Air filters are subjected to extremely high loads and stress. The environment contains a large amount of dust, dirt and other and particulate which can be harmful to your engine.

 

Genuine Volvo air filters provide a 99.9% high efficiency barrier between the outside environment and the critical components of todays high performance Volvo Penta engines. It is vitally important that the correct genuine high performance air filter is installed.

 

Often the claim is that an aftermarket product matches or exceeds the specification of a genuine part. This is never the case. The picture opposite demonstrates the difference between the aftermarket product and the genuine article. If a filter is cheaper to buy, it is because it contains less filter medium and is made from cheaper materials that do not conform to the engines requirements for safe operation.
