I must say, I'm not impressed with the attitude from the CPR folks. Simply put, the dimensions of their product are off, requiring you to distort the filter frame to get it to fit over the base correctly. I don't know why they don't acknowledge that, and choose instead to make fun of people who spent the $300 for an air filter that doesn't quite fit together right.
And, here's something about vise-grip pliers- (ignoring the fact that the picture shows them being used as a clamp to try to fix the distorted filter frame and base), these pliers can be used to apply the lightest of pressure, as well as plastic-crushing force. I've been a Automotive Master Tech for almost 40 years now, and I know one thing for sure-
you have to be smarter than the tools you're using.
Something the boys at CPR have yet to figure out.
