    I have a 2009 R/T 5.7L

    been using a K&N filter for as long as I have owned the car, was thinking about switching to the SRT filter. just wondering which one of those (part #) would work for mine.

    Any reason you’re changing?

    SRT filter #05038041AA fits the 5.7 HEMI and the 6.4 HEMI. It's my favorite thing to get for "free" with my Amazon Prime points.

    The regular Mopar filter for the 5.7 HEMI is #4884899AC. It's a darn good filter .... just not quite as good as the SRT filter.

    well seen so much bragging on the SRT filter I am decided to try it on my next oil change, I have 102,000 miles on my 2009 and have been suing the K&N. for all I know it may be cheaper. but I only change my oil about once a year. since I only put 5,000 miles a year on it.

    Any decent filter will suffice. More important in your case may be change frequency. Depending on how you drive your car as well as where you live you might want to consider changing the oil twice per year.

    It all depends on the type of oil (full synthetic or conventional) and the duration of his trips. Short trips (less than 10 miles) do not burn off the moisture condensation that accumulates in the oil. If he isn't taking short trips and is using synthetic oil, I think that one-year change intervals (with filter) are okay. Changing full synthetic, at only 2,500 miles, would be overkill.

    Conventional oil, however, should be changed around 5,000 miles. Some manufacturers specify 7,500 miles.
