    Put it in the hydraulic press and make a shop-grown diamond!

    (That’s how science works, right? Pretty sure that’s how to science.)

  6. …and now you know why diesel mechanics have shorter life expectancy than regular mechanics ;(

  7. Is this one of those Diesel Particulate Filters you guys are always complaining about?

  8. If that was a K+N, that wouldn’t have happened because the particulates would be inside your worn out motor

  9. The filter has single-handedly removed 5 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere. Carbon capture in action.

  10. Mmmm cancer.

  11. Tier 5 has appeared.

  12. Well, at least there was a filter.

  13. the rich get richer

    because the air ain’t getting through

  14. Better that air filter than our lungs lol

  16. i have a 1981 Audi 80 (4000 for ‘muricans) as beater car… and there the dumbfucks had an idea to put the engine fume vent straight in front of the air filter… so this is regular at every oil change at 7.5k km …

  17. [Direct exhaust injection.](https://i.imgur.com/q03Aap8.jpg) That man who posted that was so ahead of his time. That and the guy who ran a 50lb bag of sand through his intake to port and polish his engine. I miss those forum shit posts.

  18. This kinda stuff makes me think that the wrench-turners who dislike electric cars have gotta eventually come around. I mean, I know the drawbacks, but being exposed to a whole lot less airborne soot has gotta be better for you if you want to be in the business for 30 years, right?

  19. At least it is doing its job?

  20. Afterburner mod working as intended.

  21. And this kids is why Regen and Def was implemented. Stop gutting the shit made to clean the exaust

    Oof

  23. That filter did it’s job perfectly. I salute it

  24. The intake ducting was clearly leaking just as bad. Fresh air from outside the engine bay matters

  25. Let’s see the inside of that thing

  26. Thanks for reminding me I need to clean my air filter

  27. “Clean” diesel

    Am I the only person that’s super excited that the rest of us get to breathe this shit in every day?

  29. That’s disgusting. It belongs in the atmosphere and waterways.

  30. Fuck Diesel engines. The sooner they disappear the better.
