I appologize if this one gets a bit long winded. Had an issue yesterday, I had changed oil in my 2011 Scion XB a few days ago and finally got around to checking the air filter. It was still the factory Denso piece that came in the car. Anyways, I took it out just to see how it looked, looked like it had lots of life left in it yet, but it looked like dirt was starting to leak in past the left rear corner of it, back where the top of my air cleaner box is kinda hinged to the bottom half and there are no latches. I've seen the quality of the napa gold filter for my car and was not impressed with it, it has plastic around the outer edge that is slightly pliable, but there is no sealing gasket of any kind around the outer edge and I'm afraid of it not sealing to the box ok. My only other options at my local parts stores were Fram, STP, and Purolator Classic. The Frams are now made by Champion Labs, just like the STP, and I dont like them at all. They are similar in construction to the purolator, using the same type of filter media, and then bond that to an outer plastic shell, but they have a foam gasket glued around the top edge of it to seal to the top half of my air cleaner. Everyone of them I looked at, the foam seal was glued fast along the outer edge of the air filter, until you got to one of the corners where it had about an 1/8" gap between the the outer edge of the seal and the outer edge of the filter. As I said, the purolator is basically the same, but it has a rubber seal around the outer edge. It seemed like the lesser of two evils, and since my factory filter seemed to be allowing dirt in and I didn't have a Toyota dealer near by, thats what I got. It fits ok, but sticks up above the bottom half of the air box that it makes it hard to slip the tabs of the top half into place in the back. So, having had experience with AFE drop in filter before (had one in my Jeep Wrangler), I think I wanna get a Pro Dry S replacement for mine. The poly urethane seal looks like it will seal nice, and the ridges/folds of the filter media don't stick up above the top of the seal, so getting the top of my filter box on should be easy as well. The part I like the most is the Pro Dry S filter states it has a filter efficiency of 99.2%, where as the Purolator is only 96.5%. However, this was my main reason for posting this, are they using the same test to come up with that number, or is AFE using a test that uses coarser dust particals? I'm not concerned about ultimate peformance, I just want what will filter the best. Thanks.
