Anyone had experience with the "High Air" washable air filter through Walker Engineering?

Looks like it would be a cost savings to be able to remove and wash rather than remove and dispose?

walker is just a high priced version of a K&N filter

I have the Walker AirSep on my Cummins 6BTA 370 and it "is" actually a K&N filter. It's stamped K&N on the end of the filter. Made by K&N for AirSep. Custom sized for the AirSep system. Tried to replace through the auto parts supply store .. no go. Walker knows what they're doing there.

1018 hours on my '02 and have replaced it 2X. Works for me.

Couple of follow up questions.

What size Isuzu was it? I assume that you replaced the foam filter with the S&B washable. Did you remember what model S&B you used? Did you remove the "metal cage" under the foam filter on the Isuzu?

I would remove that metal screen. I have heard of more than one that has ingested that screen and caused some problems. You may have to use a rubber coupling and some plumbing to get the filter on the intake.
