They might be ai bit more than you want to spend, but Fram makes an Ultra air filter that's only sold by Walmart. I emailed Fram about the efficiency, and this is what they said. Note that Fram uses the fine dust in the ISO 5011 efficiency test. Some filter makers use the course dust to boost efficiency numbers. https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru...r-options-for-4-0l-v6-toyota#Post5157345 Also, they said the new filter pressure drop was only 1.5 in-H2O at 250 CFM air flow for my particular filter model, which is ptetty free flowing.

Which is better?
Don't realky know unless you can get ISO 5011 efficiency ratings. And you have to ensure you know if the ISO test was ran with the test specifief fine dust or coarse dust. Air filter efficiency testing is more convoluted than oil filter efficiency testing.

The Ultra air filter is rated to last twice as long (has greater holding capacity) as the regular Fram filters, so it's actually cheaper if based on how long you can run it for the cost.

It was 16.97 vrS 12 50 looked like it would filter better. Built well also with glue that holds pleats apart

Must members will not use the filter anywhere near capacity.

Looks like they seal better with the rubber gasket. The Ultra has it unlike the new regular one. The old regular Fram used to have the rubber gasket but not any longer.

Go to walmart.com search supertech air filter, Pick any one to add to cart, than it will ask for your car info. Than you can choose filters to fit that car
