aFe Intake (Which One)

I am wanting to pick up an aFe Intake, but not sure which one. It seems the non-oiled ones are preferred, but they have two versions of this.

Pro Dry S
Pro Guard 7

They seem to claim the same gains (power and flow). Besides price, I just can't find a significant difference.

It's not at all certain that these filters will prevent dusting the engine. I was interested until I read the aFe filtration specs from their catalog. I might reconsider if it is proven that an aFe product will protect the engine as well as an OEM filter.

I mean, it's not as if I'm happy with the OEM filter, but I'd rather not make things worse.

Re: aFe Intake (Which One)

Stick with OEM for the moment. The aFe direct fit filters have some problems sealing to the top of the air box allowing dusty air past the filter and directly into the clean side of the air intake when the turbo gets full flow. Working with them now on the issue. Hopefully they make good with a fix.

Thank you for your insight. I suppose it makes most sense to wait then.

Re: aFe Intake (Which One)

I discovered my OEM filter had blown it's seal (on two sides) at 15000 miles. Just replaced it with the aFe Pro Dry S.

I have used K&N filters for the last 20 years, but I'm getting lazy and don't want to deal with the cleaning of an oiled filter.

Re: aFe Intake (Which One)

I went with dry. I bought the system when it first came out (pre-order) zero issues, and couldn't be happier.
