s&b cleanable or dry filter?

I ordered an s&b intake for my 05 with the cleanable filter and cleaning kit. I heard they are actually great and should clean every 2 oil changes? But I was wondering what filter was the perfered, dry or cleanable one?

Also has anybody took the clear top shield off? Make more noise? thanks guys!

Justin

i ordered the cleanable, wont have to order new filters all the time. if u are going to remove the lid you just as well send it back and do the diy intake.. imo, keep the lid on to have a true cold air intake.

Thats exactly what I was thinking of doing. Just because It would bug me to have a wet drying filter just when I would need to drive the truck. I think letting it sit for 3-4 days would be good. But is removing the lid ok? How hard was it to install alwil?

forgot to look. i would still leave the lid on. i have the old style that came with the truck when bought 2 weeks ago. the filter needs replaced cause it looked like crap. the p.o. did not need to own this truck. the filter has the "suction" noise with the lid on. hopefully the new style will make less noise
