K&N is a terrible filter in my experience.  Soooo bad!  Did I mention that?

Regardless of what you install or keep I would urge you to install a "Filter Minder".  That device causes you to replace your filter element "only" when it becomes restrictive and not before.  That ability should get you your money back with one avoided filter change or one early one.  Win Win situation.  Cheap on Ebay.  There is even a model that tells you when the crank case filter is plugged.  The info it provides is color coded and you don't even have to be literate...no electrical hook up and no math.  Even I understood it....red stripe means go get a new filter.  Yellow means get ready to do so but that adds complexity....for me.

Steve, install a ECO system 1400 cfm ( a little overkill) 7 in H2O and the 8v92 can breathe , the Eco system is a DD 2 strokes best friend or any other diesel engine IMO   

good luck

Walker AIRSEPS are made for marine and generator use only.  Use a heavy duty paper element air filter and do not blow out the air filter to clean it-as that will make micro holes in the filter that will allow dirt in.  K&N stopped making industrial filters because of the lack of good filtering.  Good Luck, TomC

A very unfortunate problem when a business gets a bad reputation.

Walker Engineering, or Walker Airsep is a highly regarded company and no connection to Sam Walker.  Please do not get them confused.

I think we are confused about the Airsep being a Filter. It is Not

The following is from the Walker Engineering site.

Trucks/Commercial Vehicles
Trucks and buses have long been often overlooked when it comes down to the handling of crankcase fumes. Many vehicles use a “dump tube” which vents the oily fumes all over your frame, engine components, and cab areas.

Our over-the-road (OTR) AIRSEP® kits are designed to deal with these unpleasant fumes and help in lowering crankcase pressure for better engine performance.

Pick-up Trucks
Since 1999 our Dodge RAM AIRSEP® retrofit kits have found their way on to the some of the USA’s most serious Dodge Ram enthusiast’s truck. The easy to install kit replaces the plastic “aspirin” catch bottle shipped with your truck. Performance, styling, and elimination of oil mess on your steering box make this kit a “must have” if you own a Dodge RAM.

RVs and Motor Coaches
Today's modern luxury coaches include impressive diesel power packages. However, most engines do not include a closed crankcase system. The Walker AIRSEP® for RV applications address the problem of oil leaks and oil mess,not to mention fouled and dirty radiators. Be sure to read more about our innovative system in the "WHATS NEW" section, or select "RV" in the Model/HP field when searching for a system for your coach.
