Emgo air filters

I had purchased 2 EMGO air filters a while back and when going to install they were too small by 1/8-3/16 inch. I emailed EMGO back in March and they were going to get a housing to check it. I never heard back and have emailed numerous times. Any one else ever had an issue?

I don't mean to preach but that's one of the main reasons to stick with OEM. I once ordered their oil filters by mistake. Their recommended change interval as I recall was something ridiculous like 1500 miles. Quality would certainly be in question with that requirement. And then of course is the fit issue you have found. Not worth the savings IMHO.

Nothing wrong with Honda parts. There is a reason a lot of aftermarket parts are cheaper. Corners have to be cut to sale cheaper. A little more spent and less problems.

&@%# I went to the dealer a couple days ago and priced a filter. $80+. Checked eBay $35 for the Emgo. I'm not a filterologist so I typed Emgo in that little search box above for product info before ordering. Read nothing but praise and adoration for Emgo. So I ordered.......and now I read this.

You dealer is raping you on that filter! I bought one at my local dealer for $34 same as the partfisch price without the shipping.
Now if that was $80 installed that is a heck of a deal!
