technology has been used exclusively in heavyduty applications, including the US ARMY Abrams M1 tank. AMSOIL has brought this technology to the auto/light truck market. AMSOIL Ea Air Filters provide the absolute best filtration for AMSOIL customers and with an unmatched four-year/100,000-mile guarantee, AMSOIL Ea Air Filters save money!


Nanofiber is a phrase generally referring to a fiber with a diameter less than one micron. Cellulose fibers, on the other hand, are larger than nanofibers and have larger spaces between the fibers, causing contaminants to load in the depth of the media and plug the airflow path, resulting in higher restriction and less capacity. AMSOIL Ea Air Filters incorporate a specially constructed cellulose media with synthetic nanofibers applied to the surface. Dust and submicron particles are trapped on the nanofiber surface, preventing them from lodging in the filter media depth.

Imagine two filtration media, a chain link fence and a mosquito net. Each is required to stop contaminants, in this case tennis balls. A tennis ball will fit quite nicely into an opening of a chain link fence, but will obstruct the hole almost 100%.
Now, imagine a tennis ball covering a mosquito net. The tennis ball, at the point of contact with the netting, will obstruct much less filter area than the chain link fence example. In fact, air will flow around the tennis ball all the way to the point of contact. It will take many more particles to obstruct the netting surface area than the chain link fence.

An engine needs air in order for combustion to occur, but the air drawn in through the induction system is loaded with contaminants. There are over 400 tons of suspended dirt and other contaminants in a cubic mile of air over a typical city. The concentration can be even higher in rural areas where there is frequent travel on unpaved roads. The dirt and contaminants drawn into an engine are the leading cause of engine wear.



The function of the air filter is to trap and hold these wear causing contaminants without restricting air flow. As the filter traps more and more contaminants, air flow becomes restricted, smothering the engine and diminishing performance. The more wear-causing contaminants a filtration media traps and the more contaminants the filtration media holds, while still allowing optimum air flow, the better the filtration media is.

The nanofiber technology used in AMSOIL Ea Filters surpasses all other technology in efficiency, capacity and service life. With AMSOIL Ea Air Filters, dust and submicron particles remain on the surface and are trapped on top of the nanofibers, preventing particles from lodging in the filter media depth. This produces higher efficiency and higher capacity which extends engine and filter life and reduces engine wear.


Efficiency is the ability of a filter to stop dirt and other airborne comtaminants from entering the engine. The more efficient a filter is, the more dirt and contaminants it stops. Extensive testing proves that AMSOIL Ea Air Filters are more efficient than cellulose and wet gauze filters.


Proper air flow is vital to maximize performance and engine life. Air is required to release the energy from the fuel being used. It takes 1,200 cubic feet of air to combust one gallon of gasoline. Inadequate air flow can cause serious loss of power, poor performance and excessive fuel consumption. Tests show that AMSOIL Ea Air Filters have more than three times the air flow of filters that use cellulose media alone.


The filters are available as both drop-in filters for OEM replacement & as cone styles which can be used on your favorite aftermarket intake set-up.

*Please note that anywhere a "wet guaze" or "oiled guaze" filter is mentioned they are talking about filters like the K&N brand.

Re: A Look at Amsoils air filters.
 
1. are these 'dry filters or oiled?
2. can we match one up to replace my k&N.
here are the details:
Part RF-1048 Product Specifications
Product Style: Round Tapered Universal Air Filter
Base Outside Diameter: 7.5 in (191 mm)
Flange Inside Diameter: 6 in (152 mm)
Flange Length: 0.625 in (16 mm)
Flange Type: Centered
Height: 6 in (152 mm)
Top Outside Diameter: 4.5 in (114 mm)
Top Style: Metal
Top Material/Finish: Chrome

3. could/should I use a prefilter wrap like the K&N drycharger on your filters?

Thanks,
Rob

Rob, they are dry filters.

Re: A Look at Amsoils air filters.
 
thanks. i want to try a dry one. with the lack of humidity here and the proliferation of dust, might be better off dry.

now lets see what they have close to that size__

These things are awesome for offroading so just imagine how well they will perform on blacktop! good stuff.

Rob our EaAU6081 is going to be the closest. The size is a little longer & you will need to make sure you have a couple more inches of space for it. Your K&N is about 6", the Amsoil is a little over 8". It is a dry filter. it can be cleaned with a shop vac or by blowing out with low pressure air.

Amsoil Number EaAU6081
Product Style-Round Tapered
Base OD 7.5"
Flange ID 6"
Flange Length .625
Flange Type Centered
Media Height 8"
Top OD 5"


The pre-filter is a great option. It really saves wear on the filter and catches all of the big dirt particles & bugs.
Here is more info on the Pre-Filters.

Here is the filter & pre filter on my 4.7L.

And Matt, Looking forward helping on your project if I can.

I dont know Rob...it will be tight with the K&N tube....
