PTC Air Filter - Factory Box Replacement Filter - 351PA5907 Review


Hey, everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and today we're taking a quick look at the PTC custom fit engine air filter. So this is going to be the barrier between our engine and the outside world. It's going to help to keep out and trap any kind of harmful particulate matter from getting into our engine, gunking it up and decreasing the airflow through our engine. It's going to keep all that matter trapped in the filter itself. So, over time we can take it out, replace it and get that same performance out of our engine that we expect.

This particular filter is going to be a fit for the 2011 through 2014 Ford Mustang, for the 3.7 liter V6 engine, and also for the five liter V8 engine. It also fits the 2010 Ford Mustang with the 4.6 liter V8 engine.So, this is going to fit in that air intake housing. Has this silicone barrier over the top that helps to take up any gaps in our filter, or between the filter and the housing, so that we don't have any little areas that things can leak in through. So it's all going to pass through that pleated material to trap anything, and keep it out of the engine.It is going to be an easy install, usually just a matter of taking that air intake box apart. Typically, the instructions on how to do that should be in your owner's manual for your vehicle, so you can check that out for a Ford Mustang and it should be something you can do with some hand tools and a few hours' time, if that.

Typically, it takes about 20 minutes really, just depending on finding that right tool, maybe a Torx bit or something like that to get into your Ford Mustang's air intakes box.But as far as the construction, again, we've got that silicones gasket going around the top, got some diamond plating here to help you give it some structure so it's not going to be sliding around in that air intake box.And as far as how often to change it, it really depends on the vehicle, but typically the manufacturer recommends every 12,000 to 15,000 miles. It's also a good idea to check your owner's manual, make sure that they don't say anything different. If they do, of course, go off of their recommendation, but otherwise, every 12 to 15,000 miles is a good marker to go by.But that's pretty much all there is to it for our PTC custom-fit engine air filter. We also have oil filters and cabin air filters available here at etrailer.com so check those out if you need those while you're at it.Thanks for watching and we'll see you next time.
