I like OB air cleaners, simple and effective. Also much cheaper.

I don't buy any of those published "X% better air flow with my paper filter" by people selling paper filters.

My opinion is paper filters came into use because it is a great business and mechanics love them after years of changing messy OB cleaners. Don't blame them, but I don't have to worry about getting greasy, anything you do with a DD is messy, and I don't worry about the time required!!

That monster MC5 air cleaner is a mystery to me, the GM filter for the same engine is less than half that size and no big deal to change except it is kind of hard to get the bottom pan lined up on the studs.

  They are still used in desert areas. Ive been reading and in the middle east, India, etc., it sounds quite common they install OB filters, paper just cannot deal with the volume of dust. I also havnt seen any increase in general range of overhaul times on Mercedes after they switched. They went 1/2 a million miles with OB filters, they still do with paper, cant be the filter.
