It's a perfect interchange… I've been running the 49 state filter on my 88 1500 for years with no problem. Go for it.
From a PRACTICAL standpoint, after comparing the 49 state airfilter the local dealer has to my California filter that the dealer does not have...I don't see why they won't interchange. I can't see where the micro amount of oil/gas that would normally contact the charcoal unit is going to hurt the paper element.
Your thoughts please? Thanks!
Can't blame them, I wouldn't stock something I didn't sell at least a couple of a month. Most dealers don't have the money or the room to stock everything. Even when you order from a dealer online they a lot of times have to get it from the warehouse.BTW
They don't stock them here in CA either, most now say no to any inventory and make you special order everything even gas filters at $25, WRONG!
