Which filter would you use?

Would you use a k&n filter or Airaid filter?

Re: Which filter would you use?

I been using a K&N for years and have not had any problems with it, I have found it provides good breathing, filtration, performance and improved fuel consumption. I think you need to compliment whatever you decide on with a straight thru/sports muffler though.

Re: Which filter would you use?

Well I have the Airaid filter on right now and I was just curious to know which people prefer. I may buy a k&n filter to go on my Airaid CAI and then just have two filters to swap and clean

Re: Which filter would you use?

I personally like non-oiled filters, like the one on the afe intake. Some say oil actually helps catch more, but it can also have some negative effects like screwing with sensors.

People actually have problems with IAT sensors too. If you google it you will see people talking about it with dodge trucks. Plus dry filters are easy to maintain.

How do you maintain a dry filter?

Re: Which filter would you use?

I have used foam, dry and gauze filters, I prefer the foam out of all of them. The dry filters wash up nicely if you put them in the washer machine, but cold water only and NOT FOR LONG.

Youd have to be a moron to over-oil the air filter to the point of screwing with the MAF (if you had a vehicle that had one), or any other sensor for that matter.

Re: Which filter would you use?

I do agree with you there Ryan, but I own a business and due to this I now just assume most people are morons. Haha, but seriously people do amaze me on a weekly basis.

(not intended for op, just sayin)

Im sure. It is tough to determine whether the filter has been fully oiled, but a light spray is more than sufficient...not a dousing.
