afe pro dry s?

I am helping one of my friends put in 155/50's and a pmax. He's wanting a cai to go with it. I leaned him towards afe due to that's what me and my wife have and they work great. He doesn't want an oiled filter(k&n syndrome) so I pointed him towards the pro dry s. Are these good units, haven't seen much on them like the pg7's and 5r's?

He is aware the stocker is best for filtration, but wants one anyway. So we can skip that part. The area is east tn, so no real dusty conditions to worry with.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

The Pro Dry S will be fine man. I ran one for about 3 years before I switched over to the S&B. I really liked it actually because I could just wash it and then dry it and then stick it back on.

Why did you ditch the AFE and go S&B?

I had the kit that had the filter and battery tray in one and I didn't like that it sucked in hot air all the time so I got a sealed CAI. I only went with the S&B on the second go around because it was like $100 less.

I had the dry filter on my AFE CAI with sealed box, and the previous owner must have put it through the washer or something because it wasn't a normal shape, and must have oiled it or something because it was black, I mean black. That was AFTER I washed it and dried it several times.

I went ahead and bought an oiled, and can definitely notice a difference. Deeper tone, I've improved 1.5mpg towing, and 1mpg no load.

I'd try to steer him to the oiled filter but that's just me. I won't go with a dry filter ever again, even if it was just because of how he cleaned it. They only offer 2 layers of filtration, the other AFE's are 5 and 7 I believe. Much better protection.

Beware of dusting with oil filters. The K&N i had on my cummins painted the inside of my turbo black befoer i put a dry amsoil filter on in it's place. Doesn't happen to all but mine filtered as well as a screen door.
