Oiled or Dry air filter

I bought a 2005 with a K&N cold air system on it, I am thinking of putting an S&B filer on instead of the K&N, and running the K&N for a few days every oil change while I re-oil the S&B filter, having the truck sit while the air filter dries is a pain. I have read a lot of people running a dry filter, is this just because of concerns of excess oil clogging the MAF? Is there another reason? My 2005 doesnít have MAF, so Iím not worried about clogging it up, and I donít see a small amount of excess oil being pulled through my air filter as being any worse than the oil fumes being pulled into the turbo by the CCV. No plans for a CCV delete at this time.

Thanks,

Phil

An oiled filter will be cheaper over the long run because you can clean it and reuse, while a dry filter can only be cleaned so much before it has to be replaced. With an S&B, it really wouldn't matter which one you coose becasue they are both very high quality and will provide great filtration. Hope this Helps

Thanks Adam, I'm going to take a look at the AFE filter as well.
