Question Big Honkin air filter.

Hello, Will this replace my 97 stock 5.9 12v air filter?

Probably the two most important air filter numbers are...

1. Particle size (in microns)...and...
2. CFM (Cubic feet per minute of flow)

Big is good, but unless the flow rate is adequate for your engine it will run fat and sluggish.

Best to check factory specs.

A good example of particle size vs flow issues are the K&N units that so many rodders love. They love'em because they have very high flow (cool). They flow at a very high rate because they don't stop much of anything from getting into your engine (not cool).

Match the right flow rate and particle size for a long lived, happy motor.

Walmart used to carry this filter but it has been discontinued. On average most are $35 to $40 +or- shipping.

Thanks Robin. I was reading about 5.9's on the Cummins Forum of the Dodge Diesel forum and they talk about using a filter called Big Honkin Airfilters to use on Dodge trucks. Can't find it know but i read you can gain 15 hp with one.
