Overview: The most expensive filter system that we tested has a rather unique look. The Advanced Power Air Cleaner was the only system to use a stainless-steel mesh filter element. The system provided a very fabricated/race look due to the brushed aluminum finish. The racing look was backed up by some of the top performance registered.
Analysis: The performance delivered by this system was impressive. We’d like to see a bit better retention method for the heat shield and perhaps a second filter option for those living in the dust bowl.
