    Thanks, that's what I was woundering. If the Air Box had changed.

    I doubt it. Mine has trapped quite a bit, as apposed to absorbing it like the stock one.

    bump, I was thinking about getting one of these but the AFE website shows nothing for a 2012. Anyone else have any other experience with it?

    I ended up buying a AFE drop in, same size as the 2011 uses.

    Yes, actually, shape of the air filter can drastically change the filtering capability along with the amount of air flow through the medium.

    This is why most filters are now pleated, which adds more surface area AND improves the affective filtering (the slanted section that is perpendicular to flow has a much greater chance of stopping particles from getting past the filter, since the cross section of filter media with respect to the air flow path has significantly increased).

    This is the reason why cone type filters are popular to the tuner crowd, since they can significantly increase the surface area that the air can flow through (versus a flat panel filter), which in turn decreases the resistance to air flow.

    The problem is this - most manufacturers of these aftermarket filters rely on the shape to make up for a cheap filter media, and the inevitable variation is manufacturing quality associated with cheap media will give some folks terrible results and some great results.

    The trick is to find a great filter with great flow that doesn't cost a fortune, and these are virtually non-existant.

    Yes, and I would suspect they would filter different. In fact I would suspect your cone filter would filter more efficiently, since the velocity of air should be lower through the cone type filter. Seeing your intake tract, it makes me wonder how much gets past the drop in filters....

    Dang whippersnapper - that's dirty. What good is a filter that doesn't filter? I'm gonna have to go check my filter now.
