Great video from great youtube channel comparing brands of air filters. I only wish he would have also tested oem too.

I’ll be installing Fram Extended Guard filters on both of my Subies when they arrive tomorrow. I’ll make sure to stay away from flour!

I also noticed the Fram and AC Delco performed similarly. AC Delco made by Fram, perhaps?

Purolator and WIX did splendidly. But how significant is flour to true Silicon? I don't know but less is still better.

Well Purolator is 99% per ISO 5011... And Wix is 99.5% per ISO 5011. .. . A lot better than STP blue air filter that is just 90%.

Good point bbhero. I think I'll throw a Purolator or OEM back in the VW and remove the K&N now that I'm not going to tune it. But I'd rather the K&N over an STP if the latter specified 90% efficiency.

I think the filters used in this test were purchased by viewers who support the channel monetarily.

Have you ever seen a K&N? It's just a few layers of gauze material. You can see lots of light through them. The oil on the gauze helps trap particles.

I haven't reviewed Bob's original air filter test but as I remember, his test was similar to Project Farm. You be the judge.

https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/air-filtration-test/

And of course, this will differ with every filter application. But, if you have a GM truck with the same engine as PF then, this answers the curiosity of which is better even without including the FRAM Ultra or e.g., a Denso or SuperTech.
