    Some folks bought NAPA filters and they weren't very good quality. I got mine from Greg@Pace cheaper than the local dealers.

    SRG963 is right about those things being flimsy. I was a little rough changing one yesterday, that was a $50 mistake. Funny, the old one held up fine during the removal and reinstallation. It was the new "OEM" piece of toilet paper that came apart at one corner and on the top of the filter. I've secured two for $74.00 straight from our good friend in Australia, CP.

    Shawn,

    You need Charlie's heater hoses, stat!

    --

    And I'm gonna need to do this at some point. I'm sure the filter in my G8 is naaaasty. I've never changed it. I may just wait, though, save up lots of pennies, and see if I can't order the three-gauge setup, V6 radiator cover, AND filters all at once. Unless there's no benefit to that combination. Then I'll just do 'em whenever.

    If they increased power or handling, I'd have them. I'm too slow for "show" mods still, lol

    I suggest changing your filter yearly, after the pollen stops falling on your car.
    That's my plan anyways
