Does a pro guard 7 filter need oiled right out of the box?

Does it need oil applied to it when it is new or does it already have oil applied?

I have a Pro Guard 7 drop in filter.
I couldn't see or feel any oil on mine out of the box so I put some on.

AFE oil is a honey amber colour and the filter media is a lighter yellow so you can definately see it when it's applied to a clean filter.

I was cheap with the oil and let the filter sit for 20min so the oil could wick into the filter. Went back and oiled the light spots.
I had to put 3 coats on mine.

You might also want to use a flashlight and check for bits of wire screen trimmings between the pleats. I found 4 pieces on the clean side of mine.

Thanks guys I was hoping it was oiled. It is brand new. How often do they need cleaned and re-oiled?
