I had a bad feeling when I picked up this Summit brand re-usable air filter element today. As if I have not been in this hobby long enough to know that you get what you pay for. And what was I to expect when this 14×3 Summit air filter was almost half the price of the name brand equivalent? If you haven’t figured out what is wrong here, then let me detail it for you. The solution that Summit uses to oil-bath the air filter element chewed right through the nitrile sealing surfaces. This is not a one-off factory defect…. it’s a manufacturing disaster. The only good part is that the Summit retail store is just 5 miles from my house, if I had ordered this from another state… boy would I be furious.
