    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

    AFE AEM dad never really like K&N didnt think they were really filtering anything because so much air is going thru them. that meeans everything else goes thru my point of view

    afe. they would sort of split the middle between good flow and good filtration?

    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.
