which hi flow air filter

I'm looking to get one of the hi flow filters to improve economy on my driver, not sure which one to get. I was reading the K&N don't catch dirt that well with the oiled gauze, I live on a dusty road and that would be an issue.

I see Amsoil foam filters are recommended in old threads, I haven't found where I can actually buy one...

What about the Fram Air Hog filters? Are they any good? Are they gauze or foam? Any other brand I should look into?

Thanks,
-Michael

14" sounds a little big... it's on a Chevy 6, has the same air cleaner as the 267 V8. From an old reciept it looks like I used a Wix 2995.

Air Hog is a marketing ploy it is over rated and is only slightly better than Fram's standard filter.

K&N and Amsoil both make washable reusable high flow filters. Personally I prefer the oil foam rather than the oiled cotton gauze. The foam offers vastly more surface area for the oil to grab particulate matter from the air stream, and are less restrictive than gauze. Amsoil filters can be ordered directly from Amsoil or one of their distributors. Go th their web site and look for a distributor in your area.

Are these the right filters? https://www.amsoil.com/StoreFront/ts.aspx They don't seem to be selling them online anymore, I'll have to give them a call.

Is there any other brand foam filter?

Jegs only seems to have K&N elements, but I did find some Accel Power foam filters in Summit's catalog. Doesn't look like the oiled type... any good?

I believe in the higher flowing air filters giving you more hp, not much, but an increase sure, of course you exchange that for allowing more crud to pass through the filter. As long as I keep bugs and rocks out, I'm good Oh yea, btw that tornado advertisement cracks me up every time I see it. 70 bucks for a worthless spinning pos?!? Do you take cash, check, or credit!?
