A car with a dirty air filter is like an athlete suffering from a bad case of colds. Many aspects of the car's performance dwindle down as dirt increases. This includes power, torque, throttle response, and even fuel consumption. But cleaning and replacing air filters are sometimes overlooked because of the time they take to do so. Fortunately, synthetic air filter cleaner solutions were developed to speed up the process. In this segment, we tried using the AEM Dryflow air filter cleaner to decongest the respiratory system of a few of our cars.
- Easy and simple steps
- Reduces time cleaning your air filter
- Comes in an easy to grab bottle with a spray nozzle
- Water-soluble and environment friendly
- We were not much of a fan of air filter cleaning solutions. But after trying the AEM air filter cleaner solution, we were convinced that the product can deliver what it says it can. However, if your air cleaner is very dirty, you might have to repeat the process a couple more times.
- The steps indicated were easy to understand and follow. We were spraying the solution generously on our filters in no time. After ten minutes, we rinsed the filter and got most of the dirt away. Should the written instructions be insufficient for you, there is a video uploaded in the AEM website to provide a visual example.
- After the cleaning phase, we put back the filters on our cars. We felt that our cars breathing better again as we played with the gas pedal.
- We were hoping that there was a concentrated solution of the AEM Dryflow air filter cleaner. That way, we could place and mix the solution in a bucket and use it for more than just one air filter.
- With the current nozzle, there is a likelihood that you will overspray while applying the solution to the filter. This can actually be wasteful, and we hate wasting a product that we bought.
The AEM Dryflow air filter cleaner is an adequate solution for removing light to moderate dirt in your filter. However, stubborn dirt might require you to redo the steps at least once.
