    I opened up my airbox yesterday to see if there were any bugs or crap that needed to be cleaned out. I also wanted to see how dirty the air filter was (fine at 1700ish miles).

    Given that I clean tons of bugs off my front end twice a day lately I was expecting it to be full of crap. Nothing in there but a little dust on the dirty side of the filer.

    A while back somebody (I think it was WNY Cat) posted up a picture of some of the writing on the OE filter. Another person asked for the rest of it but the filter was already back in the car.

    I took a picture while mine was out. The OE filter is a Mahle which excites me. Lots of good came from that Diamaler relationship for sure. I'll most likely be sticking with the OE Mahle filter for a long time...

    Looks like the Mopar part # is 68172459AA and the Mahle equivalent is LX3482

    don't they only filter down to 5 micron while others are about 1 micron?
