New at Summit Racing Equipment: Green Air Filters
Green Filter elements use a pre-oiled, double-layer woven cotton filter that is pleated to provide 10-15% more filtration surface than a typical paper element. According to Green Filter, that means measurable improvements in power, throttle response, and fuel mileage versus a paper element.
If Green Filter is right and the average vehicle uses 20 paper air filters over 100,000 miles, that’s a lot of money being thrown away, not to mention the environmental issues all those filters cause. Because a Green Filter is reusable and carries a lifetime warranty, one filter can last the life of the vehicle. Just clean the filter every 30,000 miles with Green Filter’s biodegradable cleaner, then re-oil with the recommended filter oil.
All Green Filter air filters have a stainless steel mesh around the filter element, plus a perimeter rubber seal molded in a four-step process that assures an airtight seal and prevents rubber from seeping onto the element and restricting airflow.
Summit Racing offers Green Filter OEM replacement elements for many late model domestic and import vehicles, plus universal round and conical elements for performance applications, air cleaner assemblies, crankcase breathers, and element cleaner/oil.
