Just done a little bit of research. The K&N filter is 5.094 inches tall, the Chevy Blazer stock filter is between 4.44-4.9 inches tall. Now, I know the 4.3l filters will fit our FWD engines, but with the K&N filter being at almost 5.1 inches, will it clear the frame when you remove the cansiter to clean the filter?
Kinda makes you wonder just how many people are going to be dumping oil down the kitchen sink just to clean a filter. And how clean can we get these filters? I would like to see some independant scientific studies done on this before I spend that much money.
