I have to agree with Ronin, a paper filter that is designed to last 12,000 or more miles must be increadibly thick and restrictive and manufactured as cheaply as possible. AFE removes many of those layers, the filter is much thinner than the stock pleats and uses more costly materials. Consolidated it's not a panel filter like you are thinking, but a much larger element with a lot of restriction. The stock filter is much larger than even the aftermarket cone filters that we are used to, and or less than $90 it's worth a try if you are so skeptical, and if you don't like it sell it. I wasn't expecting much either but it's doing what it advertises.
