All “I” know is, I’ve used them for years, don’t smell any oil, haven’t had any sensors oil fouled, have noticed a power increase, and am saving $$$, not having to buy regular filters!
More than enough evidence for me to use them (with confidence)👍
Oh, so you’re saying there’s a different type of engineer that designs air filters, as upposed to those that design autos?

That’s a crazy price! I paid $50 for the ones I bought for my two cars, and am getting one for my Discovery Sport. Can’t find any kind of discount for this one, looks like another $50, but they’re well worth it!
I replaced my 2005 4.6.
It wasn’t hard, but definitely challenging.
Four or five plastic shrouds. Some screw heads a little hard to reach, but definitely a backyard job without any special tools.
I’d highly recommend looking at some videos before you start, as some things need to come off and...
This isn’t an answer to your question, but my ‘05
to finish, my ‘05 threw off a couple driveshaft weights!
