    Amsoil vs K&N Filter on K&N FIPK Tube (ZJ 5.9)

    Don't know exactly where this belongs, so I'm posting here..

    I thought I would post a thread to show Pics of the K&N vs. the Amsoil air filter on the K&N FIPK tube on my 98 ZJ 5.9L. This was the stock K&N filter that came with my FIPK kit for my 98 ZJ.

    The Air Filter Specs:

    K&N Filter - RF-1027
    Product Style: Round Tapered Universal Air Filter
    Base Outside Diameter: 6.5 in (165 mm)
    Flange Inside Diameter: 4 in (102 mm)
    Flange Length: 1.75 in (44 mm)
    Flange Type: Centered
    Height: 8 in (203 mm)
    Top Outside Diameter: 4.5 in (114 mm)

    Amsoil EaAU4090
    Product Style Round Tapered
    Base OD 6"
    Flange ID 4"
    Flange Length 1.75"
    Flange Type Center
    Media Height 9"
    Top OD 5"

    Note: The Prefilter shown in pics was a separate item ordered at the same as filter @ additional cost.

    No, it's a dry filter...there is directions somewhere, but basically wipe off and air blow the gunk off of it with compressed air...no buying cleaner or Oil again (at least for this one, still have a K&N in my TJ, but might also replace if I'm happy with this one)
