That's not paper then. It's synthetic media

I just checked, and I'm a bit surprised.
I've had the Amsoil EAA208 nanofiber in my airbox for about 6 years. It is still filtering well.
I may change it to an OE winter filter tomorrow.

The filter that came from the factory will outflow your engine. Check your manual for the replacement schedule, you will find that it seldom requires service.

Good thing you asked us, isn't it!!

6 years and how many km? What kind of cleaning intervals?

...this is what I'm running now.

Maybe no hp increase but this might be the best pick for longevity.

It might flow better than a Mann/Fram/etc. but more flow usually means less filtration, so who knows

Just different filtration. Nanofiber synthetic media vs. paper media. AEM has a nanofiber panel filter, too. AFE, too.

Why not just clean and re-install per Amsoil instructions?

I bought a new filter, installed it and saved the amsoil one I may give it a good vac and use it again.
Amsoil says its good for 4 years, so I thought I would change it.
It was not letting anything into the intake, inside top of the airbox was spotless.

Default Proof that a CAI can work

Hi folks,
I thought I would chime in here since I have some CAI retaled news that I'm sure will spark some discussion.
We just came off a dyno session while testing our new Passat exhaust & tune where we found a pretty significant power improvement with our cold air intake on both the Passat and Jetta. We did 3 pulls with the stock airbox installed, 3 pulls with no airbox installed (just MAF and tube extension) and finally 3 pulls with our CAI. After all the hype about intakes being worthless on our 2.0lcr TDIs we were pleasantly surprised by the results...13whp over the stock intake and about 8whp over just the intake tube extension. These were with a AEM DryFlow filter and yes, the original VW filter was fresh and clean.
Feel free to discuss and/or call me a liar while I dig up the dyno sheets.
