400 ISL Cummings Air Filter

We are getting ready to change our air filter in our 2007 Winne Vectra, any advice for upgrade? We have ECO BC 11x18BO and have found the stock filter but would like to look for better options.

Look on page 57 of the linked PDF. I can't tell by the number you give, which filter you have. You could go bigger within this series but to do anything else will require some significant intake plumbing changes. This filter requires vertical mounting due to the position of a drain fitting.

thanks for the PDF, it looks like we have the biggest in the series. 94973-007. I dont think I am willing to change the plumbing yet so I will likely just replace it with the same. thanks for the reply this site has always been helpfull.

I always liked the Winnie Vectra. It was on our list of full timing coaches back in '05-6 but we went another direction because we wanted a tag axle and AquaHot. They are fine coaches at any rate.

I've been studying air filter systems as I have a similar set up as you. Coach builders like the Farr Eco lines because they can plumb them backward and the whole canister is a throwaway so it's fairly small for the air flow. I'm going to re plumb my intake system with a housing from Donaldson with replaceable elements. I'm going to shorten up the clean side of the intake system while I'm doing it.

Safe travels.

If you decide to change, be careful in the choice. A physically larger filter doesn't necessarily pass more air through if the filter technology is different. Filter material and shape have a large effect. If you stick within the same series of filter products, the other specs are probably the same and bigger is better, but if you change to a different type you need to look at all the specs (cfm and restriction) and not the sq inches of surface. Sometimes you can use an advanced filter design that is actually smaller than your OEM filter.

After much research, this is my choice for up grade:

We love the Vectra, my Wife really wanted the front kitchen so we are both very happy.

Interesting, wonder what the CFM rating of my filter is. It is physically larger, but may not support the same CFM as this one. Mine is a 62891-002 Farr filter and is the large check the whole assembly when done type ;-)
