The aren't any
advantages to running an "oiled cotton gauze" air filter over a quality dry filter, like the Donaldson power core filter offered by Volant in their Hemi CAI kit.

If you what to argue that oiled cotton gauze air filters are cleanable & reusable keep in mind that the synthetic media Donaldson Power core filter is rated for 100k miles before it needs to be replaced. That's a lifetime filter for most users! So if you don't go over 100K miles you won't have to replace it!
And most importantly do not ever forget the fact that;
The oiled cotton gauze air filters sold by K&N, Volant, Airaid, AFE, AEM, Injen and every other manufacturer.... may flow more air than a OEM paper filter they also allow more fine particles of dirt to enter your engine
while doing it! Dry filters do not have any issues with oil entering your intake track and no oil passing over any intake sensors as well!
