It also helps prevent damaging particles from entering the engine and causing increased engine wear. It lasts 50 percent longer and stops 50 percent more dirt than any other brand, making it the perfect choice for every vehicle application.
"As with the other review the filter does not fit the air box. The center baffle doesnt allow the box to be closed"

"Cannot put top of air box back down far enough to engage clips that secure it to bottom of air box. The filters rigid plastic baffle ends and/or more likely the rigid plastic center baffle separator are too tall. They make the Fram filter noticeably taller than the OEM AC Delco filter that I removed. Might have fit when car brand new but air cleaner box is fiber/plastic material and deforms (sinks in top center) a bit over time and with AZ heat. Dont want to force and could crack that fiber/plastic box lid. Doesnt look like other brand filters have that center baffle separator which could be the problem with the FRAM."posted by: Desert Penguin on June 12, 2013
