I thought Purolator made good filters...........but look at the pleat counts. Cabin filter ~45 vs ~28, old filter has ~60% more filtration area. Engine air filter ~27 vs ~ 19, old filter has ~42% more filtration area.

FWIW: I prefer original Honda engine air filters (they have a light coating of oil on the media) and Fram Febreze/activated charcoal cabin filters.

BTW: You should clean your MAF sensor too. Will take you another 5 minutes :)

you should examine the bottom side of the engine air filter since that's the side that faces incoming air flow.

I think the Purolators will work fine, but I agree with you and do the same! :thmsup
