What is the difference between the three media – Pro5R, ProDryS and ProGuard7 – that aFe offers?

logo pic

aFe offers three different types of filter media for most of their filters and  intake systems because everyone has different driving conditions and different driving needs.  There is the Pro5R, ProGuard7 and ProDryS. The differences basically are:

1. Pro5R is 5-layers of progressively finer mesh oiled cotton gauze which offers maximum airflow. This media is ideal for those who drive mostly on paved street and highway who want maximum horsepower.

2. ProGuard7 is 5 layers of progressively finer oiled cotton gauze used in the Pro5R media backed by another 2 layers of finer porosity synthetic non-woven media which offers maximum protection.  This media is ideal for those who do a lot of unpaved, off-road driving in severe dusty and dirty environments where protection is more important than maximum horsepower.  This media is most popular with compression-ignition diesel truck owners.

3. ProDryS is a 2 layer progressively finer porosity synthetic non-woven media, which is oil-free and offers maximum convenience since it does not require re-oiling.  This media is ideal for those who don’t want the hassle of re-oiling a filter.

aFe BladeRunner Intercoolers

aFe POWER!

bladerunner logo

Stock intercoolers have sharp bends and corners. As air flows around these corners dead air zones are created. These dead air zones choke down the air and restrict airflow across the heat exchanger  resulting in power robbing core heat soak.

OCDiesel.com carries aFe intercoolers for:

Dodge trucks 03-07 5.9L Cummins : 46-20011

Dodge trucks 07.5-08 6.7L Cummins: 46-20031

Dodge trucks 07.5-08 6.7L Cummins: 46-20032 (includes tube upgrade kit)

OCDiesel.com carries aFe intercooler tube upgrades for:

Dodge trucks 07.5-08 6.7L Cummins: 46-20039

GM trucks 04-07 6.6L Duramax: 46-20049

MDV Technology Three Multi-Directional Vanes are built into each end tank to efficiently direct air flow throughout the entire heat exchanger. They help eliminate power robbing core heat soak and provide maximum cooling.

aFe Cold Air Intakes… Stage 1 or Stage 2? What’s the difference?

One of the first questions I  get about aFe Cold Air Intakes is “What’s the difference between Stage 1 intakes and Stage 2 intakes?”. The answer to the question is simple…  Stage 1 intakes replace the stock air box only and Stage 2 intakes replace the stock air box and the stock  intake tract.

Let’s ask a few questions…

1. How much power do you want?

Stage 1 intakes: Because it is not replacing the entire intake tract can give 1-10 horsepower and 10-20 foot-pounds of torque.

Stage 2 intakes: Because it is replacing the entire stock intake tract will give a significantly higher boost of 20-40 horsepower and 35-60 foot-pounds of torque.

2. How much money do you want to spend?

Stage 1 intakes: Because you are only replacing the air box you are going to spend a bit less. You’re also going to do less installing the system.

Stage 2 intakes:  You’re going to spend a bit more on this system because it replaces the stock intake tract. But, you get much higher gains.

3. What features do you need?

Stage 1 intakes: These will give you noticeable low-end torque gains. This air box will also provide you with a great engine noise improvement.

Stage 2 intakes: These will give you huge low-end torque gains and maximum horsepower gains. The open element to this system means a throaty sound with a mean growl.

Both systems are pretty easy to install at home in under 2 hours. They both use stock mounting points, work with stock electronics and do not interfere with the M.A.F. sensor. Both systems are a great way to add easy gains where it counts in a short period of time.

Pro GUARD 7 Air Filters:

To address the need for extra protection from dust and dirt with washable/reusable oil-impregnated cotton gauze filters, aFe developed a new filtration technology so revolutionary that we applied for and received a patent. This new filtration technology is aptly called Pro-GUARD 7. With 5 layers of progressively finer mesh medical grade cotton gauze with micro fibers that attract smaller and smaller particles as air passes through is combined with 2 layers of random-porosity non-woven synthetic polyester fabric. These 7 layer combination of cotton gauze and non-woven polyester is sandwiched between 2 layers of epoxy coated aluminum wire mesh.

Because of compression ignition of diesel engines, the tolerance is much tighter than in a gasoline spark ignition engine. These tight tolerances require clean air and lots of it. Diesel engines require 7 times more air than a gasoline engine of equivalent size. The patented Pro-GUARD 7 filter media delivers more cool clean air needed for extended engine life, better fuel economy and additional power

Efficiency refers to a filters ability to efficiently filter out the dust and dirt particles from entering the air intake of the vehicle over time. Pro-GUARD 7 was developed with the need for high efficiency in mind. Generally accepted SAE standard for filtration efficiency is 99.5% fine dust. There is course dust efficiency and fine dust efficiency. 99.50% course dust efficiency is not difficult to achieve. Typical performance/cotton gauze filters will five you the airflow you need, but they sacrifice filtration efficiency to do so. They achieve the 99.5% course dust efficiency. The 99.5% fine dust efficiency is a different matter. Fine dust is what you want to keep out in the tighter tolerance turbo diesel engine. Pro-GUARD 7has been tested to surpass 99.5% fine dust filtration efficiency while delivering high airflow.
