Default Cool Blue Air Filter

Has anyone put in one of those Cool Blue Air Filters into their cars? Is it a K&N type filter or just a regular Fram style filter?

Ahhh.....Accel. I've never been a fan of them. They hold the bottom of the market on ignition component quality, which includes their pretty yellow replacment coils for our cars.

I doubt they're making these themselves. I'd like to know who makes them for them before I pass any further judgement. They MIGHT be a quality product as they're not as cheap as many of the knock-offs. These are more in line with K&N'* pricing structure.

I think I seen those around, but have no idea what they are about. I only know about the Kool Blue and K&N filters out there.

Ractive is one of the other. I used them. Tutcanindustries or something like that.

You're not really gaining much between brands, more of a difference is from type. Get whatever looks best for your scheme, and you'll be fine.
