Get an k and n drop in filter instead.
Its possible, but I also have the water resistant pre filter that blocks most of it. I got it for two reasons. One for the light water protection, and the other reason for prolonging filter life.

Yeah I would say the pre filter is definitely a must why chance a 5k motor for a 50 dollar filter cover.

Agree with Jeff, got the dry charger and happy with it so far and have had zero issues, I wouldnt say the CAI is not worth it as I have seen a huge change over the K&N drop filter I had before the CAI.
