Air Raid OEM replacement drop in?

I need to change my air filter, Has anyone used the Air Raid stock replacement?

Airaid OEM Drop-In Replacement Filter 860-341

How is it?
Notice any difference?



Eventually I will upgrade to a full intake but for now I just need to change the filter

Talking My anwser to why is........

What the dealer/stealer told him after voiding the warranty,
These pleated re-useable filters are good /great when used properly,
I run an AFE Stage 2 with complete aftermarket housing.
What needs to be emphasized is some people claim that small particles can DUST your engine causing abraision and internal gouging.
I call BS ! ! ! the main problem people with these aftermarket filters have is they over oil them once they clean them for the first time.
It takes VERY little oil to properly oil your filter after cleaning, follow the directions and put a few drops or sprays in a conservative fashion NOT covering the entire filter with colored oil. Let the filter set for 30 min with the majority of your oiling (sparsely) being at the top of the standing up position. Gravity will pull the oil down and the fibers will diffuse the oil around the entire filter. "You will be amazed how far a little oil will GO " You can Always add more if needed, give it 30 min to absorb into the filter media and you should see complete coverage.

For those of you going this route with vehicles still under Warranty so as to change the element and not the complete housing, you will get higher intake flows with these aftermarket filters..... point being if something does go wrong with your truck and all you have done is put in a high flow filter, PUT THE STOCK CHOKE BAG BACK ON THE TRUCK BEFORE YOU GO BACK TO THE STEALERSHIP. "There is no tech or computer in the WORLD that can determine you have been switching out AIR filters" Go ahead and buy the High Flow pleated cleanable model most are 6, 12 , half dozen or the other !
Most prefer AFE for full KITS but AIR RAID is fine for Drop In. Carefull how much oil you use to re oil after cleaning A Little GOES a LONG way. Good Luck and Go For It. That Dusting your internals in BS in My Book, UNLESS ALL YOU DO IS DRIVE ON DIRT AND EVEN THEN IT IS A STRETCH.

Agreed.

I have the S&B intake and the filter reoiling instructions tells you how many grams of oil to use, this way you CAN'T over or under oil the filter.

i dunno why it let the dust in, i am 100% confident that i oiled it properly after cleaning, as i have been using K&N filters for 10+ years without problems, all i know is after this experience i never use another aftermarket filter on a diesel engine again. I probably could have fought it, but woulda ended up costing me more in lawyers then what i spent on the engine. Ford's statement from the big wigs in the office was, "FoMoCo will not warranty a dusted engine, no matter what the circumstance".

thats the most ridiculous thing i ever heard. i would have pulled the engine and placed it in front of their showroom.

i didnt even oil my filter and i havent cleaned it since i bought it like 2 years ago. I even ran my truck without an intake for a little while. i was more curious how it sounded and i liked it so i just left it off for a good while. i just put a screen over the inlet.

dusted engine from an intake is 100% BS IMO
