S&B intake with "dry filter"

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on an intake. Anyone out there running the S&B with the dry filter? In the past I have always run the cotton/oil filters. The only problem I have it after a cleaning or two they seem to never clean and look as nice as new. If the dry really flows and filters as good I wouldn't mind just buying a new one so long as they last a little while.

I've run dry filters on my last 3 vehicles including the current PSD, although it's the aFe.

I have a used AFE Dry filter system that I can sell you if you want to save some money. PM me if interested, system came off my truck when they passed emissions testing in my area.

I have the S&B dry filter. Works great! I've have no codes or any issues with it at all.

The dry will filter and flow as much as the oiled filter, no worries there. Their Dry filter was designed for those who would rather replace than clean their filter. Sounds like a perfect match for you. The S&B intake is the best value intake on the market.

I had the AFE dry on my 7.3. I liked it but never like the idea that it did not filter as well as an oiled filter. The S&B dry claims some pretty good filtration numbers.

I run an S&B with the dry filter. No issues to date.

I don't trust myself to properly clean and oil an oil type filter, so dry it is for me.

When I ran oiled filters on my past Mustang's, I could never get the oiling process just right after cleaning. I definitely do not want excess filter oil getting on my turbo impeller.
