i use a K&N air filter, and when i worked at a car dealership all the mechanics there said that the only thing about synthetic oil is that you can wait longer between changes. So i just use whatever they use at the local toyo dealer. dont know much about bed covers, sorry

When I did an oil sample (K & N installed), my sample came back and the silica level was off the chart. Silica = DIRT. In fact, I had the K&N filter in for less than 200 miles.

Yes. In my testing, they flow well, and filter great.
